Up righting your bike:
*One of our most popular services. we remove your old handlebars, stem, brake levers, grips, and cable system. Then we install a new upright handlebar, stem, brake levers, grips, shifters, and cables/housing.
*We strongly recommend replacing any worn parts, or just having a tune up done with this service.
Check Up/Mini Tune Up:
*This is what many shops refer to as a tune up.
*Mini tune ups are a “peace of mind service” for low miles, or low miles since the last tuned up bikes in good shape that just need a minor bit of lubing and adjusting and safety checking before starting the riding season. We will spend up to an hour going over your bike making sure everything is tight and adjusted correctly to make your bike function as best it can.
Checkups are $69
*Tune ups are fully comprehensive services that include servicing all systems: lube, grease, and adjust all serviceable bearings, braking and shifting systems, safety check, and thorough testing to make sure you bike works as well as possible and won’t prematurely wear. Replacing worn parts, or installing accessories can have an additional labor charge, usually at a discounted rate of up to half off our a la cart prices.
$165 (geared bikes).
*The goal of this service is to return your bike to “like new” condition.
*Overhauls include: stripping the bike to the frame, cleaning the frame and fork, cleaning/adjusting and/or replacing all drive-train parts, overhauling or replacing all the bearing systems, adding all new cables and housing and brake pads. Essentially making your bike like new!
$399 (geared bikes).
*This would be a great time to get a fresh color coat and getting some frame modifications done! See our sections on custom modifications/addition of braze-ons for pricing. See additional costs related to powder coating/painting below.
Most Minor adjustments:
Most minor adjustments are $20, this includes tuning up or adjusting most any one thing: such as adjusting a rear derailleur that doesn’t shift quite right or adjusting and tightening up a loose brake or taking the play out of a loose bearing system such as your headset or hub.
We have a minimum fee for all smaller jobs: such as installing a new inner tube/fixing a flat, or installing a new seat or seat post or kickstand, or brake pads or chain. Pretty much any quick little job that doesn’t take a whole lot of tuning up and adjusting.
Installing or overhauling any single system:
Overhauling or installing any single system would be for example replacing a dead headset or bottom bracket bearing on your bike. It would include removing the old parts, installing the new one(s) and adjusting them correctly. Or in the case of installing a new brake, shifter or derailleur it would include all that and either lubing and adjusting the cable or replacing the cable and housing too!

Installing fenders correctly on a bike is the single hardest thing we do! And while some fenders such as name brand inexpensive plastic ones might go on without too much of a fight in just 20 minutes or so, some much more expensive name brand metal fenders have taken us up to a full 8 hours to get installed perfectly!!!!
Most plastic fenders
Velo Orange fenders
Dynamo wiring/ installing dynamo lights or Sine Wave chargers is pretty tricky and hard too. Most of the wiring we do is on custom bikes with internal wiring guides and holes inside the frame fork and fenders. These prices are the maximum we charge in such instances.
*We often give discounts on wiring for simple jobs that don’t have to be run internally. These discounts are at our discretion and not guaranteed.
Single dynamo light or accessory

Build a bike up from a bare frame:
*without overhauling old parts
$299 (geared bikes).
Assembling a bike in a box:
*New in the box bikes don't come assembled correctly, often missing grease and with the bearings out of adjustment. This causes premature failure. Bikes in the box need full tune ups, if not full overhauls with frame alignment! Many new bikes/frames have explicitly state that their warranty is voided if you don't have this done before ridding. When you buy a bike from a shop this has already been done and that price is factored in. Buying bikes online only seems like a good deal, but the savings come at your expense. We don’t ever recommend buying bikes online.
