Hello I’m Dave Curl, The Bike Repair Man. At a tender age, I first trained in a bike shop workshop; in my weekend job I repaired customer’s bikes, starting with flats, pumping my way up! For many years I’ve repaired, serviced and maintained my and my family’s bikes. I’ll admit to being a bit of a perfectionist. Coming up to date, I launched The Bike Repair Man in 2009 as my day-to-day business. Am I professionally trained? Yes, I’ve taken the Cytech level 2 training; it’s the bicycle industry’s qualification for bike preparation, maintenance and repairs. And finally, some details: I ride a Turner mountain bike and a Bianchi road bike and I service and repair just about all bikes.
Out for a ride
The Bike Repair Man out for a ride on the Slickrock trail in Moab, Utah. About the bike rider: I’ve been on and around bikes from the age of 3. These days I ride a mountain bike and when I don’t I ride a road (racing) bike. I’ve raced bikes on the road, the track, up and even down, hills. I guess that makes me a cyclist. I still remember that first bike ride really well.
I admit I had just cleaned the floor!
