Just wondering what the general consensus is on a mobile bike mechanic?
Would anyone use one if prices were reasonable and competetive with the LBS. Taking into account that the mechanic would have to be trained to a very competent level with a recognised qualification.
Has anyone used one before and what was the service like?
Also would Calderdale be a good catchment area for one?
Mobile bike mechanics
One of my riding buddies is a mobile bike nechanic. His main business is putting together bling bike builds for wealthy roadies/MTBers down here in Surrey, rather than just simple repairs/service. Which makes sense from a business point of view. He also does a lot of service for roadie sportive events.
Basically having an affluent customer base sounds like a good start!
There is a mobile bike mechanic round my local area (round chorley way). They seem to do a good job and have been in business since 2004 so obviously must be making enough for it to stay in business.
They are priced competitively and come round and will either do the job there and then if its an easy job or take it away in the van and come return it if its a larger job.
