Community Gift Card Blitz!

MARCH 1 – 10, 2021!
This link will be live on March 1st! Follow it to purchase Community Tune Up Fund Gift Cards! They are reserved for lower income cyclists who find themselves falling short of their repair bill.

1. Enter the amount you desire to pay
2. Skip the promotion code
3. Your name, your email
4. As recipient, put Robbie, and itswheelsimple@gmail.com
5. In the “personal message box,” write “community” and your phone number.

You will receive an email, and I will receive your redemption code, so that I can apply it DIRECTLY to repair tickets when a customer cannot afford proper, even sufficient, much less complete repair. Folks will fill out a form saying that some or all of the services/goods they received here, detailed by a copy of their receipt attached, was paid for with gift cards bought for the tune up fund. These will be kept for accounting records and taxes.

I’ll then notify you via email or phone as to how your gift card was used and when without revealing their identity to you.

More generally, on the live Google sheet maintained here, the public can find summarized repair tickets and see how the program is progressing to date.

You are free to choose any amount. Small amounts will likely assist one or maybe two people. Larger amounts have the potential to assist several people, and to make your dollar go further, I will apply as much as possible to labor first, so no sales tax must be collected on it. Stay tuned! The link goes live March 1!!!


Inquire by phone or email. Otherwise, you can purchase a membership on this website by going to “shop” and making your way from there. I’m only taking on 3 new members at this time. Thanks.

Go to Shop/@rasich_art to see all designs, and buy tee shirts.

    Took my new seat by to see if they had a socket wrench to tighten it. Did it right there for me, no problem, and didn't even charge. I know where I will be going for all my repairs in the future!

    I had bought a standard quality rim from him after my AlexRim spoke busted on me on my bike so I was really in a pinch. It was a good price but I had issues with getting my tires to seat in properly, I initially was planning to just … More buy the next quality up and when I asked him the price he told me I could just return the rim I initially bought and just pay the difference in price between the old and new rim. Stellar customer service and a super nice down to earth guy. I wish every shop in Richmond was as quality as him. Robbie is awesome give this shop all your business
