STAY TRUE CYCLEWORKS staytruecycleworks.com staytruecycleworks

For John Cooper, what started as a friend- ly gesture to repair his neighbors’ bikes quickly turned into a side hustle worth pursuing. Of course, timing is everything. The pandemic hit just a few months after he officially launched his mobile bike repair business, Stay True Cycleworks, and his phone hasn’t stopped ringing since. “I’m a first-time business owner, so I didn’t know what to expect. It definitely wasn’t this,” he says.What sets him apart is his ability to pack up his tools, come to his clients, and work on the spot. The mobile service is a natural response to the times. “I have some clients who will just leave their bikes outside for me to work on without having to directly interact,” Cooper says. His goal is to repair your bike in one appointment, avoiding the backlog of repairs that many other shops face. “I try to tune up the bike as-is and avoid using extra parts. I just want to keep it as affordable for people as possible.”
