ah chong sure got a very gd memory:

the first time i went down was wif a fren who need to replace his s4 speedo completely.

I didnt even do anything there, just accompany my fren down only, so just parked my bike opposite the workshop and went in wif my fren(btw he didnt do his speedo in the end cos some cockup on his own). anyway all i did was stood ard the workshop and witnessed the discussion between ah chong and my fren. Think we just spent ard 10 min at the workshop for some technical discussion only, not worth any deep impression for most ppl.

 

The most amazing thing was, ah chong remembered me (or rather, my bike) when i went down after 3 days for an EO and filter change(first attempt at their service). Took one look at my bike and exclaimed,"orh, 988 ah(my bike no)! eh, how ur fren's speedo ah? he want replace it not?".

 

really impressive, tt ah chong.

huh really? low speed no problem just say no problem? I think at least they should be giving us an honest opinion like wat u said so at least we have a broader perception on our choices. If they know watz wrong at least let us know or give us suggestions like they have to do experiments and stuff to determine the fault instead of just saying theres no problem.

 

Now that u said it, it does make sense why mechanics keep saying this to me. But are the components of a bike so complex that experienced mechanics cant tell the problems affecting its performance?

Hi, I never been to Planet but I've been to other bike shops where I tell them I have such a problem and without thinking much they just tell me there's a problem with a certain part and needs to be changed.

 

So been young and ignorant okie change lor....

Well it doesn't solves the problem and end up paying for more on replacements on more parts...

 

Base on a hard way of learning and looking at this thread, I prefer Ah Chong's style. Cos he's honest in earning ur $$$.

My first encounter with planet motors:

 

my rear brake got problem of dropping to lowest pt after some minutes into riding (no brake feeling n lever wont go up after pumping a few times). A shop i went to say tat my rear brake pump got problem n needs to be replace after i explain my prob. he say tat its common for my bike model. he quoted me a price arnd 50 to do the job.

feeling unsatisfied, i went home n surf...then saw this thread and decided to give planet motors a try. go there n explain my prob to ah chong. he looked at my rear disk n say my rear brake jam (the disc damn hot n melt his telephone antenna :D). he then ask ah beng to bleed my brakes and check the calipers. ah beng also mod my racing pegs to include a spring to prevent me from unintentionally applying my rear brake when i rest my foot on it....without me asking for it. All this costs $30 including rear pads (badly worn out due to brakes jamming on disc). I wanted to service my front brakes too cos it gives me a screeching metallic sound when i apply brakes while stationary on a slope. ah beng say no need n its safe to ride. my bike currently has no rear brake jamming problems at all.

I left planet motors a happy customer :smile:

Send me a sign, wanna leave it all behind

I'll be leaving the hands of doom...

Rearrange the master plan, take the future in my hands

Guest bike siao

hi all, just my little comments im not here 2 fire at anyone this are just wat i feel : all the good things said in this thread is true BUT its all past personally feel that the service standard of the shop have dropped tremendously last time was indeed the best shop i have ever been 2. Personally me view is that there are more n more ppl getting to know abt this shop n the business is getting better n better so few incidents was that there were so much ppl that the boss was shouting n rushing his mechanics to finish the job fast n therefore the workmanship is down the drain and also discovered that the price higher = more expensive than usual n even higher than some other shops.... weer very happy 2 see his business getting better but his service standard , workmanship n price has dissapoint me after his business has gone up..... just my 2 cents worth of thots n wat i feel......

IF anyone feels offended moderators pls erase my reply thanks...
