He is twice divorced

He has a tatoo of a tiny penis on his armpit. If you buy a bike, he will show it to you.

Ted is a genuinely nice man, I know him personally and have dinner with him. Yes, for those of you who don't know him he may come off a little bit like a jerk. But he's a frat boy, and that's the way he is and you're all just sensitive north country pippies who can't loosen up a bit. you can't expect to walk into his business with your 100 dollar walmart bike and expect he wants to spend his time on it when it's more efficient to just buy another one entirely. Suck it up a bit and understand he's going to give it to you like it is

$100.00 walmart bike? surely you jest? you must be as big a pompous and arrogant ass as ted is. thus you fit in well together.not everyone prefers to be treated like sidewalk gum in a rude and condescending manner. more power to you if you like his attitude but its pretty obvious the majority of posts on here voice the same opinion. the man is an ass and full of himself. case closed.also odds are high you are a man because most women don;t like men who behave like ted.

Must be one of the elitist dinners they get together for every week where they gossip and talk smack about the peons in town. No wonder you get along fine with him and don't mind his condescending attitude! You yourself made judgmental statements. How any one can make excuses for the man is beyond me! It's about doing business and offering customer service, not being your full douche self just because you can.

Was he always like this? He is missing out on a large part of life the way he talks to people. Sad.

His shop was empty when I drove by last week. Did he relocate?

The shop is still full of bikes... you might be thinking of the storefront next door which the Party Store recently vacated.

I went there back in 1990. Don't remember any rudeness, although, I was a teenager.

You are right. The shop next door is the empty one. I need to stop smoking crack when I drive.

My neighbor asked me to help her find a comfort bike to replace her ancient 40 pound Schwinn. I know Ted has a bike to suit her but cannot bring myself to walk in his store.

"Where on Earth" up the street has the perfect bike that will suit her.

Don't blame Wal-Mart Ted.

Actually I'm a 16 year old kid. And what is it to you that he acts the way he does? Are you personally offended by his actions? Do you really actually care about it? Or are you just conforming to what the majority of the north country pricks have to say

OK, so you are a 16-year old kid who doesn't know any better to treat people with respect apparently. I hate to see what sort of parent/person you'll grow up to be with someone like Ted as a role model! Does Mommy know you are playing on Topix? Obviously people are offended by his attitude or there wouldn't be comment after comment saying pretty much the exact same thing. You really think people are such gophers and have such a negative opinion just because others do?

And I highly doubt he is that good of a cook. Great cooking comes with compassion and soul, things that he is obviously lacking considering how he treats others and his rude comments that are constantly being quoted in the papers.

No sadly you're wrong. Assuming you're probably an adult in your late 30's to mid 40's, obviously you don't know any better because you spend your time on this website going on about shit that isn't even important. And to say you doubt he's a good cook because he comes off as rude? Obtain a sense of humor and stop being such a prick. I don't give a damn if you're older than me by a long shot. Do something more productive rather than write about how much of an apparent asshole Ted is.

Another place to buy a good comfort bike is Fredericks in Malone. The owner is friendly and knowledgeable.

I Recently bought a bicycle from this shop I'm certainly disappointed in myself for buying anything here for $500 I got a bicycle that I don't think it meets my needs - I was basically told that this is a fantastic bicycle that met my needs without any questioning. Before I knew it I made a spur of the moment decision & bought the bike. I have taken it back and have it adjusted.
I don't like this bike and find it no easier to ride than my old Huffy!
Each time I have been insulted and berated about the other bicycles that we currently own !my husband was in the shop four years ago and got the same spiel about the Walmart bike. I was in yesterday he was giving a man a hard time about a Walmart bike !!! what the hell was I thinking next time go to Crow bicycles in Ogdensburg they have a young staff and they spend a lot of time with you- their prices are better- I am bummed out I spent over $600 here and I must be moron.
MThis $500 bike runs just like mybicycle.

I asked Ted if he could teach me how to ride a bicycle and he called me a mean name as he threw me out the door. I will never go back...
