    Best spot for tunes in the boise, eagle, meridian?

    I'm looking for a regular place to take my Gran Mal for full tunes..I know I won't need them all the time, but I want a place where the guys working on my bike ride mountain bikes and have a vast knowledge of riding and mechanics...And wouldn't mind me watching or learning a little from them...
    Any shops come to mind???

    Where is the best place to get a full tune on a DH rig?

    TIA

    Josh

    Joyride is the most DH/freeride friendly shop I've been to so far (not that I've been to all the local shops...). One of the owners, Phil, does some of the downhill races, and is a pretty cool guy to talk to. Their website is at http://joyride-cycles.com/.

    Go to Idaho Mountain Touring and ask for James or Bobs and ask for Patrick...they know what time it is...That said, I do my own work..but If I were to trust another....

    I like the way you asked the question. I will send it to a fairly new shop as a recommendation on what people want in a shop.
