Your Local Bike Shop strives to make your online shopping experience worthwhile. We take great pride in offering the latest and greatest bike parts at fair prices and timely delivery. In order to fairly describe our inventory, we have come up with a simple rating system. All items for sale are rated in the following categories.
Item Condition: If the item is not new, the condition will be rated on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being exactly like new and 1 being very used.
WOW Factor: If this is an item that will impress your friends and members of the opposite sex, the WOW factor is a 10. If it is a little out-of-date, the WOW factor might slip down to 5. We will try our hardest not list anything below a 5. (You can swap the word WOW with Bling.)
Package Condition: If the packaging is current, and in mint condition, it will get a 10. If it is current, and a little beat up, then the rating is 7. If it is an old style in mint condition, a 7. If it is an old style of packaging and wrinkled, tattered, or otherwise trashed, then the Package Condition rating can drop to 1-2.
Product Usefulness: We ride what we sell. If in our expert opinion, it is a part that fulfills is designed purpose without any qulams, we give it a 10. If it works, but needs improvement, the part might get a 7. If it does not do what it is supposed to, well, we give a low number.
