Big-Box Basic Tune-up Special — $15

For customers who buy a bike from a non-specialty store (like Canadian Tire, Walmart, Costco, etc.), we HIGHLY recommend bringing your bike in for an inspection and tune-up. These bikes are assembled by poorly-trained staff, not built by bike mechanics. This can lead to flaws like poor shifting, or even brake failure.

We offer a special discount on our Basic Tune-up to anyone who brings us a big-box bike with a receipt dated in the last 30 days, to try to ensure that everyone has a safe and reliable ride.
