The only time I bring my bike to a shop is for engine and suspension work. I do everything else.

Experience, if I know the guy is a straight shooter and knows his ish, I will continue to go to them. I had bad experiences with previous shops and so far Evan Yarnall from Solid Performance is the guy I go to if I need anything that I can't do at home.

A bad experience for many has been damages to the bike that the shop refuses to accept that they caused. Scratched rims from tire changes, scratches on bodywork, ect.

I also do all my own work, that's the only way to know for sure what exactly has been done to the bike.
