Default Re: Need a Tune-Up in Chicago

Hey Dr Bob... The more you are around these bikes the more you will learn that bike shops are more or less purists and most turn their noses up at us MBers. Heck I rode in to a local shop and the guy wouldn't even sell me an inner tube... Best bet is to ask simple questions here or find a group of MBers in your area and learn to tune your own bike or get one of them to do it for you. I will tell you that these things are really pretty simple but have special quirks and even if you went to a small engine mechanic like for chain saws or lawn mowers (if they would even touch it which most wont) it would be hit and miss whether they could actually make your ride run better than it already does.
