Fox Valley Cycles
I just have to give a shout out to the folks at Fox Valley Cycles on Hill Ave in Aurora. Every time I go in there they are friendly, helpful, and very reasonably priced. When the time comes to put a VFR800 in my garage, I will go there first.
For example...I bought a valve shim from a three letter acronym named dealer in Downers Grove. They charged me $12.50 for one shim which, as it turns out, is a scant 20% OVER RETAIL!
Today, I go in to Fox Valley Cycles to get two valve shims and they just swapped me the two I had for the two I needed. NO CHARGE!
Now they don't know me from anybody else, they just did it that way because that is how they are. I can only hope that as my business grows and one day takes on employees, that we will take care of customers the way these guys do.
Just my $.02
