    Well, Asheville certainly needs another bike shop. What is it that will set y'all apart?

    How about this, We dont have a 5K rent payment and no employees and very low overhead. So what we are selling is: at least a 15% discount, customer service for all types of riders (XC, DH, AM, Road Racing and Cyclocross). O yeah and Devinci bikes with a lifetime warranty

    How do you have great customer service with no employees?

    Do you have a store in Greenville now?

    No employees?

    There are shops in Asheville with a better plan. They have employees, but just don't pay them.

    I think he's referring to the him/owner running the shop with no help = no employees.

    Bingo, Owners only so helps keep our overhead low so the prices are better. We didnt have a store in Greenville, our race team was based out of GVL until we relocated here. We did have freeride park down towards Columbia about 3 years ago. Im not trying to SPAM this forum with stuff about the shop but we do need to get some riders on bikes in the area. So if your looking for a great deal and great customer service send me an email. matt@billygoatbikes.com

    What if it becomes the best shop in Asheville? What if they give you the best service and a bike at the best price? I dont know you or the guy opening the shop, but why take a dig on someone you know nothing about?

    Everyone has an opinion, Here is my promise: Come to our shop and give us a chance. We guarantee the lowest prices and the best customer service. The research supports another bike shop but we cant win everyone over

    Haven't taken my bikes to a LBS in two years. Owner/operator shops are the nuts. Best of luck.

    Because some people never have anything constructive to offer so they "take digs" in order to seek attention.
    They sit behind keyboards taking crap but usually keep their mouth shut when confronted in person.

    Any way you look at it, competition is always good even if there is no need for another shop.
    It breeds better service and possibly better prices and the consumers will always benefit from it.

    rocketmatt, good luck with the new shop.

    A lot of people work on their own bikes but they still need and want parts. What if you could buy parts at pricepoint prices but from your local bike shop. Thanks for your support too

    Sjanes is obviously part of a much larger conspiracy to get kids into mountain biking to turn them into paying adults which will then feed the other bike shops in WNC. Could he be a an agent for the WNC Bicycle Shop Assoc? He is obviously evil and doing all this for his evil agenda. I blame it all on evil. But he seems to be doing a great job.


    (Of course he is the antithesis of the above post.)
    He/she who works the trails does so in their own image.

    Speed just slows me down...

    Unfortunately that is true with just about anything in life.
    There will always be people that will try and bring you down to their level instead of encouraging you.

    Just think how much better the world be if it wasn't for the naysayers.

    I don't know what an Antithesis is, but it sounds evil.
