Thank you for that, sir. I was beginning to think that I was the only person still thinking that way.
No you weren't, your post made reference to both service and product (as I thought did tonyf33's). I picked up on the product side of things but your point about service still stands. Whether the two are connected is a moot point - I would expect much better service and politeness, erudition even, from someone selling touring bikes than someone selling MTBs.
