<-- no commercial interest in this business. Opinion formed over 10 years friendship.
For the scooter I completely trust Mr Zhang. He's the guy Bikefarm's Jeremy used to work with before he got his own place. I'll try and get the address next time I go there, but here's some directions in the mean time. Heading South down Roosevelt, go past the roundabout intersection with Jilong Rd. Pass one road on your right, and the next intersection is on the left, with Xinglong Rd. Do a U-turn here, and head back up Roosevelt. The shop is then on your right, at the bottom of the stairs of a pedestrian over-bridge.
But, Bri, I have always called this mechanic Mr. Chen.
Also, not to quibble about the directions, but do you really have to make a u-turn? At the first intersection you come to (traffic light) you can just pull over like you are making a left-hand turn and then drive over to the tire shop when the light turns green. From there, you can walk your bike on the sidewalk to Lao Chen's.
You're probably right I just call him 'laoban'.
Right again. That's what I always do. I just thought describing it the other way would be easier to follow.
