Ok, I'll bite. The mechanic I go to is the Head Mechanic for the Latvian National team. He's an ex-racer from way back. He was showing me a set of wooden rims he used to race on last time I was there! I'd say he's the best wrench in Latvia. He's as honest as the day is long, has the least expensive parts around, and is completly unpretensious. I've seen Magnas' next to Merckxs' on his repair stands. His attitiude is "Well, if it's all you can afford at least you are riding!"
Most of the hard core commuters (you need to be pretty hard core to survive the Latvian winter on a bike!) and messengers go to him as well as the racers. Last time I was there I had him do a complete tear down on a bike. When I asked him how much it cost he just kind of looked at me like; What do you mean how much does it cost? You bought it here didn't you? After careful consideration he asked me for 1 Latvian Lat, which is about two dollars. That place rocks!
