Dear Greg,

Just got the TV box back today. Chalk me up as one more satisfied customer.

The bosses look to be dead on accurate in terms of alignment with the braking surface, even in spite of my off-centered rear wheel truing.

Your welds look pretty good, and functional too.

Thanks for a job well done!

Finally got it stripped, painted and rebuilt.  Took it for a spin on Sunday, it ran great. 

Thanks for your work. 

Joe.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!!!  Your skills are extremely

appreciated.  The victim should have been pronounced DOA so you get super

high marks for your efforts to resuscitate this bike.  Can't wait to have

a lovely ride again on this frame.

Sincerely

I received the bike frame today. The frame looks great I very pleased with the work that was done. I plan on giving you

some more work in the future. Oh yah I had a question can you repair a missing tooth on a sprocket I have? Again it's very rare.

Thank you again,

Rick

Hi,

One last thing I forgot to ask. My LBS is curious about how you fixed the dents? They were impressed.

Just wanted to thank you for repairing my frame. I took it out twice over the weekend and it was awesome.

Thanks,

Robert

Greg,
 
I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving.
 
I wanted to thank you again for the frame repair.  Your work obviously speaks for itself as my friends and family who saw it were a bit envious. 
 
Thanks,
 
Matt

A few years back, 2001 I think, I was returning from a California AIDS Ride 8 training ride heading out of Sausalito

toward the GG bridge when inexplicably I hit a guard rail at a whopping 7 MPH. My bike, a vintage 1991 Bridgestone

RB1 had a bent top tube and fork, as well as smashed handlebars. Me, I had a busted lip and a really weird lack of

recall about what happened. My riding buddy, Christina couldn't understand how it happened either. I had to cab it

back to SF where my car was parked and contemplate repairs.

Somehow, I came upon Gregs and his shop in warrenton. I stopped in one day and brought the bike in. He examined

it and gave me a lesson on metals and bike frames which was quite fascinating but way over my head. He is clearly

very passionate about his work and a lot of fun to talk to. I was sold so I took the bike home, stripped off all of the

parts and brought the frame back to him for repair. He did a beautiful job repairing the tubing, basically everything

north of the seat tube. As well as building me a new fork. He originally suggested I buy a carbon fork but I wanted

to have a steel fork built. The resulting bike has survived many miles on the road, CAR8 and ALC 3,4 and 5 among

them and the "Mikkelstone" still going strong.

They're good people with great skills.

I had a favorite old Trek 720 touring frame from 1985 that needed some work to get up to modern times. They took care of all the work, did a beautiful job, and I went ahead and got a powder

coating since some brazing work had been done. It was a beautiful job done. Nicer than the original, in my opinion. I will be returning them for more work and a custom road frame.

They are a tiny shop and often only go by appointment, and are a bit eccentric-- all things I love about a business like this. Looking around the shop there are relics of decades of work, letter

s from famous clients, and everything else that's cool about a 30 year old bicycle frame shop.

Had an old guerciotti that met its demise on the roof of my car about 15 years ago. I decided I was going to restore it and the first thing

that needed doing was to get the frame rebuilt. The top tube and the bottom tube were tweeked and needed to be replaced.   Repair was

done quickly and it looks great. I was hoping that he would be able to restore the lugs but he was not able to save them as they were pretty mangled.

Reasonable and quick. It's great that there are still local craftsman like Greg around!

Support this shop because it is the only reasonably priced bicycle frame repair shop in the  area. Its a mom and pop type shop.

They'll set you up with reasonable repair costs.

If you've got a broken high end frame he can fix it like new. The "sizing cycle" allows you to ride your bike geometry before it is built.

I don't think this service is too common and you should be happy to try your bike before you plunk down thousands of dollars.

It is the most affordable frame repair shop in the  area. Unless you've got a relative that knows how to weld basic things like

cracked rear drops...etc.

Greg knows his stuff! I have a vintage Peugeot carbolite Course' that I have logged more than

18,000 miles on. After that many miles the seat downtube at the bottom bracket broke clean at

the lug and the dropout deleloped a crack too. I love this bike, smoothest, fastest, tightest

cornering ride I have ever owned, so after asking around, I brought it to Gregg. Nice little

shop in Warrenton. He examined it carefully and asked if I could leave it for repair. About a

week later it was done. I picked it up a few weeks after that and couldn't have been happier!

The welds were smooth and professional with lots of extra care to hit the stress areas that this

bike will be subject to. The price was reasonable too. I highly recommend this shop to anyone who

needs frame repair and I will be back. GREAT JOB, GREG!!

Hi Greg.  Thanks again for the outstanding work on the tandem.  When you have a moment, could you tell me again

the process you went through to do the frame restoration?  Sanding numerous times, painting, rust-preventer,

top coating, welding, how many coats of whatever, etc.  I'd like to spread the work about how good a job you do. 

Thanks.
