Chad recently built a bike for me from the frame up. Many of the components came from another bike. He was extremely helpful in evaluating what I had and suggesting what needed to be replaced. He meticulously cleaned the used parts and assembled the bike to be as close to corrosion proof as possible. I gave him measurements from a previous fitting and the bike was ready to ride. He’s a good listener and a great source of information. We’re lucky to have him in Old Fort!

Chad is amazing! Incredibly knowledgeable and thorough bike mechanic, always goes above and beyond to make sure my bikes are in great shape and always helpful beyond what most shops would do. He’s great with e-bikes as well which is awesome since I own 4. Super friendly guy, great shop!

It's a real joy to watch Chad work with customers. He takes the time to get to know folks as people first...and it's crazy how he remembers everyone's stories! When it's time to focus on the bike, he is super thorough and makes sure everyone understands what it will take to make things right. The bikes come out of the shop working as they should and his work is guaranteed. Top notch!!!
