Is there such thing as a mobile bike mechanic?
I ride each day, so being without my bike is a pain. I struggle to get it to the shops Mon-Fri because of my work - and then I need to catch the bus home and then struggle to pick it up again. I can't take the bike to the shops on the back of my car because it's too long!
I just need the gears adjusted, I've been trying (looked it up on YouTube), but the back derailer leaps about on 3rd. I've managed to make it worse now!!
I think this might be the same Gavin who is now resident mechanic at Avanti Parafield so I'm guessing he's no longer mobile.
I've often thought about doing this kind of thing. If there were enough of a market I'd still consider it.
do you work in the city?
Gavin still has his mobile van, just give him or or one of his boys a call at Avanti Plus Salisbury on 82588885.
Thanks Ethan, I'll give a ring tomorrow.
Mind you, I'm probably best waiting a few weeks for the TDU to pass...I'm not in any great hurry.
Good to book ahead though.
Shaun Caire is the only mobile one I know of and he comes highly recommended. I actually saw him today at the stage finish. great guy.
I saw Gavin at the TDU village, he's not currently doing mobile service due to being very busy at the shop and training for a big event, he will probably start mobile service again in March. Sounds like Bio Mechanics might be the best option.
I did hear that Will Dickeson has started a bike servicing business
You need to be in a total state of inner peace when ever you look at your derailliers, let alone touch them. Persevere, learn how to work on them, dispell the mystery, take control, know your bike, save money, it will be worth it.
