Haha, made me laugh.
Working in the shop I never heard it, but my wife has had clitoris 'roughing-up' while on the bike for long rides.
In the end she solved it herself, switching to Specialized's high-end women's BG saddles, and now recommends them left and right to every female cyclist she knows.

Needless to say, a happy clitoris makes for a happy woman and a happy husband :D

Thank you Specialized :thumbup:

I'm enjoying the elitism within boutique bike shops :mrgreen:

LBS: "We only build high end custom bikes with high end components, Athena 11 is rubbish and entry level"
Me: Does not comment on all the custom bikes equipped with Miche, Centaur, and Veloce built for MDs waiting to be collected..

LBS: "We are a high end shop and only sell high end wheels, not cheap Shimano RS-80 wheels"
Me: Does not comment on the Tiagra builds, Aksiums, random mountain bikes on display...

"You can go faster on a 29", it's just better" :roll:

And the worst part is that they actually expect you to believe them. :shock:

Me: Do you have Shimano Special Grease SP41?
Store: No. Why?
Me: To reduce internal cable friction.
Store: What's that?
Me: Never mind.

Indeed, ductape does! WD40 is a cleaning agent. it sucks for bike maintenance. In fact, it sucks for almost everything.

You never had Scalextric as a kid then? Tried all the lubes and I assure you WD40 was the dogs, just a drop before each use!

Me: Have you got a nine speed chain, I'm converting the daughters bike
LBS: To nine speed?
Me: Kinda, it's only a 7 speed freehub so I'm using 8 of the 9 speeds off a SRAM cassette with a 9 speed shifter
LBS: If it's 8 speed you need an 8 speed chain
Me: No, its a nine speed cassette with one gear missing, so it has the same spacing as any other 9 speed cassette, I need a 9 speed chain
LBS: If it's 8 speed you need an 8 speed chain
Me: I assure you I need a nine, however it will be my fault if it's wrong, so can I take that one (points)......
LBS: If it's 8 speed you need an 8 speed chain (damn this records stuck)
Me: I'll go down the road.....yes this donut lost a sale when the next LBS was only 400 yards away!

Yes the bike works great....on a 9 speed chain, just wished I hadn't told him what I was doing and said yes to the 9 speed question!

Said Daughter works in Bikehut so I now expect suitable abuse!

That's exactly what you need to remember when you know what you are doing and buying something at the LBS.

You're right of course, but its my favoured LBS (I'm spoilt, I have 3 good local ones) and I expected better, next time I went back and talked to one of the regular members of staff he told me the guy only lasted a week......now I have my favoured member of staff's mobile (cell) number so can check he's in before I pop in!

While shopping for a first road bike a few years ago, I asked if the bike in question could be ordered with a compact crank. He carefully explained to me that this bike was a compact because a compact crank has 2 chain rings and a standard crank has 3. The same guy was adamant that I would need a 56 or 58cm frame. I'm 5'6", currently riding a 51.
