Joel.....please don't mistake my harsh vitriol for a lack of respect for you....I've not met you......so what I'm about to say is not reflective of my respect to you in the meat spaces. However, in the fake-spaces, I call Bull$hit. Don't piss on my back and tell me it's raining....you're a shill for PBS and to say otherwise is crap. I was a sales manager there....and I left on good terms with the DM.....so don't think you can pull the cheep St. Paddy's day jersey from last season that's still on your racks, over my eyes.....I don't like shills....and you're a shill as proved by your words and your past posts....you've shill'd here before. In this most recent post, you're clearly advertising prices and product for PBS against policy......there....I'm throwing the red flag. If I as an individual am expected to pay MTBR to advertise on this forum that I'm SELLING MY 2009 Pivot Mach 5 with XTR bits and crank, Thompson stem and seat post, size medium and Chris King Hubs and Headset and Stans Flow wheels for $1000....this is the bike known as, LaFawnduh..... I have to pay MTBR for it. So you as a shill for PBS, a corporation that makes a little more than I do as an individual, should have to pay its fair share as well. I'm sorry if you're trying to "Make the Day"....but you'll have to make it by selling bikes.
It's obvious you only come on here once in a while to plug the biz.....fine....if you said up front that was the case, I would not care......I have plenty of friends who also run bike biz's around here and they occasionally plug some community oriented gathering....and that's ok.......but I've seen you deny that you have an interest in PBS in the past as you are now.....and that's what gets me boiling.....because your ownership exhibited in your response proves otherwise. On top of it.....PBS want's to encourage their shops to support community....but gives them ZERO leeway in supporting community events and winds up doing nothing....it's a shell game they put up in picture form only on their "community board" so they can squeeze every last bit of "Authority" out of the pocketbooks from those looking to buy a bike for the first time. And it's that shell game I see in your post....it's a pathetic excuse for just trying to bring more business to PBS without providing ANY value whatsoever. Meanwhile....other shops in the valley are spending dollars and time to really get involved in community events.....you know where I'm going with this...I don't need to offer proof....and if you're obtuse enough to ask just where this proof is....well.....things are going to get real silly for you....real fast.
So I'm going to use this opportunity of mutual destruction to prove a point....you remove your shilly post for PBS and their Garmin products which I'm sure are quite fine and are always in some form of sale...and I'll remove my silly heavy-handed vitriol that states in no uncertain terms that I'm selling my SIZE MEDIUM PIVOT, 2009......MACH5....XTR bits and Crank, Chris King headset and Hubs....Stans Flow Rims....for $1000 bucks......call me....maybe....PM me.....SRSLY!!!!!!
