Service Department

Over the past 5 decades bicycles have evolved from simple 1 and 3-speed models to sophisticated computer-designed machines. Today, performing service on bicycles requires in-depth knowledge as well as the proper tools. For 38 years, Bicycle Garage has been performing repairs as simple as repairing a flat to complex frame repair. Our service staff has over 50 years of combined expertise, so you can be assured that your bicycle will be quickly and expertly serviced. We also fit bikes so you can get the most out of your bicycling experience.

Custom Wheel Building

Hand built wheels are one of the fastest ways a cyclist can improve the performance of any bicycle. Our experienced builders can build wheels on your hubs or with any combination of rims, hubs, spokes and lacing patterns you choose.
