> * I asked them to adjust my shifting to be more accurate and smooth so that I could take a long ride tomorrow. With a smile, one of their mechanics dropped what he was doing, ran through an adjustment on my bike, and sent me on my way in about 5 minutes! – A Google Mapper from 09/30/10 > * FTF has friendly employees and good prices, but I go there because as people who ride themselves they know what it takes to perform service correctly and how important it is to do things right the first time. – mophileboy, Citysearch
