COMPLETE BICYCLE OVERHAUL-$150-$225
You have invested hard earned money on your bicycle, keep it performing the way it should with a Complete Bicycle Overhaul.
When Brent started as a mechanic in the late 80's all overhauls were the same. The bicycle was cleaned, all hub, headset, bottom bracket and pedal bearings were cleaned and repacked, derailleurs and brakes were adjusted, Freewheel flushed with Phil Wood oil, wheels trued and, if needed, new tires, tubes, grips and or bar tape was installed.
If you have a older bicycle from this era this is still the case. Modern bikes have changed quite a bit though and so has the overhaul.
On a modern full suspension bike the overhaul ($225) includes a thorough cleaning of all components, replacing fork seals and oil, air can seals and oil (overhaul price is for service work only, seals are not included), brake bleeding and adjustment, derailleur adjustment and hanger alignment, thorough wheel truing and spoke tension inspection, tubeless sealant inspection and re fresh (sealant not included), complete bearing inspection and adjustment (if possible) and a nut, bolt and brake rotor inspection to be sure everything is safe.
Many modern sealed cartridge type bearings are non adjustable. Sometimes the seals can be carefully removed and the bearings re greased but not always. These types of bearings generally are just removed and replaced. We will inspect all these bearings when you drop off your bike and will add new bearings to the estimate if needed. There is no additional charge to install new bearings, just the cost of the parts.
Hardtail mountain bikes with a front fork only will get a reduced price ($185) and bikes with no suspension will get get an even greater reduced price ($150).
Dropper posts are a whole other animal. We will inspect them and add air or replace cables if needed but getting inside and rebuilding them is not included in the overhaul. We offer this as a separate service on most popular dropper posts. 90 day guarantee on all work.
