I knew someone that used duct tape on a lugged touring bike that cracked at the lug. Worked for the rest of the tour. :-)

Shoot, I used duct tape on blown out sidewall once.

That repair was two weeks into me owning the bike. All 8000 miles were on it.

holy f---! I hate dealing with bike shops. It's been sitting in their shop for a week (after I stripped it completely bare) and they are charging me $100 shipping and labor. The original shop folded last fall so this is the new moots dealer. Funny enough, most of the employees at this new shop are from the other shop. It would not surprise me if moots charges some labor for this or wants $$ toward a replacement. But don't know cuz they haven't seen the effin frame yet!!

They have a ton of new bikes on the show floor (and hanging from the ceiling), over 200, I would guess. A lot are 105 equipped Colnagos and a bunch of Norcos for the trails. Expecting a busy spring by the looks of it.

$100 for shipping and labor?!?!?

Seriously...tell them to solve it up their ass and ship it yourself. Then call Moots and tell them the local dealer sucks squirell balls and you won't support them.

That is outrageous.

what CK said, the cost on that frame to ship is maybe 30 bucks? And labor? Seriously? The bike is already torn down, labor to wrap some bubble wrap around the fame, pack it in a box you already have, wtf?
If you feel like you are getting the run around, go direct............if it's been sitting for a week, screw that, that is a 15 minute job, are they so busy this Feb. they could not get to it yet?

105 Colnagos, and Norcos....that is funny, you can pick up a 105 Colnago for about 1400.00 bucks right now, the market is full of those things, and the only Norco bikes I have ever seen were in a Motorcycle shop.

Is that the one right on the bike path, not far from the Town Center? If so, I was in there earlier this summer.....wasn't terribly impressed.

Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Yeah, that's the one. I tried working with their wheel builder this fall and he couldn't get his shyt together so I ended up working with a shop in Seattle.

Yeah, went in looking for a simple pair of socks so I could go running (had forgotten to pack mine)....piss-poor selection and had to get a pair that were too small.

Everything else kinda looked like schitt, as well.....but a nice selection fo rain gear, I guess.

No one talked to me the whole time I was in there....

I'd ship it from work. The bulk discount makes shipping silly cheap.
