Spring Tune Ups – get your bike in now!

It looks like spring is finally coming to Winnipeg, and that means we’ll soon be flooded with spring bike repair requests.  We’re happy to have your business and enjoy the work we put into getting your bike ready for the new season, but even with increased staff in the spring we always end up with a backlog of service requests.

With that said, as of the moment of this posting we have NO backlog.  That means if you bring your bike in today we should be able to get it back to you tomorrow (assuming, for instance, it doesn’t require parts that we don’t have in stock).  This could, and almost certainly will, change very soon so if you don’t want to have to wait for a week for us to have the chance to look at your bike get it in ASAP.

If you do end up waiting and you have to book an appointment for us to check out your bike at a later date it’s not the end of the world.  We’ll give you an appointment date and ask that you bring the bike in the day or two before that so we have the opportunity to get working on your bike first thing in the morning on the day of your appointment (our mechanics arrive in the shop before it’s open to customers) and in most cases you can pick your bike up later on the same day of your appointment, after we call you to tell you that the work is completed.  We like to have the bikes in and out of the shop as quickly as we can because with new bikes arriving daily and a lot of repairs on hand space is always at a premium in the spring.

Happy spring riding!
