About our Repairs

The labour charges listed above do not include any parts which may be necessary to complete your bike's maintenance. When your bike is dropped off, a service writer will perform a check-over of your bike, and inform you of any possible parts that may need to be replaced. Should an issue come up during the maintenance process, you will be contacted regarding any possible increase in cost.

If you wish to schedule an appointment, call or use this form. You may need to drop by with the bike in any case, so we can assess the repair properly, especially during the spring/summer when our technicians are quite busy.

Turnaround Time - New for 2017 - 48 hour turnaround time*

We strive to get our customers back in the saddle within 48 hours of dropping off your bike*, and unlike other shops, we don't charge you extra. If we can fix it on the spot, we will.  This is our commitment to all of our customers as we want to get you back in saddle a soon as possible!

* The only hold up one may expect would be availability of parts required for your repair.  If the parts are in stock, it won't be a problem, and we do inventory the largest parts selection in Atlantic Canada, so the odds are pretty good.  If we don't have the parts, we will order them ASAP so as to not hold up your repair.

Drop our Service Manager, Dwayne, a line if you have a question or call us - 902-425-1756.

Insurance Quotes

Our service writers and technicans are professionally trained and certified to quote on Insurance Claims on all bicycle makes and models, not just the ones we sell. We will deliver a professional quote to both the client and insurance provider and work with both parties to their satisfaction.  We can offer direct billing with the insurance provider so the client can get out on their bike as quickly as possible.  We charge $50 for this service.

Custom Work and Advanced Service

Advanced level work is performed on a case by case basis at an hourly rate of $60. This allows us to provide our customers with accurate and honest pricing based on the actual amount of time invested in servicing their bike. Examples of work that would be charged at this rate would be projects, overhauls, restorations, problem solving, custom work, and fabrication (less the cost of materials).

We also specialize in suspension and hydraulic service, such as brake bleeding, pivot replacement, or damper overhauls. We encourage proper hydraulic maintenance; it will keep your bike running smooth and safely over a prolonged period of time, and save you expensive future repair costs!

Our service staff is professionally trained and certified to work on all bicycle makes and models, not just the ones we sell. And every member of our service team participates in training sessions with factory service techs several times each year. So, whether it’s a minor tune-up or a major overhaul, you can count on us to do the job right the first time, every time.

We love building wheels, and with thousands of wheelsets worth of experience, we're pretty good at it too! Come in for a consultation and see how we can tailor a wheelset to your specific needs at a lower price, and at less weight than the prebuilt competition!

Wheel builds are done at a flat rate of $60 each.
