How Does It Work?

We know it’s a unique setup. Here’s how it works:

  1. Book an appointment online (click here). (NOTE — WE CURRENTLY OPERATE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY — please see the front page of this website for details).
  2. WEAR A MASK OR FACIAL COVERING when you bring us your bike; we’ll go through it together and see what it needs.
  3. Leave your bike with us – an hour for small jobs, a day or two for tuneups. (WAIT TIMES MAY BE LONGER DUE TO CORONAVIRUS)
  4. Return to claim your bike. You’ll think it’s new!
