while riding this weekend my rear derailer got caught up and broke in half, after i threw it into a lake due to rage i decided to drop my bike off at aka the bike shop to get it fixed, i also asked them to put some new oil in my forks and tighten my cassette… anyways two days later i went to pick it up, the bill came out to be $170.00 i thought that was alright for all the work that got done….. but it turned out that they forgot to put oil in my forks and tighten my cassette!!!! so i payed $170.00 for a new derailer (shimano deore by the way) new chain and labour….. that seems a bit high……. at overtime sports this would have cost much less.
i know what your thinking "well why didnt you take it to overtime sports then?" well first of all overtime doesnt service forks, second of all overtime is only open till 530 which is a bit inconvient but whatev. so at the time aka was the shop that was open. The main reason i took it to aka is to get the forks serviced….. which they ended forgeting to do anyways soooo.
i dont really wanna complain about this, and i still think that aka is a good shop …. but $170.00 for chain,derailer, and labour!!!! WOW i think that is a bit much, am i right?
nothing like goin for a ride…then hittin up Wendys for some junior bacon cheeseburgers -AC
