Tune ups

Basic Tune-Up

Get your ride up to full speed

$110 ($99 for our new bike clients after the first 500 mile free tune up*)
If you are riding your bike regularly, a tune-up should be performed at least once per year for weekend riders, and twice per year for daily commuters. A tune-up includes all adjustments of the brakes, drivetrain, bearing systems, a basic wheel true, and a safety check on all bolts. Also, an inspection and cleaning of all electrical connections.


Complete Tune-Up

Includes drivetrain cleaning, a full wheel true & a service unit performance optimization

$200 ($175 for our new bike clients after the first 500 mile free tune up*)
More comprehensive work should be performed once per year for daily commuters and serious recreational riders, or every 1000 miles. Grit and grime can build up on your drivetrain and brakes slowing you down and causing premature wear of components. Freshen up your bike with a full cleaning and lubrication of all the primary components on your bicycle to ensure that they continue to work at peak performance. A full wheel truing is preformed to ensure free running brakes, a long lifed wheel set. Installation of new parts like brake pads or cables is included, as is inspection and cleaning of all electrical connections. It is usually a good idea to ask for a service unit tune up at the same time. 


Service Unit cable/interface Tune-up

Troubleshoot an issue or customize your bike's to perform optimally for you.

$25 Attaching a diagnostic service unit interface to adjust performance up to 15 mins.
