Hello folks, if you think you need a tune-up, or any repair you are welcome to bring in your bicycle when we are open so a mechanic can assess the work needed on your bicycle. We are currently booking tune-ups 2 weeks out. (early October). Based on the assessment we can either schedule a tune-up for a future date, or if less work is required take in your bicycle as a walk in. We can take care of basic walk-in repairs any day we are open, again these are on a first come, first served basis. We tend to fill up each days schedule within the first four hours of opening. Any questions please come in, or give us a call. Thank you, and keep the rubber-side down.
