It happens every year around April and May. You wake up one day and take a peek outside. You see the snow has melted so you check the weather online. The week looks promising with temps between the 40s and 50s. If you haven’t been riding much through the treacherous winter, you get excited at the idea of riding again. Finally breaking a bad case of cabin fever, you grab your bike from your basement/garage and bring it over to your local bike shop. Then you realize that everyone else in Madison is thinking the same thing you are and you have to wait a couple of weeks to get your bike back. Oof.
So here’s a friendly reminder to bring your bike in now! If you’ve been riding it this past year, your bike(s) most likely need some repair work. Advantages of taking it in now? In Spring and Summer, you don’t have to deal with the long repair wait! For most of the busy season our tune up cue can be 2 – 3 weeks long. If you bring it in now, we will do a free check over in the Spring. If the bike wasn’t ridden in the snow or doesn’t show a tremendous amount of use, we will lubricate and grease components as necessary at no charge. Turn around time right now is about 2 days (depending on if we have to order parts or not). If you have gotten a full tune up or restoration by us this year, we will knock 15% off your next full tune. Remind your family and friends!
We’re keeping ourselves busy with some great new bike builds and are very excited for Winter riding and the upcoming Spring.!
