Note about tune-ups. Paying for individual repairs provides more bang for your buck than a "tune-up." Much of the cost of a tune-up is cleaning time which requires no tools and bike owners can do themselves. However if you want us to do it, we charge $50 for a tune-up.
Note about bike cleaning. "Cleaning the bike adds to its life and performance by removing dirt, grime, salt and grit. Washing also allows you to more closely inspect the frame and component parts. Keeping the bike clean also adds to one's feeling of wellbeing. Although cleaning helps the bike's performance, overzealous washing and rinsing can wash out grease from bearings."
