Maintenance for Your New Bike
On the surface, a bicycle can seem like a pretty simple thing; you hop on it, start pedaling, and go. However, without routine maintenance your bike's performance will soon start to decline and you will notice that it doesn't ride "the way it used to." The same rules apply to automobiles; imagine simply getting in your car, turning the key and driving without ever getting the oil changed, checking tire pressure, or having that 30,000 mile tune up.

So, here's how we can help...
Tune-up and Adjustment Services
Bicycles are full of moving parts that each require their own unique adjustments and maintenance schedule. While your tires may last 2000 miles, your chain may only make it 1000 miles before it needs replacement. When you bring your bike into Race Pace for service we will provide you with a free estimate and assess the overall condition of the bike. Next, we will discuss a plan of action to service your bike in order to address its needs, which often times will include a variety of options depending on your situation. Lastly, we will perform the agreed-upon service and make sure to road test your bike to ensure whatever adjustments were made have solved your particular issues.
Installation of Parts & Accessories
Whether you ride your bike for exercise, racing, training, commuting to work, or simple pleasure you will eventually need to replace some parts. Parts break, parts wear out, accidents happen; we understand and take pride in offering a huge selection of replacement parts and accessories. Thinking of upgrading your drivetrain? Or maybe accessorizing your bike for night time commuting? We have you covered!
Cleaning and Detailing
Keeping your bicycle clean can make all the difference in the world. When a bike's drivetrain is clean and properly lubricated it will allow you to get the most out of your bicycle's performance. A clean and properly lubricated chain will last much longer before needing replacement. A common occurrence is when contamination like dirt/water/sweat/sports drink get into a bike's cables and housing and cause poor braking/shifting performance. These same contaminants will find their way into a bike's bearing systems and can cause severe damage if a bike is not kept clean, lubricated and adjusted properly.
Hydraulic Brake Services
From mountain to road and touring to cyclocross; the world of disc brakes is always changing and evolving. We strive to keep up to date on all the latest disc braking systems by training our staff and routinely servicing all makes and models of disc brakes.Having the right tools and expertise is critical when bleeding and servicing disc brakes.
Electronic Systems Services
Over the last 20 years, bicycle gear systems have changed and evolved dramatically. In the early days bikes did not have gears, and as the years went by you started seeing more and more bikes outfitted with different shifting systems. Today it iscommonplace to see bicycles with a wide range of gears that are available at many different price points. The latest evolution in bicycle gear systems is electronic shifting. Whether it's Shimano or Campagnolo, we are trained in the latest technology. Electronic shifting is reliable, user friendly, and lightweight. Battery life is VERY long and does not require daily/weekly charging like cell phones.
Mountain bikes have come a long way in a very short amount of time. In the not too distant past they used to feature rim brakes, minimal front suspension, narrow handlebars, long stems and an extremely hunched over riding position. As the years have gone by, all of these things have become obsolete. Leading the charge is the way a mountain bike's suspension system functions and performs. Full suspension mountain bikes are very common to see on the trails, as are longer-travel front suspension bikes. Today's suspension forks and shocks are extremely complex and intricate pieces of engineering, chock full of technology. They are by far the most involved piece of machinery on a mountain bike and thus require a special dedication to maintenance and servicing.
Custom Wheel Services
All bicycles have wheels, and they come in many different sizes and configurations. Wheels have a major impact on the way a bike rides and performs. Wheels are built and developed for a wide variety of applications from climbing the French Alps on a 15 pound road bike, to riding across a continent as part of a 100 pound loaded touring bike. If you are dreaming of building some new wheels, let us help you! We regularly build custom wheelsets that are specifically tailored to your exact needs. Hubs, spokes, rims, nipples, weight, durability, performance, and of course price are all variables that we will be happy to discuss!
Custom Bikes & Frame Services
You dream it, we do it! No matter what your needs are with your frame or bicycle we will be glad to help you attain your goals. At the heart of every bicycle is it's frame. The frame provides all the attachment points for components and bearing surfaces. In order for a bike to operate at it's full potential the frame needs to be in proper alignment and well cared for.
