It just needs adjustment and lubrication. A shop will probably be able to make it work better for less than $40.

most good shops will refuse to work on department store bikes--they can't guarantee their work on a bike of that quality.

refuse? maybe if it's way out of wack... the shop is where the money is made.

I worked as a wrench at quite a few shops and they all had policies against working on department store bikes, though some would fix flat tires. If something goes back out of whack ten minutes after you adjust it, it makes you look like a jerk. Sometimes I'd take pitty on people and fix 'em for free--you can't complain about a free repair. I never did the books so I'm not sure if the shop was "where the money is made." A lot of the work I did was free work/tuneups on bikes the shop had sold. But I hope they were making some money on those $50 tuneups that took me fifteen minutes...
did they pay you more than $200/hr?so

I guess they made money, eh?

From what I can tell you are one of those guys that always has to have the last word, right?

what was all that in English, esp Rusty's post?
rusty, I know you're not an ass, but perhaps don't use terms like idiot so much ... that will shut the people who DO think you're an ass up.
