TUNE-UPS


Basic Tune-Up $65
This is a great option for bikes that have seen gentle use for weeks or years. Parts are not yet worn. And the bike is clean enough. Good for prepping your bike for another season. We take wheels off and adjust hub bearings, true wheels, and air tires. The shifter and brake cables are lubed. Brake pivots lubed and brake pads adjusted. Derailleur pivots lubed and shifting adjusted. Bottom bracket and headset bearings checked and adjusted as necessary.

Complete Tune-Up $85
This is a great option for a bike that is clean but needs some parts replaced during the tune-up process. A new chain, or brake pads, or a new wrap of handlebar tape.

Tune-Up and Cleaning $85
Some bikes need all the adjustments and lubrications of a Basic Tune-up, plus a cleaning.

Heavy-Tune-up and Cleaning $110
This is the option for bikes that have seen six months of commuting. They are dirty and grimey. Drivetrains need to be replaced, brakepads swapped. kinked cables replaced too. Maybe new rubber. We start with a thorough cleaning, often after an initial break-down/disassembly. Then tune the wheels and components as replacement parts are added.

Complete Overhaul $175
Everything above, and beyond. This is a complete tear-down of the bike before cleaning- Fenders, racks, handlebars, etc. And includes overhauls of the wheel bearings, bottom bracket and headset. Modern bikes with cartridge bearings don't need this as frequently, but still require bearing replacement from time to time.

Hub Overhaul (cup and cone or cartridge) $25
