Since selling our company, people are curious what we do with our time. If you follow this blog, you’ve seen that we do a lot of biking. You may have also seen blog posts of Ron building and modifying bikes, which he loves.
Well, he’s also got a hobby of helping people with random, on-the-spot bike repairs, whether it’s for friends, family, strangers or delivery men.
Queensboro Bridge fix.. tightening down the stem and handlebars.
When someone looks like they have an issue, Ron asks if they need help and you should see the smiles.
This delivery guy down in NYC’s Alphabet City had crashed. Despite the blood all around, Ron fixed his wheel and re-tensioned his chain.
(I helped too.. I gave him a band-aid : )
Fixing a derailleur and resetting the chain. It helps that Ron always carries tools.
Brooklyn brake fix.
No matter what it is that has to do with bikes, Ron’s happy to fix it. Here he’s straightening out the sign at Sussex Bike & Sport.
“Happiness On Two Wheels”
My own personal roadside bike repair service on the East River bikeway..
Gear issues on a Pennsylvania trail.
This guy was stuck with his chain snarled in his front derailleur. Ron fixed it.
Ron traveled across the country to San Fran to rebuild the back hub of one of his custom bikes for our friend Jay.
Fixing his own rental bike in California.
This cutie pie needed a seat adjustment. Yep, starting him early, not even two years old.. no pedals, no training wheels.
This Central Park bike renter had a problem with her seat, which kept sliding down.
She was miserable, but Ron tightened it up in a jiffy.
(I try to take pictures of the repairs because I’m proud of him being so handy and helpful.)
