Bike shops can still operate with closed / locked doors.

My absolute favorite is when you take the bike out of the stand after changing a flat or something (while they watch) and they say, "Did you make sure the gears and brakes work OK?"

No. Did you want me to put your bike in the Tune-up Queue?

It doesn't need a Tune-up.

If you want the gears and brakes adjusted, it's a Tune-up.

When I bring in a box of Snickers Ice Cream bars, I bet I can get you to wash my car in the parking lot.

Probably because they're used to taking a car in for tires and getting up-sold on all sorts of other "services" the garage makes actual money on.

Apparently we have time to take customer's bikes out on trail rides??
I don't get the trail ride reference.?? I must be missing something, I am almost positive if the guys at Marty's saw my rack installed improperly, they would say something to me, i would hope, anyway. No? What am I missing?

did you read the review in the screenshot? the guy is claiming his bike was muddy when he picked it up, but spotless clean when he dropped it off. . . .
