Most Important Information You Would Like a Service Customer to Know: Be aware of the noise coming from your bike. A well maintained, cleaned and properly lubricated bike is safe and quiet. Before every ride check your wheel quick release levers are secured properly.

Tell Us About Yourself: I have spent my entire life working with my hands, I started working in my local bike shop at 14. Then spent 10 years as an aircraft airframe technician, and the last 10 as a bike mechanic and bike fitter. I am passionate about bikes and have an obsessive attention to detail when it comes to bike repair, maintenance and fitting.
