there was this guy that recabled my bike at a moment’s notice in silverlake about six years ago (october 1st, 2014) at 7:30am. hit him up about two years later at 8am becuz the riding buddy’s chain broke over near
los feliz/hyperion. she seems to break a chain every two years or so. had me/us back on the road both times within 20 mins. he was at the east corner of the griffith park/edgecliffe intersection and on the edge of the
sunset triangle plaza. pretty close to golden saddle cyclery. good-sized storage unit with a roll-up door tucked into the west side of a single story building loaded to the gills with bikes of all styles and parts.
found him on google originally but not seeing him now. it was a commuter's shop. whatever it took to get you back on the road. his work-both times-was much better than that and lasted the test of time.
charged ridiculously low prices and gladly paid double his asking price both times. hope he's still there because this would truly be a year where he's needed. definitely worth a drive/ride-by to see if he's still there.
