What do you get for your bike service dollar(s)?


Minor Service- From $88

This is for clean bikes in good condition that require a check and adjustment of brakes and gears, headset, air and some chain lube to get them rolling, shifting and stopping smoothly again.

This service does not include component or parts replacement, or cleaning of the bike driveline. If your bike needs components repaired or replaced, you need a Standard Service

Standard Service- From $150

I wash your bike and inspect its overall condition:

  • Bottom Bracket (crank bearings) and Headset preload (steering bearings) are checked and adjusted

  • Gears and brake operation checked and adjusted.
