I wanted to make a quick plug here. With the price of gas being what it is, and the weather starting to get a bit warmer, Melissa and I have decided to try to ride our bikes as much as we can, and to save the car for longer trips. The issue has been that the bikes were in desperate need of some TLC.
We got Ben Wyse to come and check them out. Ben owns his own bicycle mechanic buisness called Wyse Cycles. What makes his buisness unique is that he comes to you, riding his bike and towing all his tools in a little trailer. He set up shop in a sunny spot on the side of the road, put our bikes up on his stand, and got to work.
And did an amazing job. Melissa’s ancient road bike is about three times the bike it was before, and my mountain bike as a whole new lease on life. He is fair, friendly, and fast, and it is obvious he loves what he does.
If you’re in the area, and your bike needs some love, I’d encourage you to give him a call. He doesn’t have a website yet, but you can get in touch with him at (540) 383-4119.
