    Well put plume. And that is exactly what we want to be the main difference in our shop and others. Good service, good prices and fast turnaround. We do plan to stock the carbon Dixon models. May be a few months I am hearing from Devinci. All others including some Norco bikes will be on the floor at some point as well. Thanks. See you soon.

    So, very close to Crowne Plaza?

    Yeh man just down the hill. Went by there the other day and bought some tires for my daughters Mtn bike. They ordered some 20' tires for me and had them in quick. Kenda nevegals. Turn off Patton like your going into the Denny's parking lot and pass it and its there on the right.

    Dixon is a sweet looking ride. If I hadn't just built a yeti I'd be interested. Might be single if I went that route! Hahaha

    Yep, that would be Harvey. When he owned Backcountry he always had some year(s) old great deals and stocked the all current year components and "must haves". A great mix that is sorely missed in our area. Some of us have to spend our money on rent and groceries!

    Uhm, you could make $500 profit in 1 day of serving beer.

    Properly poured there is 124 16oz beers in a 1/2 barrel keg (that is the large one)
    Cost of a keg depending on what you get averages around $75
    That is a cost of about $.60 per glass.
    Sell 124 beers at $5 per glass you will make your $500 off the first keg
    Have a lot of spillage and only get 100 glasses at a price of $3.50 per glass and you will make $500 in the first 2 kegs.

    Bottle and can profit margin is a little less at about $1-$2 per bottle/can

    Any way you cut it, I guarantee places like the Hub makes their permit fees in a single day.

    You can also be different and serve wine since the same permit that covers beer covers the sale of wine. Many of the women cyclists (and some men) prefer wine over beer.

    Another reason to do it is online shops can't serve beer and wine.

    You should give the address. Most people have GPS and everyone has map quest or google maps. People who don't live in Asheville or know the area may not get the driving instructions.

    I am familiar with the area, just giving advice that makes it easier for other people to find.
    Including the address with the description would ensure they could find it.

    It used to kill me when I was a contractor, I would ask for somebodies address and have to listen them try to explain how to get to their house for 5 minutes when I asked for was the address so I could punch it in the GPS.

    Keg math is off dude. Only keg you are gonna get for $75 is pbr, bud, etc. Craft beer will be upwards of $130 on average and your average pint cost with 7% waste factored in will be anywhere from $1.13-$1.18 per pint. You always factor waste in as it gives you a buffer for your costs and covers some giveaways, spillage, foam beer, etc

    That said the guys at Billy Goat are awesome and helped me out a few weeks ago. Looking forward to giving them some future business as well and wish em the best of luck

    I cannot express to you how cheap that permit is! Make a phone call to liquor control in Massachusetts...tell them you are a bike shop that wants to sell beer....when they get done laughing...ask them what the permit would cost....pick your jaw up off the floor....and then be happy you only pay $500 in Asheville. Depending on the city/town you could be looking at thousands...if not $10K.

    Yeah, I am aware that craft beers are a little more but we are still talking huge profits when it sells.
    OK, so the keg costs an extra $50 or even $75.
    Regardless he will still have the permit paid off with the first two kegs.

    I also understand that there is additional costs in equipment starting at $1k for good kegerators but that could easily be paid off soon also.

    Sure, if they take the profits from the bike shop and split 'em.

    If I had a bike shop, a $500 permit fee would not stop me from serving beer.

    Gotta use the streets to get places. Do you have any other suggestions?

    Sounds like you have a fantasy. Please don't include me in it.
