Jimrad is the bike doctor! He makes brackets from nothing, makes tools, showed me how to mount and balance tires. No wonder he is the Prez!

Jimmy that's pretty slick. I come up with half assed, improvised solutions for a living and I must say I'm impressed.

It was probably faster for Jimmy to come up with that idea and create it, than dialing the 10 digits and getting mine.
