The basic tune-up plus unboxing and assembling the bike.
This is a 1985 Haro Freestyler that I put together for a customer. Note the platform and front "pedals" for doing tricks.
About JJ's Mobile Bicycle Repair:
No need to haul your bike to the bike shop! Tune-ups done on the spot.
I will drive anywhere in Austin and surroundng areas to repair a bicycle, including Round Rock, Pflugerville, Buda, and other areas. I have my own portable bike stand and tools. I can do a full tune-up(including adjusting derailleurs, brakes, hubs, headset, cleaning and lubing the drivetrain, minor truing of wheels) and other repairs such as chain replacement, replacing cable housings and cables, etc.. Let me know what you need!
I have been a bicycle mechanic since 2001, previously working at Gregg's Greenlake Cycle and Recycled Cycles in Seattle and South Salem Cycleworks in Salem. My love of bicycles started when I was 6 with my first bike, a black Schwinn Stingray. I later got into mountain biking, worked as a bike messenger in Seattle, then became a bicycle assembler and finally a bicycle mechanic.
I'm happy to explain what I'm doing while working on your bike and enjoy educating customers on bicycle maintenance. Feel free to hang out and ask questions!

QUOTES FROM CUSTOMERS:
Here are some quotes from customers on Yelp:
"Service was just like taking it to a bike pro in town, but 1/2 the cost, and I didn't have to bug a friend with a truck for a ride. All in all a great experience, just got back from my first ride :)" -Eric W., Austin
"After watching his skill and his willingness to explain what he was doing and how, I felt very much at ease with his expertise. He pretty much disassembled the bike, cleaned and lubricated everything then reassembled it. All done with meticulous care while explaining why he was performing the specific maintenance.
The bike looks and rides like what I presume it did when new. I highly recommend Jason to anyone in need of bike maintenance or repair."-Al D., Pflugerville
"JJ came to my condo to put my bike together and tune. He showed up on time, was professional and did a great job. Very pleased with the outcome." -Brandon C., Austin
"Excellent Service. Great bike repair. Super friendly and very knowledgeable. Did the job well." -Richard G., Georgetown
"He did a great job returning her old classic to riding form. Rates were more than reasonable. Looking forward to calling him back for future maintenance and/or annual tune-ups."-Casey W., Austin
"He answered my phone call promptly, made an appointment time for the next day,
came on time, gave my bike a good tune up and assembled a new one we had bought
off amazon. He was great and did a great job." -Kim G., Austin
"Wow! Jason was awesome! Gave both of our bikes tune ups and washed them. Everything took about an hour and was really affordable. He communicated with us beforehand because I wasn't sure if our bikes needed new tubes. He knew everything and was super knowledgable about all aspects of the bikes and their maintenance. Super friendly, super nice, excellent service." -Erik M., Austin
Jason came to my office for 2 full days and tuned up most of the bikes in our bike room; people had noticeably better/safer rides. Jason brought all his own equipment, went directly to work, and was terrific to work with! He even "happened to have" the right tubes to fix a few flats. If you have a bike or a room of bikes that needs a tune up - give this guy a call." -Rusty P., Austin
"I called Jason out to my house in Pflugerville to take a look at my two recumbent trikes. He did an excellent job and both trikes rode better than when we bought them, tuned by a different shop that specializes in trikes."-James S., Pflugerville
