Regular maintenance I do it myself but anything major I take mine to Trek Burnaby now (I use to go to BSP on Pacific and Veloholics) Can't go wrong with Velo, just far for me.

what kind of bike do you have?

if you have a 300-800 dollar bike. Any corner shop will do.
Caps in richmond
Ride on at Marpole
Union Street Cycle in china town (they open at 8 to accommodate commuters)

once you have 1000-3000 dollar bikes with groupset that are 105, i would go back to MEC / Giant / dealers for quick service.

$3k - 15k bikes, then you got Veloholics on Fraser, or La BC on Broadway.

Been working on a work commuter these last couple of weeks, almost done but not sure about securing all the parts. How do you guys secure your bolted on parts? Ie. seat post, stem, fork, etc.

Already using a U-lock + cable for wheels. Also wheels are using nuts and not quick release.

^ bring it inside or lock in a locked bike area. Securing parts just slow the thief down ... or thief will just take whole bike.

Of course that would be the ideal solution, but let's say I can't bring it in. So it's 100% going to be locked outside to a bike rack with a u-lock and cable.

And yes, securing parts just slows them down. So I'm hoping to slow them down enough to just give up.

If they want parts, they will usually take the whole thing most of the time.

I guess so. My coworkers bike had her handlebar and everything attached to it stolen. They unscrewed the stem cap and clipped the brake cables. At least this project is a beater bike with sub-par parts, lol

Minor update. Finish the commuter bike and rode it enough times to be comfortable with the seat height, bar angle, etc. I then bought steel ball bearings(a couple of sizes) and soldered them into the various hex socket screws. That plus a u-lock and cable seem to do the trick so far. I don't park it outside overnight as well.

If they wanted to steal it, I'm sure they would find a way. But at least they need to work a little harder to remove the non-lockable parts.

Also it's easy enough for me to unsolder the ball bearings out to make adjustments. Just gotta do it at home and not on the fly when I'm out.

Anyone ride a fixed gear? I'm interested in picking one up, I know online there are tons of cheap fixed gear bike brands but is there anything I should look for in particular? Any tips on riding a fixed gear? TIA

Edit: Will probably sell the Fuji posted above and get a new fixed gear with flip-flop hub.
