Complaint Review: Bicycles 101
Bicycles 1011537 8th Street Florence, Oregon United States of America
Bicycles 101, Tim Hewitt , scams your money. Florence, Oregon
*REBUTTAL Individual responds: Selfserving Ripp Off
*REBUTTAL Owner of company: banned from the store-- and others
*Author of original report: Bicycles 101
It looks to me like any of the reviews that are positive for
Bicycles 101 were written by the owner or current employee of the store. They
all read like a child writing an advertisement. Be very careful at this store
because after the owner has your bike he will charge you whatever he feels
like. Most times it is things you don't need at inflated prices. Reality is, no
real cyclist in the area or from the east coast that come here to ride Hwy 101
will go in Bicycles 101 because it is well known that they rip people off while
they demean them with personal questions that have nothing to do with bikes or
guitars. You should not have to tell them if you have a boy friend or not to
get service! I know because he bragged to me about how makes people explain their lives before he will work on their bike. There was a Radio Shack
here in town that treated people like trash, they are out. Bicycles 101 is
taking the same path. No one go's there!
I just found this old report and proof
is Tim's wife is out the door divorced because she likes women. She hit on me
every time I was in there. Wait so did her husband the owner! This store has no
friends left that cycle. They have insulted every customer that ever came in
the door. Half the time the owner smells like whiskey and his employees are pot
heads that cant even fix a flat because they are stoned while the stereo
blares in your face. I will be driving 50 miles to get repairs done at a
professional bike shop that doesn't fire employees once a month. Proof again.
Ask the owner how many employees he has had! I lost count when I stopped going
in that scam store 2 years ago. I think his name was Chris. Chris related this
story to me. Apparently he told the owner it looked bad when he groped and dry
humped his fat girlfriend in front of the store. When I went back a month later
Chris was long gone.
Too bad, he seemed like a nice guy. At least he didn't hit
on me and sell me a bike that is too big. By the way this store will not accept
returns. The owner deliberately sold me a bike that was too big for me and will
not let me return it. I was told I chose it, so I can keep it. I know it was
deliberate because Chris told me the owner just wanted to get rid of the bike
because it had been there 2 years. Hopefully someone will open a new Bike Shop
