Why is every single cycling forum I frequent turning into viral marketing for Rose and Bike Discount?
I've just posted this in another thread..
Cost of labour per hour in my LBS ( any job that takes less than an hour is charged at the hourly rate)......75 euros
Cost of service for forks including new oil/seals.....287 euros
Cost of Fox 650lb spring (4 week wait for delivery)....99 euros
Cost of spring and seals from CRC......48 euros
Most stuff I can do myself but was a bit hesitant on changing oil & seals, an hour on the net and got all the info needed, job done.
CRC and Rose give very good service, if my LBS did as well I'd use them all the time but sadly the shops around here are violently overpriced and staffed by gits.
Just popped into one of mine this morning (Aix-treme sports), for the same brakes as Mindmaps they want 195 euros per brake.
