Bicycle Buying And Repair reviews in Sioux Falls
Their advertising hype says they coach "all levels and abilities" but don't buy into (no pun intended) that, because the coach I got for mountain biking took one look at me and decided I wasn't a podium contender. I could see it on his face, it was a look like he couldn't be less interested. In fact he hardly looked at me when I walked up to meet him in Starbucks for the one-hour consultation, which Ionly got because I brought it up. Originally he emailed me "as soon as we receive your money, I'll put the plan up on Training Peaks." There was nothing about the one hour consultation until I brought it up, and he obviously didn't even want to be there when we met. All of the big money clients he has I'm sure will disagree, because he's making a lot of $$ off of them, so why wouldn't he give them the royal treatment? The $450 plan however, was one where (he ASSumed) there would be no ongoing income stream, so just get the money, go through the motions and then write it off. I was supposed to get a one-month check in with the "coach" (he's too busy promoting himself on facebook, managing his own team and competing in his own events to have time to coach beginners) --at the one month I got zero. No call, no email
After a month of getting into it, I realized there is so much more to training for a race than a cut and paste riding schedule (written for someone else :o) and yet he didn't suggest anything else because he really didn't want to coach me. I brought this up with the owner and asked for a partial refund, because I felt like I got ripped off, and he lied and told the owner he HAD suggested a more involved coaching plan. Last time I looked, I didn't have a poor memory, and I consider this another unethical act. If you're a beginner and just getting into racing, and want a REAL coaching experience, instead of a cut and paste "sucker born every minute" plan, go with CTS. If you have some weird fetish for throwing money away and getting the least value for your money, go with
Experiences and Purchasing Decisions, I have ever made. The Sales
Representative (Angie) was rude, uninformed, and lacked basic knowledge in the
brand, models, and styles of the different bicycles on display. Unfortunately-
I purchased the Trek Bike, and had to wait an hour and a half for a Tune-up. I
spoke with (
going to lunch, and when I return the bike would be finished with the Turn-Up. When I returned from lunch (Angie) and (
indicated that the bike was ready & done with the completed Tune-Up.
Anytime –you purchase a New Bike –you want to take it out
for a spin when you get home. So it was to my surprise, the air in the tires
was not adequate (recommends 60-80 psi) it had 25psi, the brakes were loose,
and there were several screws not tightened. I called the branch location, and
not been serviced. I asked them how it could be a “lack of communication” when
you said it face-to-face…Anyways they finally admitted they lied to me.
I have called the District Manager at Trek Bike (
finally spoke to (
I would receive a Tune-Up.
Bottom Line- these people
Its companies like (Trek Corporation) that gives other Big Businesses poor reputations of the typical Stereotype of “I
