Summer Is Here
Well, duh, it's June. We are running around with our heads cut off. Don't worry - we are working overtime to get your bike back to you as fast as possible.
While we are still offering same or next-day service on most minor repairs and adjustments, our tune-up schedule is overflowing. Ragbrai is coming close and it just around the corner so please plan accordingly.
Need that bike tuned up before your next ride? Plan on leaving it with us before you go on vacation or a time when you know you won't be riding it to minimize downtime. We do make appointments - just please remember to show up on time.
Thanks you for your patience and Happy Riding!
Pro Tip: put a note in your calendar to get regular maintenance done in the winter. This way your bike will be ready to go on the first nice day of the year. We do offer sale pricing on service packages in February :)
Ragbrai Is On The Way!
Get our from under that rock - RAGBRAI is a comin'! Coming to a neighborhood near you this year; Mason City, Waverly, Independence (just to name a few). Bret Michaels will be playing this year as well - if you're into that stuff :)
Get those training miles in now while you still can - the weather has been beautiful. Our service schedule is filling up fast so drop your bike off or make an appointment to make sure that your trusty ride is ready to go for the big event.
Never been on Ragbrai before? This year is a perfect chance to get a taste of all the excitement that Ragbrai has to offer. With options so close to home, how can you not want to get our there and join the fun.
