Hopefully Andy Schleck doesn’t shop at Mike’s Bikes.
I’ve actually shopped at this chain of bike shops quite a few times – the one here in Sacramento is actually quite nice with a great, friendly staff. So I decided to check out the merchandise that they had on their website trying to show my daughter some of the options available for her Single Speed project.
Unfortunately, my window browsing excursion was shortened when I ran across this monstrosity of an ad on the Mike’s Bikes website:
OK. So I guess this is supposed to be somehow funny? I just don’t get the joke myself. So, what – if Andy had gotten a proper tuneup from Mike’s Bikes then he wouldn’t have dropped his chain and may have won the Tour de France? Is that the implication?
Sorry, Mr. Mike (if that is your real name) but think what you want about the chain incident in the Tour de France, no one but you is implying that it was due to a faulty tune up.
I’m looking for my daughter’s wheels somewhere else now!
