My OPINION about that place is i would NEVER let them look at my bike.
They Purposely screwed me on a tire (several) years back and i hold a grudge forever.

Here on the South West you have GrandPrixmotors, Precision Cycles..In my opinion these are the two places where they are more than far, and are extremely dependable. Some places are cheaper, but you have to ask yourself are you getting a shimmy shack mechanic?......Anyways these two are the best on this side of town to me......

:laughing6 that shop has served me pretty well. i've got two bikes there right now. one for valve job, carb synching and some other maintenance items getting ready to go on the market. the other for chain lube and adjustment, and front brake pad change. the rates are very good too. but it seems to be slow, especially if i'm too busy to go watch them being worked on.

a chain adjustment is not a tough task, whiteboy. if you're even somewhat mechanically minded you should be able to check the tension and adjust accordingly. the board is full of helpful people if you have questions, but try some research and you should be fine. :icon_smil
