Tune Ups

Tune Ups

The typical turn around on most tune ups can be 2 full weeks, though early completion is quite common.

Basic Tune & Boxed bike assembly rate $85

-This tune is the foundation of everything following. It is included in the following two. My basic is quite thorough and also affordable.

Hanger alignment (all other frame corrections are extra)
and much more

Holding Fee

Applied 5 working days following the verbal or email notification of the completion of your ticket, you will be charged an additional $5/day your bike is left in my little shop.

Therefore a working telephone or email address is necessary to leave your bike for work with me. Paying up front for work does not protect you from late fees or rush my labor.

After 30 days in storage, the bicycle is considered abandoned and will be recycled or given to someone who will use it. You will not get refunded.

Tasks I Do Not Do

– Put motors on bicycles

– Assemble tricycles or service them due to space

– Work on strollers, wheel chairs, electric scooters, skateboards, or “onewheels.”

Work on e-bikes

Suffer fools who try to handle me or my staff. You will be rudely told to kindly fuck off

You will notice that none of my tune ups include any parts, not even cables or bar tape etc.. That is because while the sale of labor is not taxed, product is, so for ease of my accounting and legal standing, I steer clear of “bundling” parts up with labor.
