In the market this past week to replace my stolen bicycle, I stopped by Riverfront Cycle because I had seen some nice used bikes in front of the shop.
Waiting on the customer before me the sales man told the young lady that all of the used bikes in front of the store were $100-$175.
They did not purchase a bike and left. I was waited on by the same sales man who advised me the bike I selected was $200, granted it rode well I thought it the nicest one on the rack.
I asked if they ever negotiated price, and he told me only on the used bikes. I pointed out the bike I wanted was used and offered him $175.
He checks with is boss, and tells me that the bike is $250 not 200 and NOT NEGOTIABLE.
Rather than spend my money with these creeps, I chose instead to buy a brand spanking new bike at another shop in town . . . I spent an additional $200, but I got a nice bike and was treated like a valuable customer. I will keep my family and friends out of this shop whose service was crap.
Pros: Nice Used Bike
Cons: Poor Treatment of Customers
