Bicycle Repair & Maintenance
I will service your bicycle, regardless of the sort of bike you have: commuter/fixie, road, mountain, hybrid, et cetera. I can do repair or parts replacement, and maintenance (e.g. brake adjustment, derailleur adjustment, bottom bracket cleaning, wheel trueing, et cetera). I'm willing to travel if you'd like me to come to you (so long as you're reasonably local, i.e. in the New York City area), but if you'd prefer to drop off and pick up your steed at my residence, that's alright, too. If you have a bike in need of extensive work, or if you simply don't know what's wrong with your bike and would like someone knowledgeable to diagnose and remedy its ailments, I'm willing to negotiate more involved projects. I have my own tools for most fixes, but I personally don't own any highly specialized tools for more complex fixes. I cannot provide parts if you need something replaced, but I'm more than capable of providing labor. Most fixes can be done in an hour or less.
Training & Qualifications
I am a bicycle mechanic of three years who has worked extensively with mountain bikes, but as a city-based bicycle commuter myself, I work frequently on my own bike, which is a touring/mountain hybrid.
Availability & Preferences
I'm usually free on weekends.
