Two weeks ago I brought my bike in for a simple 70$ tune up. And as I've mentioned before the shifter broke. Along with that included in the tune up was according to the sign new cables and housing.
Sure enough, I get there today and he starts adding stuff up.
70 tune up
35 cables housing (Hey wait! I would have thought that was in the 70$ my bad).
35 new bearings for my headtube (this I don't really have a problem with, but still seems expensive).
270 for new shifter
25 to replace the shifter (after all this they charge me for that, balls!)
And then add the tax and you've got 454$. And on top of that they got grease all over my white bar tape. I wasn't too impressed with this place. I don't think I'll be going back.
Nice little expenditure for a bike I will barely be using anymore.
