bicycle repair shop

Nicer weather is on the way. Now is a really good time to bring your bike in for a Spring tune-up. You'll want it in top shape so as not to miss any warm, sunny days of riding. We can do a full tune-up starting at $50 for a single speed and $70 for a geared bike and in most cases have it finished in 3 days.* We work on ALL bikes, new, old, sporty and not so sporty like folding bikes, internally geared bikes, cargo bikes, and e-bikes. If your bike is beyond a tune up, we have a great selection of practical city bikes, with prices reduced on some.

A Little Lube Goes a Long Way July 30 2015

Chain squeakin' ? Pick up a bottle of Tri-Flow Superior Lubricant, put a drop on the rollers, and run it through (be sure to hold a rag beneath the chain.) Wipe any excess off and you're good to go. Also great on pivot points! Here's what Tri-Flow has to say: "High-grade petroleum oils provide optimum lubrication under extreme temperatures (-60 to 475°F) and humidity. Formulated solvents soften and remove dirt and contaminants, while special additives displace moisture and prevent rust and corrosion." Available at the shop in 2oz and 6oz bottles.
