    Conclusion: What is the value?

    • Ryan is willing to fix all types of bikes.
    • He is willing to fix the bike “on-the-spot” with you.
    • When you participate in a Watch/Help/Learn, it is cheaper than dropping it off, because Ryan prices it that way. He realized that he can more bikes in a week “on-the-spot” than a “long queue of bikes”. Thus, it is “more efficient” to offer repair in the form of Watch/Help/Learn. And if it is “more efficient”, it means “less expensive for you”.
    • When you fix “on-the-spot”, you don’t need to wait a week for your bike.
    • When he started the bike shop, six years ago, he didn’t know how to fix bikes. He learned the hard way: lots of practice as an adult. As such, he has been humbled. This translates into a friendlier experience at a bike shop than the “bike snobbery” that has plagued potentially great bike shops.
    • He is willing to teach you. Some things are easy to remember.
    • By participating, you will have a “healthier understanding” of “what can go wrong on a bike”. Some of it is easy to fix. Some of it, is simply “knowing when to take it into the mechanic”.
    • If you only need “one or two things”, paying by the hour, is even more economical than a “standard drop-off tune-up”.
    • If you participate, Ryan will ask you questions about “how you use the bike”. Ryan will tailor the bike’s tune-up to your needs.
    • Standard Bike Repair is about participating in the tune-up to make your bike better.
    • It is also easier “to control the price of your tune-up” when you participate.
    • There are “hours” for Standard Bike Repair, but really “anything is game” when you make an appointment in advance.
    • You won’t remember everything that happens in a Watch/Help/Learn, but you will remember enough for you to feel better about your bike. You will have greater command of your bicycle.
    • You will learn how a bike is “supposed to feel”. A well-tuned bike is pleasant to ride.
