    Paste: “You got mud on your frame. You want I should…”

    Spending more money on it balances out how much you actually use it.

    If the blowout was really bad he could need new tires.

    A person who knows his/her stuff will try to keep the customer from purchasing unnecessary items. Good places that value the customer would prefer to sell you exactly what you need and get the repeat business then sell you what you don’t need and charge a ton for it. These type rely on a lot of one time business and people who have more money than they know what to do with.

    This is correct, however Paste did try to tell him what he needed and what he didn’t need. He didn’t buy it. Either give him what he asks for or he’ll take his business elsewhere. After all, “The customer is always right, no matter how stupid he is.”

    To be fair, I’ve spent a lot of time patching tubes as a child and sometimes watching freshly patched tubes as a child. If I took up cycling as an adult I’d be tempted to replace leaky innertubes.

    Anyone here ever read “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance”? Author talks about something similar when he’s asked by a friend to tighten up a loose handlebar. Author says that all he needs to do is add some shim. Friend is ecstatic at having something so exotic-sounding put on his upscale motorcycle, until the author tells him that in this case, shim is a strip cut out of an aluminum beer can.
