Sundays in our bike shop are non-freaking-stop. We’re only open for four hours, and there’s hardly a second of down time during the 1pm-5pm window. As a shop guy, weekends are when we get our most traffic… which means we have more people that want to get on bikes, and we have to do our best to make that happen, for as many people as possible.
Today’s hustle included getting the following bikes matched to their new owners:
– Two Trek 3500’s for 12 year-old brothers
– An Electra Townie Original 7D for a gentleman who wants to ride the Doodle Trail
– A Trek Precaliber 24 for a 9 year-old who outgrew his 20″ bike, and LOVES the Viper Red color
– A Trek 8.4 DS and a Trek Neko SL for a couple who want to become enthusiasts, and want to have versatility to go different places
…and those were just the bikes I handled over the four hours we were there. It was a great day to pair excited people up with their new bikes. I’ve said it a hundred times… “It’s not a hard sell. I sell fun.”
I love my job.
