Repairs

Small jobs like flat fixes brake adjustments and wheel replacement can be done same-day, without an appointment. If you have a narrow time frame, please call ahead to let us know you’re coming! We can try to turn these small jobs around in an hour or less. This may not apply in the final hour before closing or on weekends.

With an appointment, larger jobs can be done same-day; we understand many of our customers use their bicycle as a primary mode of transportation, and we are proud to offer this service. During peak season, the next available day for a larger job may be as a few business days out. Please plan ahead by calling or visiting our stores, or use the online appointment tool to the right.

Labor Rates

We are a full-service shop and can repair any bicycle, tricycle, trailer, stroller, wheelchair, or human-powered vehicle, including those with electric-assist. For the health and safety of our customers and staff, and as per OSHA ventilation requirements, we cannot allow gas-powered motors in our stores. In addition to our tune-up packages, we can also “spot tune” your bike to address specific issues. Please bring your bike into the store for a comprehensive estimate on any repair. While there are too many labor rates to list them all, below are our standard starting rates for some of the most common jobs we perform:

Small jobs:

Flat fix: $6. This does not include the cost of an inner tube; most tubes are between five and eight dollars, depending on size and valve type. We endorse the practice of patching tubes, sell patch kits for two dollars, individual patches for thirty cents, and tubes of vulcanizing fluid for three dollars. We do not offer patching as a service (and even if we did, it would cost more than a tube). While most flats can be fixed simply by cleaning the tire and installing a tube, sometimes we need to replace your tire (options starting around $20), rim tape (four dollars), or a rubber rim strip (just a buck).

Brake adjust or pad replacement: $6-$15. Price is for labor only, per wheel. Rates vary based on brake system type (Caliper, linear-pull, cantilever, disc). Keep in mind that rim brakes depend on a wheel with correct bearing and spoke tension. Brake pads start at $6/wheel for rim brakes and $14/wheel for discs.

Bearing adjust: $8-$15. To extend the lifetime of your bicycle’s components (and your own), bearing systems (headset, hubs, bottom bracket) must be at the proper tension. This is not a simple torquing of bolts, but a precision threshold adjustment that often requires special tools.

Wheel true or spoke replacement: $12-$20. The laws of the universe dictate that, occasionally, through no fault of your own, you will lose a sock, forget somebody’s birthday, or break a spoke. While we can’t help with the first two, we can with the latter. Spokes start at $0.75. If you’ve broken more than three or your rim is bent, we recommend replacing or re-lacing the wheel (see below).

Tune packages:

Minor Tune: $59. A great option for a bike that’s been in storage for awhile or a new-to-you bike that could use a professional once-over. This service includes checking bearing tension, truing both wheels, adjusting brakes and derailleurs, checking torque spec on all fittings, and some cleaning.

Major Tune: $99. For bikes that get ridden regularly, particularly in foul weather, and need parts replaced, the Major Tune is a smart annual service. It includes everything in the Minor, as well as a removal and deep clean of the drivetrain (cranks, chain, cassette), the additional labor for installing replacement parts (cables, housing, brake pads), and a more thorough cleaning of the frame while it’s stripped.

Overhaul: $149. For bikes in need of restoration, super-high-mileage bikes, or for migrating components from one frame to another, an Overhaul includes everything in a Major Tune as well as the disassembly, cleaning, and re-assembly of all bearing systems (hubs, headset, bottom bracket).

Mountain Bike Services:

Plan on adding at least one of these to your trail bike’s next tune-up:

Suspension Fork: $50. Includes an oil change as well as the labor to replace seals and wipers. Figure about $35 for parts and another five bucks for oil.

Rear Shock: $45. Includes removal, cleaning, and the labor to replace O-rings. Figure about twenty bucks for parts.

Volume spacer install: $15. We have volume spacers for Fox and RockShox air forks and rear shocks to fine tune your suspension’s performance. These can be installed independently from performing other suspension services. Parts are just a few bucks.

Clutch service: $15. Shimano clutch-type rear derailleurs need to be adjusted periodically. Performing this services ensures the best chain tension, smooth shifting, and prevents chainsuck and droppage.

Hardtail overhaul: $200. Includes everything in a standard bike overhaul as well as suspension fork service and clutch labor.

Full suspension overhaul: $260. Includes everything in the hardtail package, plus rear shock service, and a full inspection of all moving parts in the rocker assembly and the labor to replace any bad bearings.

Specialties:

Wheel Build: $45. Are you a heavier rider? Wear our the brake track on your rim? Upgrading to a dynamo? Need a bomb-proof wheelset for your touring rig? Have a set of Campy sheriff-stars trapped in tubular hoops that you want laced to clinchers? No machine-built wheel can compare to the durability or custom options we offer in hand-build wheels. Let us help you choose the perfect hub, spokes, and rim for your needs and bring it up to perfect tension, and we’ll guarantee our build with free truing and spoke replacement for the life of the wheel.

Assembly or box for shipping: $60. Order your bike online? Manufacturers require professional assembly for their warranty to be valid. Buy it at a department store? Few (if any) are assembled correctly. Mailing to or from another place? Travel logistics are complex enough without the chore of boxing/unboxing a bike yourself. Whatever the case, we’re here to help! Call ahead to arrange delivery directly to or from our stores.

Custom fender install: $25-$60. Need to squeeze fenders on your road bike? Trying to commute on your 29’er, but it doesn’t have eyelets? We have all the adapters and know all the tricks for making any bicycle “Oregon-friendly.”
