WRONG BIKES ARE COSTLY. Riders buy new ones because they dislike the current one. Valuable cycling days are less enjoyed on them. It's the old adage rearing up again, "buy nice or buy twice". One of my favorite customers came in with her brand S touring bike to order a new titanium travel bike. "We bought these 5 years ago and wished we had bought custom bikes from you just about ever since". We bend over backwards every time she needs service on the bike.
