Very cool idea. I may try it out.

Toronto’s got a new bike repair shop, but one that lacks an actual storefront. Instead of opening a bricks and mortar space, Zach Tatem decided to operate a repair service that comes direct to customers’ doors. Formerly a manager with Trek Canada’s mountain bike team, the cycling enthusiast and mechanic already knows what it’s like to be what he calls “a rolling bike shop,” having traveled across the country with catering to the team’s various technical needs.
“I had always dreamt of having my own bike shop, but Toronto already has so many, so I put two and two together and thought of having a fully mobile service, the bike shop that comes to you,” Tatem tells me.
