Our Service Rates

Our shiny collection of tools, waiting to awesome your bike.Repairs are handled on a first-come, first-served basis.  Appointments are not necessary nor are they taken.  We do our best to provide a fast and accurate estimate, however sometimes the estimate can only be given after the bike has a had a more thorough diagnosis.  This is often the case when we are called upon to 'figure out what's creaking.'

We've prepared this chart to provide a menu of our common bicycle services and repairs. Please contact us any time. Or, even better, bring your bike in to discuss your bicycle issues and find out which package or service is appropriate.  Our service entrance is adjacent to our parking lot.  Please leave your bicycle in our covered bike parking area when you come inside.  If you need immediate or rushed service to be ready for that big ride or event, please ask, and we'll do our best to fit you in (express service charge, AKA six-pack of microbrew, may apply).
