We take great pride in being a full service bicycle shop. We offer tune-ups and adjustments for all makes and models of bikes, with the exception of department store bikes. We reserve the right to refuse working on said bikes due to their poor quality and lack of ability to hold most adjustments made on them.
That said, our services include but are not limited to the following.
Tune-ups and more in-depth repairs are done on a first-come first-served basis and we schedule the bike to be worked on the next available day. You can call and make an appointment, at which point we will take a $20 non-refundable deposit to hold a spot open for your bike. This $20 will get applied to the cost of the tune-up or repair when the work is completed.
Tune-up Package: $69
This service includes making sure the tires are aired up according to the recommended pressure, adjusting the brakes, making sure the wheels are true, making sure all nuts and bolts are tightened to spec, making sure the shifting is smooth and operating correctly, clean and lube the drivetrain, giving the bike a light cleaning.
Tune-up Plus Package: $99
This service includes the standard Tune-up as well as, cleaning the drivetrain off of the bike, cleaning and polishing the bike, and waives the basic parts install fees. WAIVED FEES EXCLUDE: INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING, TRI-BIKES, AND TUBELESS TIRE SWAPS.
When dropping off the bike one of our service writers will go over the bike with you and make recommendations as to what should be done, which may increase the cost of any tune-up regardless of what level of tune-up has been discussed.
