Would you buy a bike from a LBS with a "no test ride" policy?
On the one hand it's fair that they don't want people to just try shit and then order it online for cheaper.
On the other hand, since they have eliminated the reason for me to go to the LBS, why shouldn't I just order it online for cheaper?
>maybe they will fix your flats
But I can already do that, why would I go to the LBS for something so stupid?
