5 stars are not enough to describe Arthur! He is an amazing teacher in theory and practice. I took a 40 hour course with Arthur and learned how to diagnose and think like an advanced bike mechanic.
1:1 training is much better than sitting in a boring classroom with other students. Your training time is dedicated to you and not a "one size fits all course."
Thank you Arthur! 8/2017
Hi Arthur, I wish I could give you some negative feedback to go on, but all I can think of is how much I learned. Let me try something for those testimonials...
I went in to Arthur's class knowing how to change a tire. Poorly. We took apart and put together at least dozen bikes over seventy hours, including two I brought from home: a mediocre mountain bike and a twenty-year-old patchwork monster from Frankenstein's fevered nightmares. He explained every part in detail, made sure i knew what they did and how to fix them, then broke them again and said "your turn." Now the monster runs like a pleasant dream. For my final exam, he had me completely break down and reassemble a bike that we had never touched, and I'm pretty sure it runs better than it did before. Not bad for someone who couldn't put a tire back on without a tire iron. Arthur teaches with zen patience, easy confidence, and an impish sense of humor. I highly recommend him.
Frustrated with my teacher
Message: How is it going over there, this is Natalie, I took a 4 hour class from you a couple weeks ago. I couldn't wait to get back to the shop to work on my derailing techniques. Your teaching really helped out. Before I would have to wait for my teacher to help me and still he would only do the work for me and then say that's how you do it. I just wish you were my bike teacher

My high school son and his friend, both sophomores, attended Arthur's tune-up class and both said working with Arthur was one of the best uses of their time. The boys have been riding their bikes quite a bit since the summer and they feel much better about maintaining their brakes, gears, chains, tires/wheels and other cycle fundamentals to get a smooth and safe ride. Arthur was extremely knowledgeable and great at explaining. I feel much better as well! Highly recommend Bike Teacher. Yelp 9/216

"Arthur gave Bradley total guidance, direction in all aspects of working on his bike and what he needed to know, as well as showing the correct tools to use. Explanation of how and why parts went together in a certain way and much patience allowing Brad to do the work. Brad was very happy with what he learned in the class and told me he wants to recommend the class to his friends. EXCELLENT TEACHING!!! I am a very pleased grandmother, money very well spent!"

"This is a one of a kind place"
Arthur was a a great teacher and his facilities are top notch. I gave up my car for a bicycle over a year ago. I love riding my bike to work, the gym, the grocery store, and the beach. However, when your bike is your main transportation there is a fair bit of maintenance required. I was tired of taking the bike to the shop and not having them give my bike the care it deserved. Arthur answered every question I had and walked me through how to make the repairs and adjustments. Since I had a fixie he dropped the derailleur portion of the class and took me through truing a wheel. This class customization was greatly appreciated. Alex A.

Arthur at Bike Teacher has created one of the best bicycle maintenance and build shops. He is very patient and takes the time to show you how it's done while giving you the confidence to do it on your own.
I signed up for Bike Teacher's pro build course and had the awesome opportunity to build-up my new bike from start to finish. Arthur was there to guide me along the way, give great tips and provide the right tools to do the build properly.
I highly recommend Arthur for both small and large jobs. His shop is comfortable, well organized and an overall great place to learn.
Justin just got home and he said he learned a lot and feels confident about taking this job as a bike mechainc.
He had a good ride with you at Demonsration Forest as well, thanks for taking him. Lorie (mom)
