Our Repair Service
Have your bike tuned or repaired by our expert mechanics! Click here to make an appointment on Calendly for the most efficient service, or drop your bike off at the shop during our open hours.
Appointments are given priority, and are usually completed on the same day or next day after drop-off.
We recommend making an appointment, but walk-ins are always welcome. For very quick repairs like flat tires, we can often do it while you wait. For more involved repairs, you will be placed at the end of the line (first come, first served), and there may be a wait of several days.
Estimates for repair appointments are free.
All work performed (except flat repair) is guaranteed for 30 days.
One of the most frequent questions we get is "how much does a tune-up cost?" and the answer is... it depends! In contrast with how a lot of other bike shops do it, we offer all of our repair services a la carte, to ensure that the work you pay for specifically matches the work your bike actually needs. To make this work smoothly, we give free repair estimates on the spot. The work itself may be scheduled for a later date, but price quotes can be quickly given for walk-ins. We have an extensive labor menu that determines our pricing - too much to publish here - but here are some of the costs of common jobs:
- Flat fix: $11 + cost of tube (~$9)
- Brake pad replace (includes adjustment): ~$10 parts + $17-22 labor
- Brake adjust: $13-20 labor
- Brake cable replace and adjust: $4 parts + $20 labor
- Derailleur adjust: $17-24
- Derailleur cable replace and adjust: $4 parts + $24 labor
- Replace chain: $16 + cost of chain
- Basic wheel true: $20
- Hub cone adjust: Front $13, rear $19
- Tape road bars: $22
- Bleed hydraulic disc brakes: $33
The final cost of your repair job will be determined by your mechanic.
If you have been involved in an accident and need documentation for insurance purposes we charge $15-$30. This is refundable with any repairs made on the bike.
After nearly two decades of having a separate repair shop on the East side of Shattuck Avenue, we have officially closed the doors to our Annex. All repairs will take place at our main store at 1988 Shattuck Avenue. Thank you for your memories with us, and we will see you across the street!
