Bike Repair and Service
We are bike repair and service specialists
We have years of experience working on all types of bicycles from vintage velos to the latest, top-of-the-line race rigs. Let us put this to work for you! Below are our standard service and tune up packages, but we also work on specific items as needed.
Free and Honest Bike Work Estimates
Your bike may not need a full tune up. Bring in your trusted steed and we'll look it over. You may only need a couple of minor adjustments to get back to pedaling bliss. If you need, we can give you a free itemized estimate to give a more full picture of what is necessary and what it will cost. We're not into over charging people, so we can focus on only what you need today and save the luxury upgrades for later.
