ok ok lets not get out of hand…. im not saying that the people at aka are bad or anything and they do do good work, i just think that in this case i was a bit overcharged…. also because im not very expierienced in buying derailers i was just wondering if it was a good deal?
derailer $60 ….. chain $60 ….. labour $35
and i am going to deal with it… this was the first time dealing with aka and after this i wont be very inclined to go back…. due to the price…..
and im not cheap…. i know biking can be an expensive sport btu taht doesnt mean that i should be happy about being charged $60 for a chain and $35 for a simple installation.
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?
i think that religion started off as a pretty good thing, it gave people that were in need of some guidance or help some where to turn too….but then through time and munipulation religion has turned into a massive complex organisation that secrectly runs a large portion of the world, now it causes more bad than good, it still provides guidance and help for people that are in need, but at the same time can be blame for quite a few wars and terrorist attacks, not to mention the whole scandal about the preist and the little boy. Religion at its best can be a good thing. Untill people try and force their beliefs on other people, or kill someone that belives in something else, then youll get the Middle east.
i think there has to be more to religion. think of how many people belive in some form of a religion, if someone could simply learn to link these religions they could practically rule the earth.
Muhahaha I will be that man. tommorw night ill do what i always do …… try to take over the world. :evil:
