SAVE ON YOUR SERVICE TICKET

Tuning a bicycle is less like fixing a household appliance, and more like tuning a musical instrument. It requires the mechanic to have certain concrete technical skills, but also a good ear, a judicious touch and not a small amount of finesse. If you haven’t had your bike in for an annual check up, now is the time to make sure your chains not worn out, your brake pads are okay, and everything is running smoothly. Stop by for a standard tune up this month and mention this blog to receive 10% off parts on your bill.
