Well, after some deep, philosophical conversion with the higher ups at Scott Sports, Black Pug Bike Repair is no longer a dealer for Scott bikes. It’s not a decision I’m happy with after 5 years of selling their bikes, but there will be another shop in the Dayton area that has committed to a large inventory and Black Pug was not a stocking dealer, special order only. The folks at Scott didn’t seem it fair that one store commits to stocking a lot of bikes and another doesn’t have to. I get that. However, I still have an account with Scott and can take care of my customers when it comes to service parts and warranty claims. I am grateful for that as I didn’t want to leave you all hanging. A huge THANK YOU to the hundreds of customers and followers of Black Pug who supported me and signed the petition put out their by my good friend and customer Pete Hitzeman! I am truly humbled. Black Pug’s current road bike offerings are from Co-Motion, Lynskey, Carver, Soma, Velo Orange, and for a do it all carbon rig, the Niner RLT RDO. The full list of bike offerings will be updated in early Spring 2020.

With little notice, Chris was wonderfully helpful with my bike situation. He fixed my seat, checked the bike over for safety and workability, and helped me solve transportation challenges I faced due to the bike's shape. Everything was done quickly and at an affordable cost. He will be my first call when I need anything associated with my bike!
I have been a mechanic of many stripes for over 15 years. I've stripped motorcycles down to the frame and restored them, F-16s down to the hulk of a fuselage and had them flying again, and rebuilt cars with every imaginable defect. I've done all sorts of work on my own bikes since I was ten years old.
Chris at Black Pug Bike Repair is the only person that I trust to work on my road, cyclocross, and mountain bikes more than myself. Need I say more?
Of course not, but I will anyway. Having been a professional mechanic for such a long time, I know what I'm looking at when I watch someone work. I know from the way Chris's hands and eyes move that he's an instinctual mechanic. Watch him rig a rear derailleur from scratch some time, and you'll know what I mean. He's quick without rushing, painstaking and thorough without dawdling, and inexpensive to boot.
If you have anything-- ANYTHING-- wrong with any of your bikes, don't mess around. Just take them to Black Pug, and get it done right the first time.
I really like this bike shop ! HD does a great job.
