dude you cant be that mad. most bike shops dont specialize in bmx. they do mostly road,mountain,and cruisers. so a 22mm mid bb isnt going to be easy to find at a shop unless its a bmx shop.

no whats bad is when your buddy asks for a new set of brake pads for his "BMX BIKE" and the guy grabs a set of pads that have little buttons on them so that they will light up when you pull your brakes. AS your staring at a set of odysseys on the wall behind him

This. My bike shop is the exact same thing (with a decent amount of "BMX" parts) and plus the dudes over there are awesome and they let me use anything and one time they gave me little parts I was desperate for free. I'm just a little eerie because his wife always bitches at him when they let me use the tools//

11/30/2011 9:35 PM

Love my local shop, they have given me free crank spacers, free profile sprocket bolt, they have retaped my profile cranks for free and hook me up with good deals along with letting me use there tools whenever needed. Grreat guys over there at the yucaipa bike shop.

i used to love this one shop by me when this dude aaron worked there. he'd give me free shit, work on my bike for free, true my wheels for free. they could get what ever i needed and it was just a fun place to chill. then aaron got in a fight with the asshole boss and got fired and after that it went to shit. none of the cool guys are there anymore and they just have dumbasses there. only cool guy left is andy martinez (rides for mutiny) he gave me a brand new headset

12/1/2011 8:34 AM

Lol I can picture some of the complainers here laughing their ass off at the idea of a road biker bitching about lack of parts/staff support for their road bike issue when they were trying to get assistance at, say...Albes? Two way street, get to a shop that does BMX and you'll probably be fine, if they still suck, don't give them your business.

I have four lbs's within easy riding distance.Unless I want a low end Redline complete,it's fire up the laptop and pull out the credit card.
Shops have to cater to what's popular.For every bmx bike I see around,I see twenty mtbs.Guess what the local shops have?The profit margin is way lower with bmx than other types of bikes.
Most non chain shops cant compete with mail order prices.Even with shipping,it cost less to get it from Dan's.
There is a shop here in Olympia that has hardly any inventory other than tubes,tools ect.They will be the first to tell you that over 80% of their biz is labor.

my closest bmx shop is about 12 miles away, i really wish my other bike shops were atleast a little bmx, they are all mountain bike shops and they are still a town over, so i cant ride my bike to one at all -_-

I call it the Wal-Mart mentality. Every store should have anything and everything you could possibly need. I feel for riders that don't have a bmx only or a shop that does bmx and other bikes because I'm in that situation myself. Two shops in my whole town and both do nothing but road, MTB, and hybrids. They have some bmx completes, but not a single aftermarket part in stock. I see it as my cue to open up a shop and plan on doing so.
