Hi, my name is John and I have been re-storing, re-purposing and riding bicycles since I was a young boy. My recent journey started back when I was laid off from Motorola in mid-2000. I started fixing bicycles for family and friends and soon grew it into a passionate hobby. For the last 10 to 12 years I have had the pleasure of seeing many happy faces. I’ve enjoyed it so much that I continued doing it after I found full-time employment. I love working with my hands and keeping busy, but I also find enjoyment in fitting the right bike to the right person. I carefully inspect each bike myself to ensure everybody’s safety. I have been tinkering with bikes my whole life and now I have this amazing hobby that brings back memories of my childhood.

John, thank you for volunteering and going the extra mile to repair 29 bikes for the children at RocVale Children's Home. The children are once again smiling!



John, this is Preston and he has autism. His bike was stolen and because of generous contributions, from yourself, you have made his day. Thank you so much for supplying a bike for Preston.

John The Bike Guy helped us with a family with financial need by providing some excellent bikes at a greatly reduced rate. He is a kind and professional man who we would highly recommend when I need a bike. I will always go to John.

What an amazing experience. John is very professional and does the work in a timely fashion. He had a great response time and his prices are extremely reasonable. He replaced the rear tire, chain and brakes. I am so grateful he is local and he is a very nice man. He has a very clean and organized work-space. I am so glad I found somebody in town. Thanks John for doing such a great job! I'm now a forever customer.
