Initially, I thought this was a really great bike shop. Now I am having second thoughts. I purchased a bike there about a year ago. A Bianchi to exact; the shop no longer carries the Bianchi line. Most likely because the profit is much lower than a Trek or another American road bike.

But, it remains under warranty and shouldn?t be an issue at all. As of about a month ago, I have been experiencing some noise coming from the bike when I am riding. I am the loudest bike on the road. I explained this problem to the owner and he thought it was the pedals or the bottom bracket. Ok, this person does this for a living and should have an interest in solving my problem.

So, I opted to have them clean and re-lubricated the bottom bracket. When picking up the bike; he said that the noise was much better. After, riding it home, I knew that the issue wasn?t solved. But, I wasn?t that spiteful because I had my bike cleaned up and maybe it was just a mistake or bad diagnosis. $50. I took it back and it was recommended that I get a new set of pedals, they were probably just worn out and needed to be replaced. $65. The noise remained and I took it back a third time and had the store keep it a few days, so they could ride it. Upon returning, I was told that it was no the bottom bracket, but, it was metal fatigue on the rails of the seat. Maybe a new seat would do it. $65.
My noise is still there and nothing has been recommended to solve it. They money is not the issue here it is the lack of concrete solutions that really bothers me.
