Services:

We are a full-service bicycle workshop. We primarily focus on repairs, although we have a limited selection of the most useful accessories (helmets, lights, and locks), as well as a small selection of new bicycles for sale. Rarely, we will have used bicycles, but call or email ahead for our selection. For a larger selection of new bicycles for sale, please check out our partner organization, Crimson Bikes.

For tune-ups, please call or email ahead to schedule an appointment. Turnaround time for tune-ups varies considerably depending on the season, but expect to leave your bike at least overnight, typically 2-3 days. We may do same-day tune-ups during the winter; in the spring and fall, tune-ups can take up to a week or longer.
