Since 2003, after 12 years of running a bike shop, I’ve been doing this RogueMechanic thing. Making adjustments seemingly on the fly based on local and global market changes because that’s what you do when you are in business. Even though there has been major changes in the cycling industry since I had my shop, one thing has not changed; the need for high quality repairs and custom builds done with precision and integrity. This is what I strive to do. I am not a mobile bike repair business, but I do pick up and deliver your bike back to you when I am done. I am not trying to reinvent the wheel here nor am I looking for validation. In an industry that embraces entitlement and poor business practices, I tore up my Mutual Admiration Society Card a long time ago. I give credit where credit is due and if I am pushed far enough, I will be critical when necessary. I embrace the old school mantra of “do what you say and say what you mean.” Additionally, I wholeheartedly believe that trust is earned, not assumed. All of this being said, I cannot put to words how grateful I am for the business that I receive and the trust that is bestowed on me.
To carry on the tradition of craftsmanship. Take the high road. Adhere to the Golden Rule.
