Wrenching is what we love to do; it’s why we started this business. Bikes that work are the best, right? For us there’s nothing better than seeing you fall in love with your bike all over again.
(1) We will explain clearly what’s wrong with your bike and what we’re going to do to it;
(2) We won’t sell you service or parts that you don’t need;
(3) We will return your old parts or we will recycle/donate them at your request; and
(4) We will be nice.
We’re going to do more than you ask us to (at no additional charge) because that’s what happens at good bikes shops.
If you want to get us really excited then talk to us about Campagnolo or wheel building. We rock both. No joke.
Our base hourly rate is 75 bucks. That’s less than a lawyer makes and about enough for us to pay rent, pay bills and have a nice meal out once a month. Here’s what typical service costs:
