How good is your shop?

This whole thread belongs in First World Problems. Shops in Van have got to be the best in the world. Every shop on the North Shore has knocked my socks off with their wizardry at one point or another.

Try living outside of a major riding area, where no one knows how to service suspension or disc brakes, let alone stocking parts from this millennium...

Suck it up dandelions!

Whining about Vancouver, by many measures the best city in the world, is a favorite local pastime. 😅

"Ooh my ride was too cold, it was like 5°!" While everywhere else is a million below zero and buried in a mile of snow...

^LOL. From the other side of the counter, I sometimes wonder what it'd be like to again work in a 'normal' shop. Banging out basic tune-ups on $150 Craigslist buys and doing flat repairs. It'd be so easy. But then there's the sales person who sells a commuter and tells you to install rack, fenders (that are the wrong size and style but you have to dremel the shit out of them anyway....), lights and a kickstand.......and the customer needs the bike in 15 minutes. Yeah no......
