I needed a 26 inch wheel with coaster brake for a crusier I was building from the ground up. I have 14 bikes at home and have been restoring bikes for 20 years now. So, I was a little puzzled when the guy on the other end of the phone kept insisting like a broken record that I would have to bring my frame into the shop. Im sorry, but I just wanted to purchase a rear wheel. I told him I could look at the wheel and know immediately if it was going to fit. (Never had one in all my years NOT fit.) I arrived at the shop a few minutes later and asked for a rear wheel with a coaster brake. A young schnitzle type begins to re-enact the scene from Hi Fidelity where a Joe off the street looking for a Steveie Wonder album for his daughter is ridiculed by the music snobs at the local record store. The Cycle Analyst schnitzel hands me a track wheel, i.e. no brake mechanism at all. I say no, I need a wheel with a coaster brake for a cruiser. He then hands me a rear wheel for a road bike. I ask him point blank if he even knew what a coaster brake was and he got very snippy before retrieving a rear wheel with coaster brake. I decided that despite my love for cruiser bikes and their good selection of cruiser stuff that I just could not, in good conscience, give them any business and left. As I walked out the door the twenty-something employee shouted very sarcastically ""Have a GREAT day"" over the thrash metal playing on the CD player.
Pros: good selection of cruiser accessories
Cons: immature and inept staff
