Fix My Bike at Home Service


I recently started a website which is a DoorDash-like service for bike repair. Customers can connect with local mechanics to have their bikes repaired at the comfort of their own home. Our service is called FixMyBike: . We currently operate in Texas and Minnesota but are hoping to expand nationwide.

Is there a way we could work with your blog to get the word out to potential mechanics and customers?

Thanks so much,

Kyle Robinson
My Response:
Hey Kyle!
Sure, I can just copy-paste your email.
Why not expand internationally too? Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK and Ireland would be relatively easy to add and you could add other languages/countries over time.
Also I do hope you are allowing bicycle mechanics to set their own rates, since the prices of replacement parts and the minimum wages do vary quite a bit from state to state and country to country. Individual bicycle mechanics may also value their expertise more than others. For example I don't work for anyone for anything less than $30 per hour.
The average wage of bicycle mechanics should be raised in my opinion, which oddly enough would increase bicycle sales since some people would look at the cost and just decide to get a new bicycle instead of getting their old bicycle repaired.

Good luck with your business!

Charles M.

If your bicycle is basically junk and you don't know what to do with it then SELL IT TO ME. I will use it for parts. I will give you a fair price ($20 to $30) for your old clunker just so I can rip it apart for parts.
