    I know I’ve seen some floating around. Even remember seeing a van. Looking for a recommendation for someone in OC area. Or even a small indy guy doing side work. I’ve about had it with trying to run this dropper in my Yeti.

    Velofix hugely supports the NICA races. They got my boy rolling for a race two years ago when he busted a spoke.

    Jesse from The Path has the Rad Van. @shawndoh posted about using him recently with success.

    2 thumbs up for an independent fella, with a lot of experience and a RAD human being!

    Jesse spent a lot of time with me when I bought the el Mariachi to help me figure out what I wanted and needed.

    Good guy...

    Just saw Xavier today. He isn’t doing any shuttles right & is just working on bikes. I’d recommend him if you need some work done now. You probably won’t have to wait 2 weeks like some of these other shops.

    Ended up having a friend do it that has been a bike tech before. Made me look like an idiot and sweet talked it in there in like 10 minutes. I think I can do it now that I saw how he did it. He does do side work as well as built/fix wheels if anyone needs anything.
