Most Requested Services:

Up righting your bike:

*One of our most popular services! We remove your old handlebars, stem, brake levers, grips, and cable system. Then we install a new upright handlebar, stem, brake levers, grips, shifters, and cables/housing.


*We strongly recommend replacing any worn parts, or just having a tune up with this service.


Check Up/Mini Tune Up:

*This is what many shops refer to as a tune up, we don't think this is the case.

*Mini tune ups are a “peace of mind service” for low miles, or low miles since the last tune up, bikes in good shape that just need a minor bit of lubing and adjusting before starting the riding season. We will spend up to an hour going over your bike making sure everything is tight and adjusted correctly to make your bike function as best it can.

Checkups are $60


Tune ups:

*Tune ups are fully comprehensive services that include servicing all systems: lube, grease, and adjust all serviceable bearings, braking and shifting systems, safety check, and thorough testing to make sure you bike works as well as possible and won’t prematurely wear. Replacing worn parts, or installing accessories can have an additional labor charge, usually at a discounted rate of up to half off our a la cart prices.

$100(single speeds). 

$155 (geared bikes).


Full overhauls:

*The goal of this service is to return your bike to “like new” condition.

*Overhauls include: stripping the bike to the frame, cleaning the frame and fork, cleaning/adjusting and/or replacing all drivetrain parts, overhauling or replacing all the bearing systems, adding all new cables and housing and brake pads. Essentially making your bike like new!

$225 (single-speeds).

$325 (geared bikes).


Assembling a bike in a box:

*New in the box bikes don't come assembled correctly, often missing grease and with the bearings out of adjustment. This causes premature failure. Bikes in the box need full tune ups! When you buy a bike from a shop this has already been done and that price is factored in. Buying bikes online only seems like a good deal, but the savings come at your expense. We don’t ever recommend buying bikes online.

$120 to slap it together as is from box with no warranty.(not recommended).

$225 fully gone through to make it as good as possible (single-speeds).

$325 fully gone through to make it as good as possible (geared bikes).
