Bicycle Service


30 per session - - Posted Jan 02, 2017

Not everyone knows that bicycles need maintenance. Not everyone knows how to completely and safely assemble a bicycle from a box. Maybe your child's bike doesn't seem quite right. Whatever the reason is you may need to visit a shop, you may not have the time, money, or desire to do so. I love to work on bikes. It's a simple pleasure of working with my hands to improve the ride of someone who loves their bike. I understand not everyone can afford the full service of a shop and so here I can offer my skills to those who need it. I'm currently offering the following services:

Bicycle Bath (typically a 2 session process)
--Wash, dry, lubricate, polish
--Basic Tune Up

Basic Tune Up
--Gear adjustments
--Brake adjustments
--Check chain wear
--Tighten wheel hubs if necessary
--Frame wipe down
--Lubricate all moving parts

Parts replacement (you provide parts)
--Recommendations and compatibility conversations needed

Safety Assessment
--New bike from Amazon came in a box and you want me to double check it's safety.
--Fell on a ride and worried about damage
--Backed over a child's bike

Bicycle Assembly

Sessions are in 30 minute blocks. Turn around should be one day at this point, if not same day.
What I can't do currently are full wheel trues, spoke replacement, bottom bracket replacement, and a few other things that require expensive tools and stations found in shops. What I can do is recommend good shops near you to get those services managed.

Training & Qualifications

I'm an avid cyclist and I've been working in the industry for more than two years. Currently an intermediate level mechanic and sales associate at a bicycle shop.

Availability & Preferences

All mornings until 9am, evenings after 7.
Monday's and Saturday's are my days off.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Matthew Hatton

Hello! I'm Matt, and I appreciate you getting to know me a little. I'm an avid cyclist both on and off the road. I'm more into the adventure and exploration aspect of the sport rather than the competi...tion. I also really enjoy the mechanical nature of bikes, and get a kick out of getting a friends old bike fun to ride again. I'm more than just a cyclist though. I'm a human. As a human there are a great many things that interest me, and to list them would likely bore you. So instead, I'll give a few sentences that I think sum up me succinctly. I want to have an impact on the world. I don't know yet what form that will take, only that it's important to me and regularly on my mind. I believe in a plant-based diet, and a lifestyle that works -for- you, not against you. I believe in grounding, or earthing. I believe that humans are capable of tremendous things and we're responsible for holding our own selves back. Silly us. Most cheesily (except don't actually eat cheese) I believe love could save the more
