During the COVID-19 Pandemic we are following the recommendations set out by the authorities while continuing to do our best to serve our customers.
This summarizes the relevant changes we have made around the workshop and to the service drop off / pick up procedure to keep you, our community and our staff safe.
- We may limit the number of people in the shop at times.
- There is a marked suggested entrance and exit.
- We encourage customers keep their time in the shop brief.
- Customers are encouraged to keep 6ft from other customers and staff.
- Service customers are encouraged to book their service online. See link on this page.
- Comprehensive “Tune-up” type services can be booked online with a specified turnaround window. All other piece-wise type services are drop-in only and will be done on a first-come-first-served basis with a best guess turnaround time.
- Service customers who booked online may leave their bike prior to their appointment or continue riding and get an automated reminder.
- It is recommended to wear a mask when in the store until we acheive the protection of a fully vaccinated population.
- Our front staff will be wearing masks at this time.
We appreciate and are amazed by the patience and flexibility shown by our customers to date. Thank you for continuing to support us!

Your Bike Working At Its Best - Build Your Own Service
The BYO Philosophy
The old bike shop “service menu” doesn’t serve the rider or the bike well. You get some of what you need and likely a bunch of extra stuff you don’t. It is rare that one of the available packages fulfills exactly your maintenance requirements.
Build Your Own Service means you get a catered service package based on what your bike needs to perform at its best. We will of course do a full inspection, let you know what we find, and work with you and your budget to get you the most value.

Frequently Asked Questions
When should I bring my new bike in for the first tune up?
After a couple of rides we would love to make some minor adjustments on your machine to make sure it is dialed. Then after 20 – 30 hours of riding you should bring your bike in for its first full tune up. Your first tune will have been booked in with our service department when you picked up your new bike – don’t worry we will send you a reminder! Remember, if you bought the bike from us, the first tune up (labour charge) is free. In season, this offer expires after 60 days.
Do you service E-bikes?
Yes! We’d be happy to service your E-bike. We are fully qualified to address any issue with Shimano and Bosch electric assist systems.
What is the turn around time for service?
This will vary through the year and will depend on what service your bike requires. We have two work streams to keep wait times down.
One is for comprehensive services where we check over the whole bike and cater a service to its needs and your budget. This is by appointment and bookings can be made online. You can ride right up until your appointment date and turnaround is +/- 4 days from the appointment date.
The second stream is for small piecewise work; in other words just a focusing on a few small requests without a comprehensive check over other areas of the bike. This is drop-in only (no appointment required) and is first-come-first-served. Turnaround is variable and we can give you a rough idea on drop off.
As always, we can do flat repairs, quick adjustments and give service advice just about any time.
Can you service my suspension?
Yes! We service the vast majority of suspension pieces through a combination of in-house, and our suspension service partners. Let’s get you sorted.
When should my suspension be fully serviced?
Each manufacturer has its own recommended number of hours. However, a quick rule of thumb is once a year if your ride 1-2 times a week in the season. If you ride more than that, or all year, let’s make a plan together to make sure you are getting the best out of your suspension. Also, to increase the time in between full services, we encourage you to get a lower service mid season.
Do you work on old, unloved bicycles?
Yes! We work on all bikes, all makes, all models, all colours, all modalities, all years. We love bikes! Bring it on!
I bought parts elsewhere, can you install them?
Absolutely! Come in to the shop or call to ask our service advisor about the labour charges associated with installing various parts.
