uhm...i know of a shop that will hook it up on labor sometimes.
if youre spending $500 on other parts and services, maybe they dont worry about charging you labor on something little like installing frame sliders.

Its all about a positive business relationship.
Stubbs may get their money when the gouge you for everything they can on one visit, but you never go back.

On the other hand, a shop can not charge you for a few little things here and there, and sure enough you'll be calling them when you wanna spend a grand on your bike.


So yeah, some shops do give away parts and/or labor if it'll build a relationship and ensure future business.

An old customer service saying: Its much easier to keep a customer, than it is to go find a new one.

I'm not so sure I see what you're happy about. You're paying to get something on your bike fixed that should have been done under warranty in the first place.

Also, Discount Cycles isn't new at all. . . just a new building.
