Shop: Halter's Cycles
I don't know about that. So many things in there just don't seem real. First and foremost on my mind is how someone from a company writes and publishes an article regarding a lawsuit of theirs -- while the lawsuit is ongoing.
Regardless, they don't dispute owing the money, so I'm not sure how this is newsworthy.
This might only be interesting to me.
It is old news but maybe worth a read. Or not:
I agree.There is a trend in the works where a few brands are pushing dealers to act as a factory store for the said brand.
The downside to this is that even if you don't want shoes or a helmet or whatever from brand "x" you still pretty much have to carry them in the store.
I am all about picking the best items in each category. I have a hard time believing that one company can dominate all categories.
Choice and competition is ultimately pretty good for the end user.
One of my favorite things in the bike shop is to find new widgets that change the way we look at bikes. It is hard to find this new way of thinking in a store polarized with one brand.
IMO of course..
