Our famous Bike Tune-up
At Colorado Springs Bike Shop, we take bike repair seriously. Your safety and enjoyment on your bike is very important to us. We believe our Tune-up is the best in the business and a great value, and so do our customers. They travel from all over the region to get their bikes tuned here, and return year after year.
Our bicycle tune-up is an essential service and should be performed at least once a year to keep your bike running smoothly, twice a year if you ride every day or log lots of miles. Over 50 checks and adjustments will be performed to your bike during our tune-up to ensure it rides and looks like new again.
