Let’s Get This Ride Started!
It’s been a long time coming, but we are finally here at the starting line. This is going to be an “epic ride” and journey. My Bike Fix started way back in 1990, not in its current form, mind you. What you are reading is the fourth iteration. Let’s call it My Bike Fix 4.0.
It all started with version 1.0, called Bike Racers Supply (BRS for short), trying to compete with well established mail order houses, selling high end bike parts out of my dad’s machine shop. In reality it was just a way for me to buy bike parts at wholesale to fuel my road racing obsession.
Version 2.0 was Swell Cycles. This was also in the early 1990’s, advertising on the World Wide Web wasn’t even a thing back then and cell phones were big enough that you could actually carry them in a water bottle cage on your bike. We started out trying to cater to retirement communities, and taking fliers door to door and putting them on windshields of cars.
Version 3.0 was AZ Bike Shack, LLC. I still have the domain name registered. This was more of a part time, hobby side hustle, but it gave birth to the current version.
Version 4.0 is now My Bike Fix, LLC. A full fledged mobile bicycle repair service. Technology has finally caught up with the idea of mobile bicycle repair.
It’s not new and we certainly didn’t invent it, but it is definitely an idea whose time has come. We are all busy, life has seemed to accelerate the last decade, exponentially. We do most of our research and most of our shopping online now. Yet one thing remains, the things we purchase online still needs a human to service it. That is where My Bike Fix comes in, we offer you convenient service to take care of your bicycle(s) after you have purchased them.
Check our FAQ for more details and to find answers on how the service works and how convenient and cost effective it can be.
What we want to do here in the blog portion of our website is to build a community around bicycles and cycling. We love all forms of two wheel travel, whether your favorite is racing a BMX bike at the local track, street style at the bike & skate park, cruising around town on a cool evening with your stylish fat tire ride, bombing down some single track on your mountain bike, running your first tri-athlon or grinding out the miles and setting a personal best on your road bike. We’ve ridden them all, love riding them, encourage riding them, want to see more kids riding, advocate for more commuting and trails and parks. We speak bikes, we live bikes chain lube and tire slime pump in our veins. We think bikes can change lives, change local communities and we think they can change the world. That is why we call ourselves Bike Evangelists.
We hope you stick with us, and follow along as we will be posting riding tips, tricks and hacks on how to fix your own bike (it’s not rocket science it’s an elegant piece of machine genius), how to videos, ride photos. We want MyBikeFix.com to not only be the place where you can get your bike fixed but the place where you can get your Bike Fix.
So come on, let’s go for a ride! And hey, if you need your bike tuned up or just need a flat fixed, we hope you give a shot. Let us show you how much we love your bike and how easy and convenient it is to use our service and how we can save you time and money and get you back to riding and loving your bike.
