YOUR ONE-STOP SHOP

Our professional service staff is ready to work on all makes and models of bicycles. Whether it’s a gear adjustment or a major overhaul, you can count on us to do the job right the first time.

Because your time is important, appointments are encouraged. When you bring in your bike for service, we always start with a free, no-obligation estimate of the work that will be needed. One of our service professionals will discuss the problem with you and will carefully explain what work should be done, always respecting your choices and your budget.

FLAT TIRE?

Getting ready to ride and discovered a flat tire? Hit a pothole and your rim is out of true? 

You can't always plan when your bike needs attention. Feel free to just bring it in. If we can fix it on the spot, we will. And if we need more time, we'll let you know.

BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT

The best way to reserve a service slot is by calling your neighborhood Bike World and talking with an associate.
