Bike Mechanic Zurich/Zug area

Hi all,

I have a road bike and I was hoping for a recommendation for a bike mechanics that would be interested in re-fitting my bike with some new parts & doing a general service. I haven't a huge budget, but any recommendations are welcome!

Cheers,
Rock

Or a bike enthusiast on this forum who feels comfortable changing some of the main parts on the bike...

It would be replacing the groupset, crank and a few other parts from another bike I have.

Sort of thing I'd love to do, but in the wrong area for you, and currently somewhat incapacitated as well. If you're still looking and desperate I could maybe get onto it in a month or so.

Re: Bike Mechanic Zurich/Zug area

I built it for him. It was stripping down an old road bike which was 'well used' and removing the parts from a crashed bike with a broken frame. It ended up a slightly more involved job as the old bike had a threaded Octalink BB and the crashed one was press fit but nothing too tricky, just a few extra new bits required.
