Happy, go Lucky... Always willing to help.

Aaron came to Davis in 1997 to attend UC Davis on a full scholarship from The Buck Foundation. During college, Aaron worked at a few of the downtown Bike Shops in addition to The Paint Chip, Mobile Connections, Jamba Juice, Cafe Roma, The Logical Learning Center, and D-M Information Systems, Inc.. Aaron is very proud to say that he has never been unemployed for longer than 3 days (one time in 2004) since he was 14yrs old and that many of his jobs overlapped one another.

2008-07-06 22:00:12 Sorry, figured it out. I'll invite him to create a page for the new business. You only removed his second comment and I missed his first. —JasonAller
2008-08-20 21:40:16 Jason and I both fixed it at the same time. There was a bold in the very top announcement that wasn't closed. —JabberWokky
2008-10-08 09:06:59 Sagat has yet to acknowledge the existence of her own page, perhaps you could clue her in that she can click her name and voila? Uni does need some color!
Hey, want a challenge you won't be able to fix (no shop in Northern California has been able to help me, including all the usual suspects in Davis bike church,bike exchange, places in sac, etc)? I have a 4 speed sturmey archer from a moulten that is from early 60's and has working full suspension, the piece that goes in the center of the sturmey (axle thingy) snapped... I really want to get this bike working again cause it's just awesome and utterly classic... —StevenDaubert
2008-10-08 19:26:12 Heya, is there a fee to get an appointment on Sunday? My back wheel bearings are shot and need to be replaced. I might even need a red tuning (or at the least a yellow) once you see how bad the wheels are. —SunjeetBaadkar
2008-10-09 10:41:57 What sunny warrants a response but I don't? —StevenDaubert
2008-10-20 10:34:51 What up Aaron, I talked with Sagat yesterday and apparently she is having one of her buddies who is an artist come in from Japan! Like I said sagat wasn't aware of the personal page, but I told her how to peep scene!
P.S. give the students there fixie fix and when it slows down and you want a real challenge I will bring my moulten thru. I honestly don't expect you to succeed where every bike shop for 50 miles hasn't, but it's still worth a shot! —StevenDaubert
2008-10-20 21:05:49 Hello Aaron. Thank you very much for your offer! Actually we have been working with a couple artists about showcasing their work in our shop. However, nothing will be confirmed until November. I shall let you know as soon as I find out! —Sagat
2008-12-09 19:18:28 sounds great! —StevenDaubert
2008-12-13 07:38:46 No problem. I've been meaning to mention that there are some issues with that layout on smaller monitors, with the images on the left and right top pinching the text. You might want to move the ones on the left down to the text. It's not a tremendously big deal, but if you have your browser window sized certain ways (or have certain resolution screens), it can look odd and hard to read (the table gets squeezed). I think I fixed it awhile back, and you migrated the photos back up over time, but I never bothered to fix it again, as it's not a terrible problem. When it gets really small, the table pops to below the photos. —JabberWokky
2008-12-24 12:47:06 Did you ever get a chance to visit Konditorei at it's old location? —StevenDaubert
2008-12-24 12:54:19 ¬_¬
So yeah, scratch trying to fix the moulten, my dad would rather throw away history then have it take up a small small spot of his garage... —StevenDaubert
2009-04-23 02:15:34 you should try thai dynamite —StevenDaubert
2009-07-25 17:18:32 Thanks. I already got my current issues resolved but maybe next time. —RealComputers
2009-07-31 10:07:57 Well, the first thing that comes to mind when setting any event up is the audience. First off, what kind of crowds it brings. Understandably that would be the biking community. However, there is that secondary issue of the money-making community. My worry is the legitimacy of this sort of event. There would have to be a way to make sure that parts being traded and sold are not illegally obtained. What is to stop someone from stealing a random bike earlier in the day, breaking it apart, and then selling the non-licensed parts? When a bike is licensed via TAPS or whatnot, it is licensed as a whole. That is just a random thought that comes to mind (evil minds aren't necessarily evil themselves). Reputable vendors would need to be contacted and non-reputable vendors would need to be verified. However, the perfect venue would be Central Park. It is close to most places people bike near/to so that works out pretty well for the people who somehow aren't reached by advertising methods. As far as advertising, that is the easy part. With enough time (but not too much time), the internet, flyers, word of mouth, and calling in favors is how it is done (at least in my world). I could easily help with that part if you need. But frankly, I think it is a great idea if only the people buying and selling were people at manned booths with a background that is traceable. I think the idea that someone can walk up off the street and sell something to someone other person off the street is a bit tricky if there is an altercation. Otherwise, great idea. It would need to be brainstormed more, but yeah. Let me know if you want my help. —SunjeetBaadkar
2009-09-14 14:58:00 Hey Aaron, I have a cheap mountain bike, the pedals have some movement that they shouldn't have (it's kinda up and down, as if they aren't seated with the axle or whatnot) I have another exact copy of the same cheap bike that doesn't have the problem... How do I swap / repair? —StevenDaubert
Upon further reflection I think I'm going to just unbend the other bikes bent derailer hanger and then move the good derailer onto the old bike... How much do you want for use of a chain breaker onsite @ apex ?
2009-09-22 08:51:57 Others might disagree, but I think the reason to keep those brief is because the page is a directory pointing people to the more detailed entries about each shop or resource. The text should be however long it takes to distinguish each for somebody scanning over the list looking for something particular. —JabberWokky
2009-12-12 11:36:28 I went and asked for No Interwiki entry for: wikispot"community. Hopefully the answer will make things clearer for everyone. Despite any issues that arise the good news that comes with this change is that the way is cleared to now make some improvements to the software that hosts Davis Wiki and the other Wiki Spot wikis. —JasonAller
2010-02-01 19:03:03 regarding your bizarro votes: reread question #2 — thats not a direct link, its a general link. the text was a link to comics and to roleplaying. Just like every thai place links to thai restaurants and every barber shop links back to stylist places, etc. question #1 is about the direct link. —EdWins
2010-04-14 14:13:05 I will bring you an abalone to the bbq, bring a cooler or a bucket that can hold some water to put it in. —DagonJones
2010-05-29 18:40:12 Hey Aaron, I missed you at the bbq, I had your abalone. I am in Fort Bragg right now and will be bring back a few abalone. If your shop is open on monday I will gladly bring by one or two to give to you. Otherwise, I can bring one by to another location if you like. I will likely have more than I can eat. Just let me know. —DagonJones
2010-06-03 22:17:03 your welcome. I am glad you enjoyed it, I will have to try it that way some time. someone told me it is good to steam it with sake. your kids seemed to enjoy poking at it when I brought it over. —DagonJones
2010-06-28 22:55:29 bike is working great, thanks for the help. It is nice to not have my chain skipping all the time. —DagonJones
2010-07-12 10:12:53 Ugh, sorry to hear about your experience at Bistro. I despise that place. —TomGarberson
2010-07-12 10:22:22 What a great family portrait!! —CovertProfessor
Thanks... it was taken at the UCD Arboretum by Musa Zaid, email@example.com. He's a great local Photographer that used to work for the Aggie and is now at UCSF Med School. Email him if you ever need some pics done. his family still lives in Davis, so he comes back and forth regularly.
2010-08-07 15:18:24 It was nice running into you today!
2010-09-02 08:48:40 Hey Aaron, thanks so much for the auction donation! I think my wife may be bidding on the tune-up, since she's headed back to school next week. Her poor bike has been largely neglected over the summer. (Don't tell her I said that, she'll feel guilty) —TomGarberson
2010-09-22 23:14:14 Good man on the bike pump —StevenDaubert
2010-10-13 21:33:57 Good luck with the possible expansion! —WilliamLewis
2010-12-01 10:17:31 Bad luck about the chuck... I hope it was a case of somebody pocketing it while they were working on their bike and forgetting or some similar case of neglect rather than malice. —JabberWokky
Nope... they stole it. The compressor in question is the one that I left a hose outside for people to use anytime. If the chuck is removed, the hose leaks and makes a huge racket with the compressor constantly running and trying to fill the tank. So they new what they were doing as it would be instantaneous loud obnoxious noise. When I came to the shop in the morning, the compressor was still running (and overheating) so I had to unplug it. Its too bad really, as many people came by and used it on a regular basis. —Aaron.Curtin
2011-02-16 20:48:02 I probably wont swing by anytime soon, so why don't you email me at dagonjones at gmail.com I am happy to answer any questions you have. —DagonJones
2011-04-15 13:45:51 Hey Aaron, I noticed the $15 off any tune-up for students—is the $25/45/75/105 set of figures listed on Bicycle Shops still current? If so, what's actually included in the $10 (with discount for students) tune-up? That's an impressive price! —TomGarberson
2011-08-28 20:21:15 Just wanted to say that I hope all is well with the family. Saw the message on the door of your shop during my shift. My prayers are with you. —Wes-P
Things are getting better, but being an only child, everything falls on my shoulders. My parents are both not doing well, so I have to take care of everything for them in addition to trying to take care of everything here. I hope that in the next few weeks I can get everything taken care of and back to a "normal" life. I appreciate your kind words and all the support and understanding I've gotten from customers. Here's to better days ahead. —Aaron.Curtin
2011-10-13 16:24:02 Thanks for the info Aaron. I'll probably check with Freewheeler first since that's where I got my bike, but you're my backup =) —MeggoWaffle
2011-10-22 10:25:18 how was your tenure at DM info? Ever run into Scott there? Also I saw the APEX name on one of those Taco bell one dollar to charity cards! Props for donating to charity, unprops for eating TB ^__~ I still remember when I thought fast food was a treat ugh —StevenDaubert
I worked At DM Info, when it was independently owned. Not a horrible job, but not the best for a college student with an short attention span (in my case). Mainly worked on the Aerojet litigation. Too much time in front of a computer screen. They did have free ice cream sandwiches in the employee lounge though ;) As for TB, yeah... try to not go there more than 2x a month... lesser of 2 evils when compared to Jack in the Box.
Verily, all fast food is gnar-bar... Daubert
I just quoted your reply to Sarah, and she laughed and said, "he is a wonderful person". More people should use the word "verily". -jw
I'm guessing this is the world's first sentence to use both "verily" and "gnar-bar." —cp
2011-11-05 04:28:07 goodbye and good riddance?
now we just have to get the alley un painted from that stupid shade of green —StevenDaubert
2012-03-29 10:22:27 I just bought the groupon for a tune-up at APEX. My poor bike is sadly neglected, looking forward to getting it fixed up a bit. I know I'm going to need a new tube, and I'm guessing new brake cables as well. —TomGarberson
2012-06-24 15:26:48 tell me a little more about your experience with Ally if you please —StevenDaubert
What would you like to know? How after 3 years they still haven't given me the light switch and socket covers (which puts me in violation of fire codes for which I have been cited), or how I got the run around for 2 years about expanding/moving to another larger location next door, or how I was told my current location was 600sq/ft and charged accordingly but after measuring its only 351sq/ft with no explanation on their part. Dealing with them has been/is a nightmare.
2012-07-11 16:02:27 Hey Aaron, I'm inheriting an old-ish road bike my dad doesn't ride anymore. It's been hanging in his garage for a decade or two, so it may need some wheel work. Also, his old biking shoes won't fit me... do you carry various types of shoes? I have no idea what kind of pedals are on the bike (and if I did I wouldn't know what it meant). Am I likely to need to get new pedals, along with shoes? If so, any recommendations on how to go about selecting something suitable for me? —TomGarberson
2013-05-22 17:46:10 Sinish has the manager make orders from classico (the distributor), talk to them or just tell them you want to order one of the I think 5 liter tubs if you really really want it back... —StevenDaubert
