Do You Sell Bikes and Accessories?
In addition to repair, bike repair shops often sell bikes of all kinds, such as tandem, racing, mountain, dirt and road bicycles. They should also sell all the related accessories and safety gear equipment you need as a cyclist, such as helmets, knee and elbow pads, backpacks, gloves and water bottle holders. You may also find infant seats and child trailers.
Why Should I Bring My Bike to You?
Look for bike shops that offer perks for their customers, such as free minor adjustments, free basic fittings, free flat repair clinics and guaranteed low prices. You may also enjoy clearance events, sales of refurbished bikes at a discount, free shipping of bikes to the store for pickup, and more. Look for specialists trained in the type of bike you have, whether kids’, hybrid or dirt bikes.
What Repair Services Do You Provide?
Bike shops usually have technicians on staff who can address all of your bike repair and maintenance needs. They can provide parts replacement for items like pedals and kick stands, plus offer frame adjustments, gear work and flat tire patch jobs. Brake cable tightening, brake pad alignments, bracket installation, hub tension adjustment and handlebar wrapping may also be on offer.
