One thought on “Meet the Manager – Tualatin, OR

  1. I have a Spin Doctor gift from my daughter of tune up and drive train clean. I called last week for an appointment and was given 9/6. I brought my bike in today, 9/5 and was told I did not have an appointment and there was no room until the end of Sept. I counted on having my bike tuned and cleaned for Cycle Oregon this coming weekend using my daughter’s gift.

    I am very disappointed!
