I’ve been riding for over 20 years and have worked in and around bike shops for 6+ years. For me there are three types of people who work on bikes
1. Bike builders – me
2. Part replacers/semi-mechanics
3. Do-anything Bike Mechanics.
It takes a considerable amount of dedication, experience, and passion for someone to make it to the 3rd level of full do-all Bike mechanic. Over the years, I have only met a small handful of people who are fully well rounded, experienced, and DO-all anything bike mechanics.
Mike at Night Owl happens to be at the top of that list for me. He knows and works on all years of vintage all the way to high-end cutting edge road and mtb bikes. He understands all parts of the frame, forks, shocks, and drivetrains not just from a usage viewpoint but also the machining and engineering process. This guy eats and breathes bikes. Besides all the wealth of his knowledge he is a good dude, very fair, and honest. You couldn’t ask for anything more..! Give him a call–
