By the time I got to my not regular bike shop I was only focusing on my most pressing need: tubes with 80mm stems. I walked in, was greeted by a friendly smile. We quickly found just what I needed. Maybe I had that iknowimforgettinsomething look on my face?
Do you need any lube?
It wasn’t scripted.
It was caring.
Yes!… I need levers.
Here you go, Pedro’s are the best.
He rang me up. I took 3 steps towards the door, thinking about how much I appreciate professionals.
I turned around.
I need tiny box of those press on patches.
He was back and ringing me up some Park Tool patches. Also, the best.
Just one dude helping another dude.
It’s not salesmanship.
