So after having purchased a roadie... a few weeks later I realized that I needed to verify my tire inflation. So I go and looked at my tires and guess what? They had some funky stem on the tube that didn't work with a traditional inflation nozzle. So I immediately went through my pumps 15 nozzle options and lo and behold not a single one of them was appropriate for inflating these tires. "THIS IS ANNOYING," was my immediate thought.
So the next day while at work, I call up Orange Cycle as they are a short 5 minute drive from my office if that. I then blurt out when asked how they can help, how the heck am I supposed to inflate a roadie's tires since they have such a funky tire stem.
The guy laugh's as I am sure this is a very common question and something that drives guys like me crazy. He immediately then tells me that they have an adapter piece for about $2 or $3 bucks (I cant remember the exact price right now argh!!!)
Pro Tip: This place is located on the Western side of Glassell one block south of the Orange Circle.
So when I get to the shop, I immediately ask for this wondrous adapter and a couple of the shop guys laugh. They were quite personable and gave me a couple of hints for how to use and store the adapter. They were quite helpful while trying to up sell me into some stuff that I had no need for.
I always expect the up sell at an independent bike shop like this. Overall the customer Service for me was good. The price was in-line with all the other shops that I have been to and or inquired about pricing through. Overall I was pretty pleased with my minor purchase that has become an indispensable part of my biking kit. I will be back here at some point to browse through stuff when I am bored at lunch I am sure.
