In celebration of Bike Month, I am offering bike tune-ups for my Mueller neighbors. For $35, I will offer the following:

Front and rear shifter and derailleur adjustment
Brake adjustment
Lube brake and derailleur cables
Wipe down chain and lube chain
True wheels
Inflate tires to proper air pressure

I will pickup and deliver the bike to your Mueller home for added convenience.

I can also offer other minor repairs. Just ask me for a quote.

I have been an avid cyclist for the last 25 years and learned bike mechanics from a friend who has his own mobile bike repair service. I have rehabilitated many bicycles by performing repairs and reselling on Craigslist and do all of my own repairs on my personal bike collection. I definitely know what I am doing. You will fill the difference in your bike when I return it to you!

I am looking forward to getting more Mueller bikes tuned up and ready to ride. The more of us there is out there on the road, the better!

For more info. or to schedule an appointment, send me a PM or call 512 663-9133.

Happy Trails!

Doug,
Frosty Walker here. I would like to have you do a tuneup with the added tasks of adjusting my cassette (?) the thing that attaches the crank to the bicycle. I recently had a new seat put on and the sales guy told me that whatever connects the pedals was loose and needed to be adjusted. He also told me that the rear hub with the gears attached was also loose and needed adjustment. This could have been an up-sale tactic, but I would like someone I can trust look at it. Your post is very timely for me. You did some adjusting for me once before after a Sunday morning coffee ride. Your kids were along for the ride that day. Let me know what that would cost in addition to a tune up and when the best time you would like for me to bring the Townie to your house. You can either email me at cameracowboy@att.net or call me at 346.8677. Thanks.

Frosty Walker

Wow! Thanks for the great response, neighbors! I am currently setting appointments in the order I receive the inquiry, and am booked through the weekend. Please do keep the requests coming though, I will get to your bike soon. In the mean time, if you would like to pump up your tires, I have a bike pump on my front porch for everyone to use. PM me for my location and you are welcome to free air!

Thanks Sally and Will, I appreciate it.

I tuned several neighbor's bikes this weekend, but have even more waiting. If you have messaged me, please be patient. I have a full-time job and am doing this in my spare time. I will get to you in the order that I receive your PM. May is over, but let's make every month Bike Month!

I have enjoyed meeting many more Mueller neighbors over the last few weeks. It’s been great working on some neat vintage bikes as well as later model good-quality bikes. Some of the stories behind the bikes have been quite interesting, as well.

I am caught up on tune-ups and am glad to continue to offer my personalized service. I find it rewarding to see more bikes on our roads as a result of my work. Please see additional services and pricing below for Mueller residents:


Basic Tune-up $45
Includes:
Front and rear shifter and derailleur adjustment
Brake adjustment
Lube brake and derailleur cables
Wipe down chain and lube chain
Inflate tires to proper air pressure

Bike Wash $10 with tuneup $15 without tuneup


Flat repair $10 per wheel (you supply the innertube)


Used Bike Finder and Seller Service $50

Are you looking for a bike but don’t want to spend the money for a new one? Great used bikes can often be found for 50% off MSRP. Includes consultation to determine the type of bike you are looking for. Also includes emails referring you to up to 10 bikes advertised on Craigslist that meet your needs. I will only send you to bikes that fit you and are reasonably priced.

If you want to sell a bike, I can help with that, too. I will wipe down the frame with cleaner, take pictures of it, write a detailed description of your bike, and post the ad on Craigslist with your contact info. I will come to your home to take pictures and write a description of the bike.

All services except the finder service include pickup and delivery to your home. PM me for an appointment or more info

Doug tuned up my Townie bike a couple of weeks ago. He did a great job, and was even able to get to it the same day I asked. Doug helped me decide whether to keep it or sell it, and then advised me about how to market it. A friend tried the bike out for a few days, and took it to Doug to have it adjusted for her. She ended up buying the bike. Now, Doug is advising me on buying a second-hand bike that suits my needs.
I really enjoyed working with Doug. I especially appreciated it that he was happy to work with someone who is not a fanatic cyclist, just someone who wants to roll over to HEB and the market.
How cool is it to have a bike-smith here in Mueller!
Thanks, Doug!
