Tune up options

Expert mechanics service what we sell in our four-stand workshop, and also offer general tune-ups, repair, and consultation on all kinds of bicycles. We specialize in modern internal hub gearing, generator lighting, and modifications for greater comfort and utility.

Please bring us your bike as a first step; no appointment is necessary. We'll inspect it to recommend specific services or parts, and schedule a time to perform the work. The menu below lists labor rates for common services, not including parts. Quotations are not final before we physically inspect your bike.

We will ask you to leave your bike with us until the next available appointment. This can be anywhere from hours to weeks away, all depending on the nature of the work and the highly mysterious forces that govern bike shop service loads. Drop-in and while-you-wait work happens sometimes for minor jobs, but it's never wise to count on it, especially in dryer months. If you can't leave your bike until the scheduled time, return the day of the appointment. If you ride here, we can often loan you one of our rental bikes until yours is ready, free of charge (subject to availability).

We never schedule mechanical work on weekends, when all hands turn to sales support. We do not charge labor to install accessories on bikes if purchased at the same time that you purchase your bicycle.
