My nephew’s birthday was coming up and he had been pestering me to get him a cycle for his birthday. I decided to get it for him after researching every aspect of a cycle. I went to a few cycle-shops but not one of the cycles appealed to me. After having my fair share of tiredness after checking out cycles at shops, I decided to be smarter and search online. Even the search results had names of many places. I did not want to go to a high-priced place and acquire frustration and therefore I started reading reviews of places. I remember comparing the reviews of a lot of places and the one place which stood out was Main Street Cyclery. I checked the website and it seemed subtle too. I decided to go and check the place as well as the cycles myself.

I went to the place on Sunday along with my nephew. He was so persistent that I had to tag him along. We reached the place around 1 P.M. The place was not at all how I had pictured it to be. There were cycles parked around and the moment this detail caught my nephew’s eye, he started strolling around and looking at them with fascination. The shopkeeper was not the jolliest. He told James not to touch anything. At first, it was apparent that he thought that we had just come to take a walk but when he realized that we were planning to buy one, his behaviour completely changed. The grim on him was replaced by a smile. He could not have been more convincing. He showed us around and told us all about the cycles and their types. It was quite transparent that he wanted to sell us one of the more expensive ones. He kept taking us to the electric cycle section. HE boasted about their performance as if he was the creator. He kept on focusing on the rechargeable feature of the cycle. After doing some thinking, I decided to purchase the electric cycle as it seemed quite a good option. My only concern was the safety of which I was assured by the shopkeeper. I was informed that the cycle would be delivered to my place in a few days.

As promised, the cycle was delivered to my place after three days. I gave it to James that very day and he could not have been happier. He rode it every day and the cycle seemed to be worth the big bucks. However, this happiness did not last long. The cycle started showing signs of trouble. It did not charge properly and there were other issues as well. When I called the place up, they denied my request for checking the cycle and getting it fixed. I realized my mistake but sadly, it was too late.

It was not my fault that I went to Main Street Cyclery but it would be yours if you go there to buy a cycle even after reading this.
