My LBS messed up and wasted my time again yesterday. It's like they don't realize there's an internet with competition out there. Quoted me a week and a half to get a part. CRC can get it here in that same time, for cheaper. Plus they have all the colors of the rainbow.
It's like the LBS is banging their own nails into the coffin.
some of them get it, some certainly don't. and it's a shock in this era for those that don't. i would never be douchy enough to say it directly to them, but hell don't they get it- THE INTERNET LBS IS GONNA KILL YOU IF YOU DON'T WISE UP.
having said that i still buy more locally than on the net, but there's no guarantee that will continue to be the case.
Only paid $250 shipped no duty for my reverb post!!
Genuine question here: In this small example, when Canadian shop cost on the Reverb is $250, how does the LBS "wise up"?
Ride, don't slide.
