Cycle Gear in Bellingham

I just read on the Herald website that a Cycle Gear is opening in the old Plato's Closet on Meridian. They did not say when it was opening though.

Nice! I am not big fan of Cycle Gear but it will be great having another option for local parts!

Uh, I was a big fan of Cycle Gear pre-2009.

But, in keeping with the times, I guess the Pakistan-India-Chinese goods need a brick and mortar instead of just Alibaba.

I've been assured by many sources that the stuff they sell is British (just made in Indonesia, China, Vietnam or wherever its cheapest)...

Oh sweet. They usually have great deals on tires, will be nice to have another option. They will rake in the dough from Canadian shoppers alone.

I think you dropped this "/s"...

When last I looked, Cycle Gear had the highest price on tires.

They've always had good online sales on rubber in my experience. It's been a couple years since I've looked, maybe it's changed...

Are they going to locate their new store next to Harbor Freight?

Without exaggeration I have a bad story to tell about every single visit to Cycle Gear.

On two occasions I've overheard the store clerks talking smack about a customer who was out of earshot.

On one occasion I found a single pair of Howard Leight MAX earplugs in a bin of some other brand, and when I showed it to the clerk and asked if there were any more he looked at it and snarled "I don't know where the hell that came from" and walked away from me.

At this point I'd decided never to go there again, but on two other occasions I went anyway because what I needed I had I had actually seen on the shelves there ... only to find that they no longer carried it; margin too low one supposes. On one of those occasions the clerk in all seriousness suggested I go to their Vancouver store because it might still have some. He didn't however offer to phone them. The place is just fucked up.
