B I C Y C L E   T U N E - U P   P A C K A G E S

Qualifying bicycles are to be determined by the service writer only after the bicycle has been examined in our shop. Bicycles that do not qualify for a tune-up package are billed at our normal hourly rate. Tune-up packages include labor but do not include parts.

Basic tune-up

Always includes but is not limited to the following:

  • check & adjust hubs, adding grease if necessary
  • true wheels & check overall spoke tension
  • check & align rear derailleur hanger
  • check/clean/lube/adjust shifting and braking front and rear
  • check/adjust all bearing surfaces
  • visual inspection and safety check
  • general check, clean and lubricate all systems as needed to ensure the bicycle is working as intended and behaves reliably for a reasonable length of time
  • labor for most installations is included in the tune-up price, such as: chains, cassettes, cables & housing, brake pads, tires & tubes. 
  • labor for hub overhauls, bottom bracket removal & re-installation or overhaul, brake bleeds, and suspension service incur additional labor charges
  • bicycle is test ridden to ensure performance


$70
Advanced tune-up
The advanced tune-up package includes everything listed above in the Basic tune-up, but also includes all new cables and housing for both the shifting and braking systems. 
  • price not only includes the cost for the cables & housing but also includes the additional labor associated with sizing and cutting new housing
  • will be necessary if you have corroded or rusty brake or shift cables, and housing in otherwise poor condition. When cables & housing are in poor condition, it is difficult to tune the bicycle and expect it to work well for any reasonable length of time
  • bicycles with full length cable housing will incur a slightly additional charge for housing. Bicycles with internal cable routing can sometimes incur an additional charge for labor

$120
BMX or Single Speed Tune-up
Since these bicycles have no shifting systems, the cost of the basic tune up is reduced.

$45
Check Bike Over
Usually recommended before a big ride, race, out of town cycling trips, or for bikes that are in reasonably decent condition but need some fine tuning. Installations for some parts would likely be included.

$40
