I spoke with Mike to get some work done.
I checked up on his prices for the parts and labor. They were a somewhat pricey though not outrageous, comparable to another shop in Mountain View that does good (though pricey) work.
The problem was when I tried to discuss the price with him he grew angry and very defensive, like a thief who had been caught, and tried to backpedal out of the transaction.
He was very, very upset that I had checked the price of his parts. For this reason, not the quality or price of his work which I'm not commenting on right now, I am very hesitant to recommend him.
