Bike Repair

When your bike is in need of repair and/or a little love, there’s no better place to bring it than Union Bicycle. We employ some of the most experienced, talented bicycle mechanics in the country. Whether a simple cable adjustment or a complex suspension repair, we have the expertise and experience to diagnose the problem, make the repair and stand behind our work.

Scheduling Your Bike Repair Service

Simple repairs like replacing a punctured tube or installing an accessory can generally be done while you wait. You should call ahead to make sure we have time to do your repair while you wait.

For most repairs you will need to leave your bike with us for a few days. When you bring your bike into our store, you will be given a repair assessment, price estimate and turnaround time for the repair. *In the event additional labor or parts are needed to complete the repair, prices may be adjusted and you will be notified.

New Bicycle 30-Day and 90-Day Tune-Up

Congratulations on the purchase of your new bicycle! Within the first 90 days after you receive your bicycle, you are entitled to one free bicycle tune-up. In this time, your new bicycle will experience a “break-in” period where all of the cables will stretch and the bearing assemblies (headset, bottom bracket, hubs) will settle in. You may notice that the gears begin to skip and the bicycle generally loosens up slightly. This is normal and will be adjusted during your free tune-up. No appointment is necessary for this tune-up, but Union Bicycle will have to keep your bicycle for 24 hours to complete the work.
