I have made the very difficult decision to not continue Leo’s Mobile Bicycle Service. This has been the toughest decision I have made. Many of you know that this is my second time in the bike business. The first “Leo’s” was brought to an abrupt end by bankruptcy - something I rarely talk about and to this day am somewhat ashamed of. I gave Leo’s a second chance in the mobile format because of all of you who continued to ask for my services. I believe the mobile format has its merits and it has been successful for me. However at 48 years old, I can only work for meager pay for so long. Bicycles have been a lifelong passion for me but the reality is that as a new business venture they just will not be able to be the life blood I need/want. The changing landscape of retail businesses and the rising costs of doing business are difficult to overcome. This time, I am going out on my own terms.
I want to thank everybody from the bottom of my heart who gave me the chance and allowed me to come to their home, work or wherever to repair bikes. This is truly the most fun I have ever had. Being self-employed is the most rewarding thing I have done but at some point I have to trade that for a “real” paycheck and hopefully some peace of mind, both now and in the future. I will continue to take care of all of you who purchased bikes from me this past year and will do everything in my power to take care of any problems should they arise. I wish I could contact everyone personally but that would be impossible. I will be in contact with many of you just to make sure all is OK and that anything you need is taken care of.
I will be completing some on-going projects as well as liquidating some of my inventory. I expect to wrap up operations by the end of February. Please stay tuned to my Facebook page. I will make announcements there about my availability, liquidation plans etc. I will keep the same schedule at least through the end of January.
Thank you for everything!
