Tune-Ups

A basic tune-up once a year can go a long way towards extending the life of any bicycle. It can make an old bike run like new, and prevent minor problems from becoming major ones.

You do NOT need an appointment to get a tune-up. Just bring your bicycle in. At that time, we'll look it over and make a recommendation on what Tune-Up Service Package is needed, as well as any a la carte items that are not included in a tune-up.

You will then receive an estimate for the cost and time required for your tune-up.

We also offer pickup and delivery service for additional fees.
