Why does a bike need service?
Your spring starts with a brand new bike. You head out on your first ride and you feel the wind through your hair and the sun on your face. Life is great. You carefully carve time out of your schedule to ride your bike more. Before you know it you are doing 50, 100, 200 miles a week or more. Sun, rain, dirt, pavement, wind and maybe even some snow. You ride through it all. Your bike gets dirty, you get dirty. Longer rides require more nutrition which means you're probably going to spill some sports drink or a gel while nearing the bonk zone. It gets all over you and your bike, you wipe it off when you get home, you keep riding. Slowly your parts get dirtier and dirtier and stickier and stickier. You don't notice until you jump into your big ring.....you try to jump into your big ring and chunk chunk CHUNK! You are stuck in your middle ring or maybe even your chain falls off.
You love your new bike but slowly it breaks down over time. We barely notice it...until....we get it tuned up again. Preventative maintenance on your bike is important. It is going to get you out on your bike and down the road and back again. Not just today but tomorrow too. We've been serviceing bikes for over 25 years. We see it happen on all sorts of bike rides and races. The morning of an event someone grabs their bike and that's when they notice that tire has a cut in it, the chain isn't shifting well. We don't want you to worry about those things when you ride. We want you to know that your bike is ready to go when you are.
Take care of your bike before it needs. There is a list of things at the bottom of this page that you can check yourself. We are also willing to help you....we want you to love the ride.
