Chad is the real deal. Prepped my bike +bar/stem change for a bike packing trip in Carrizo Plains. The bike ran so well! I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot on having SSC be my local shop.

We were on a trip from Michigan riding around the Old Fort area. There were 4 of us and we all were having issues with our bikes. First, Chad came in on his day off to help us out (talk about great service)! He was friendly, super knowledgeable about our bikes and how to fix them and his price was fair. We were able to be in the shop with him and he was great at teaching us what he was doing. He is super friendly and fun to talk with. He has some great biking stories! If it wasn't for him our trip wouldn't have been as enjoyable.

Chad is just a crazy good person. He is a throw back to classic mechanics. He just doesn’t do the minimum- he goes that extra time to figure out what are the issues that you are going to have- how many mechanics are going to take that extra time these days to actually sort out your bike. I know a ton of great me mechanics out there. But I brought my new gravel bike in for a few pain in the you know what problems. And I got back a better put together bike than the factory did! Chad is not in this business to get your fifty or hundred bucks and push you out the door - if you are looking for someone you can trust- this is your guy.
