Why is our $250 overhaul the best in town? Because it includes a free followup visit and spring cleanup roughly 90 days later.
An overhaul will return your bike to top-notch condition, with every bearing serviced or replaced as needed, wheels trued, cables replaced as necessary, and shifting and braking tuned to the best of the equipment’s ability. Stated another way, as one Yelp reviewer put it: “Had a full overhaul on my commuter bike… came back to me like new, actually better than new.”
Are there more benefits to be had? Yes. Since we’re going to be taking the bike apart and putting it back together, an overhaul is the absolute perfect time to save on labor charges and obtain good advice on upgrades and conversions, to optimize how the bike fits you, to add racks and bags, and to winterize your bike with fenders, a dyno hub and lights that’ll never need batteries, mudflaps, fresh-scented new tires with reflective side stripes for carrying on with your mad cycling habit through the dark months. And so on. About 3 months later, we’ll clean the bike of its winter grit and grime, check the bike over, and make any necessary minor adjustments.
Details: Parts are additional; assume an average of $80-$100 for replacement parts, possibly including ball bearings and cones, brake pads, chains/cassettes/chainrings, bottom brackets, cables, grips/tape, or others. More details: The mechanic performing the work will inspect the entire bike for wear or damage and make appropriate decisions and recommendations as to whether each part is safe. No work will be performed or parts replaced that exceed the initial estimate given except by approval of the bike’s owner. To minimize your bike’s downtime, we recommend you call ahead to make an appointment, though we do accept drop-ins. 503 954-2039. The best detail of all: your bike will feel like new again. Or maybe better than new.
