Our Service Guarantees

24 hr. Turnaround for Tune-Up Packages and Most Repairs! At Epicenter Cycling we love to ride bikes. So, we know how traumatic it can be waiting for your bike to get serviced. That’s why when you bring your bike in for tune-ups or bike repairs, we’ll do our best to get it back to you by the end of the next day! If your bike needs some special order parts, we’ll do our best to complete your service within 24 hours of the parts arriving.

During Our Service Inspections... things may come up that we recommend you fix. We’ll tell you if it’s an immediate safety issue, or if it’s something you should get fixed or replaced to prevent future repairs. As always, we’re happy to give you good/ better/ best quotes, and leave it to you to decide which route you’d like to take. We’ll give it to you straight, and we’ll let you decide what’s best for your bike and for your wallet. It’s what we do.

We’ll Always Wait for Your Approval. Clear communication is important at our shop. We will always provide an estimate and wait for your approval before we service your bike. After all, that’s how WE would want to be treated! All estimates are free and they include a thorough safety inspection.

We’ll Stay in Contact. We’re awesome mechanics, but not the best psychics. Sometimes unforeseen complications can arise during your repair. If something unexpected does come up during a tune-up or bike repair, we’ll contact you immediately. And of course, we’ll let you know as soon as your bike is ready to go home. We keep careful notes regarding the work we do, and we’ll be happy to go over your bicycle’s medical file when you pick up your bike (or anytime).

You Get What You Pay For. Our Rates are a representation of the work we do. We go above and beyond when it comes to bike maintenance and repairs, because - just like with riding bikes - it’s not just about being fast. We’re all about getting you riding happily and safely every time you pedal out. Our mechanics have years of experience and industry training, and they take a lot of pride in what they do. Rest assured, you’re going to get the fantastic service that you paid for.

We Guarantee Our Work for 30 Days! If you’re not 100% satisfied with your tune-up or repair in the first 30 days, come back and see us. We want you to be happy with your bike, and our service!
