velofix San Diego

Bike repair service for San Diego County.

Cycling is more popular than ever in the San Diego region. As Southern Californians continue to focus on fitness and the outdoors, cycling has become a key activity of choice. Our annual climate provides year round riding opportunities. Whether you’re a roadie, a mountain biker, a commuter, a cruiser, or all of the above, San Diego County provides something for everyone. velofix San Diego is excited to serve the region and to be a part of the local cycling community. Forming a perfect partnership, Owner Paul Dunlap and Master Mechanic Thomas Cody, bring years of cycling experience and passion to the velofix business.

Paul Dunlap has been cycling his entire life. Having started out on his Dad’s 1970’s steel Raleigh, he began taking it a part, one component at a time. When completed, he set out on a one-day, 130 mile ride to the coast to test it out. He was hooked on bikes and riding from that point on. Paul continues to cycle, with daily commutes to the office and long rides on the weekend. Look for him out on Coast Highway, taking in the early morning sights and sounds.

No matter the type of riding you enjoy, whether you’re needing your road bike repaired or your mountain bike repaired, whether you’re looking for bike parts and accessories or to buy a new bike, velofix San Diego has you covered.

Cycle for Life

The first time Tom brought the velofix van to our Saturday morning ride with the Crown City Cyclists, I peeked inside and was intrigued.  He and his partners have built something that appeared to be pretty remarkable.  But appearances can be deceiving.

I knew Tom to be a trustworthy, level-headed member of the peloton.  I’ve learned over the years that trustworthiness in the peloton is usually indicative of trustworthiness in life.  When a few of the other riders from the group spoke highly of his work, I thought that Tom might be the person to help me with a problem.

The wheel on my 45 year old Schwinn Paramount needed to be rebuilt.  Trouble is, I don’t really like to let other people fiddle with my beautiful old bike.  Wheelbuilding is an art, one I have not yet learned, and the last time something like this happened I had to wait months while an “artist” mechanic got around to rebuilding my wheel.   This time I had hope that Tom was the right guy for the job.

Turns out he was. Not only did he rebuild my wheel quickly and perfectly, the cost was less than the original estimate because he put in extra work to save my classic old rim.   It would have been much easier for him to simply sell me a new rim.  I had already given him the go-ahead.  I would never have known.  But he didn’t.

There are some who say that the truest test of character lies in how a person acts when nobody is looking.  Some also say that that character is the thing we as a society are losing fast.

That is why I am so impressed with velofix.   Tom and his partners have managed to harness the best of both the old and the new.  He provides the kind of honest, quality, caring service that it hard to find these days, while at the same time using cutting edge technology to do his work.

Tom owns the business.  He’s the one who works on the bikes.  He’s got the depth of experience that can only be earned through many years of practice.  He’s got character.  He is trustworthy.  And he is willing to bring his fully stocked shop to my door.

I consider myself lucky to have found Tom and velofix.
