I am a 39 year old female who has been riding on and off since I was 8. I have my full licence, ride a DRZ250, and am currently trying to organise test rides for a new road bike. Over the last 12 months I have discovered that bikeshops around Sydney have no idea how to look after customers, amazingly enough I have been looking for a new bike for over a year, however a very bad experience with the business manager named Ben at Bikebiz Granville, as well as unreturned enquiries at Procycles Hornsby, Trooper Lus garage, and Team Moto in Blacktown, I have honestly given up. You would think that a cashed up female customer looking to buy a bike would get some attention. On the contrary it seems us girls are not a valued commodity. Oh well, looks like I will go hire some bikes to test ride and ensure my money stays clear of the shops.
