I reached to Jim via Warmshowers because I didn’t know what else do in such a big city as San Francisco during these Covid times.
Jim also turned out to be a professional bike mechanic. We (mostly Jim) spent almost 2 days working on my bike and then he taught me all the bike mechanic basics that I had hoped to learn along the way (but hadn’t thanks to Covid).
We replaced both tires, both brake calipers (& brake pads), both rotors, the chain & cassette and Jim totally redesigned how my front pannier rack fitted on my bike due to the new brake calipers.
San Francisco could have been a stressful experience. Instead it was awesome.
