Your bike is dead. Don't cry or yell at me

Missing the bike shop/lulz thread. There were some gems in there.

Apparently, FSA SLK Light bb386 cranks don’t fit 99.9% of eyetalian bottom brackets. The only ones they do fit are some oddball Pinarello.

What do you do when you have the bb, crank, and a Merckx? File it.

So many questions!
What do all of those buttons do that could be displayed on that screen?!
Especially what does the blank one do?!?

Don’t push that button.

Beautiful. Why does everyone think old shit is valuable? Sometimes it’s just old shit.

The new battery probably added substantially to the value of the computer.

I run a non-profit shop, we see shit like that all the time. It goes straight into the trash.

I feel like most shops are non profit whether they know it or not.

It’s Saturday afternoon, no you cannot personally put your seized seatpost in my bench vise to “see if it will come out”.

Becky, after me trying to politely explain that I just don’t have time to dig into a problem like that right now, and with plenty of snark: “We’ll try somewhere else!”

Me: “Good Luck!”

Me: shaking my head mouth the word ‘no’

Why is this so hard a concept?

Because we’re in a profession that will never be respected ‘because they’re just bikes’.
