Welcome to 2021!

Even though it is a new year, we are still operating with the pandemic in mind. This means curbside service (inside the shop is still closed to the public) and scheduled appointments for service assessments and tune-ups. 

We are, however, very caught up with service. Now is the time to have your bike in for maintenance and repairs before the Spring rush. We still ask that you prepare to leave your bike for at least a couple days while we assess the service that is needed.

Schedule Your Bike Service

We are a full service shop and service all makes and models of bicycles. At this time we are not accepting walk-ins for service. Please schedule a time in advance to bring your bike to the shop. Please note: We do not service motorized vehicles; no e-bikes, no e-assist, no e-scooters, etc.


A Legitimate Business

We are located in a stand alone building in beautiful downtown Carrboro, North Carolina. If you have placed an order with us, we are doing curbside pick-up or home delivery (via USPS, UPS, or FedEx) at this time. As a result of the ongoing pandemic, our sales floor is closed to the public and will remain closed until we feel it is safe to allow the public back inside. We assure you we are open!
