The Michael's Professional Bike Repair Experience
For over forty years, Michael has built a solid reputation as one of the area's most trusted bicycle mechanics. Michael's commitment to providing you with honest, reliable service - quickly and professionally - is what separates him from the competition. He applies to his craft the same attention to detail that has allowed him to race successfully at the state and national level, on both road and track.
Michael has resisted enlarging his business by taking on less-skilled assistants. He controls the quality of his work by doing it all himself - to his high standards.
Michael was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and has spent every summer of his life at the NJ shore. He discovered the joys of riding in the mid-1970's and has developed a deep knowledge and understanding of how a bike should perform. He knows what it means to ride day-in and day-out and to rely on your bicycle to get you where you want to go - quickly, efficiently and without problems.
WHY MY WORK IS A GREAT VALUE
Here's just one example of what you get for your money:
When I replace a shifter cable or housing you get only the finest, stainless steel cables (which never corrode) and the best quality cable housings that are Teflon-lined for smoothness and lasting performance. During installation, each housing is carefully cut and hand-filed square to seat perfectly into the housing bed or ferrule. Then each housing opening is filed with a jewelers file to remove burrs that could fray or bind your cable. Finally, each cable is "pre-stretched" after installation, so that the adjustment can be permanently fine-tuned without any break-in period.
This kind of attention to detail leads to longer lasting cables and reliable shifter adjustments that endure.
I take the time to make each repair or adjustment to perfection. No shake-and-bake repairs here.
