Essential Repairs Only – COVID19 Update

3/31/2020
We are back in business today with a healthy crew ready to fix your bikes!
If you need anything like lights, locks or other essentials please visit our online shop or give us a call. We can ship items to your home or you can schedule a time to pick them up at the shop.
3/30/2020
Out of an abundance of caution, the shop is temporarily closed today. One of our staff members isn’t feeling well and we’re pausing our operations until we know more. The health of our staff, customers and community members is our #1 priority. Keep an eye on our social media pages.
Thank you for understanding, please be safe out there.
3/19/2020
The Community Cycling Center’s Bike Shop will be open by appointment for essential repairs only. This includes safety issues such as brake adjustments and emergencies such as flat fixes, but wouldn’t cover fine tuning shifting. As a shop we remain committed to keeping people on their bikes but we have to limit exposure for the safety of our staff and the general public. So if your bike just needs minor adjustments or a spring cleaning, you will have to until after the quarantine.

 

Bikes that need repairs can be dropped off by making a same-day appointment.  The appointment is for your arrival only and does not mean the repair will be completed on the spot. Email service@communitycyclingcenter.org or call 503-287-8786 with questions or to make an appointment.

 

Please maintain a six foot distance when dropping off bikes at the door. This can be accomplished by placing the bike in the rack near the east door on Alberta St. and stepping away. Taking credit card payment over the phone is preferable, but we can accept cash if that is the only option. Thank you for your patience during this trying time and stay healthy.

 

Stay safe out there. Our shop is open to “Essential Repairs Only” for now to help flatten the curve of infections, so we could use a little extra support.  Click here to donate to our emergency campaign or click here to purchase a gift certificate.

 

At Your Service

At our shop we offer a full range of maintenance and repair services. Whether your bike needs a flat fixed or a complete overhaul, our team of experienced mechanics has you covered. We also offer many programs for people living on low incomes, designed to bring pedals to the people – from our Earn a Bike program to our annual Holiday Bike Drive for kids. Since shop proceeds support these programs, your purchases help enrich our community by keeping these programs in motion.

Mechanics You Can Trust

Our mechanics are highly skilled and specialize in demystifying bicycle maintenance and repair. Not sure why your bike is making that noise? We’re happy to explain exactly what’s going on and give you tips for future maintenance (advice is always free during shop hours).

We Love ‘Em All

At the Community Cycling Center, we love all bikes equally and pride ourselves on our experience with all types. Whether you have a carbon fiber racing machine or a comfy cruiser for getting the groceries, you can trust that your ride will get the TLC it deserves – we’ll always treat your bike like it’s one of our own. Our mechanics have experience repairing every kind of bicycle, tandem, unicycle, and tricycle.

Selections from Our Labor Menu

Estimate: Free!

Estimates are always free at the Community Cycling Center bike shop. A resident mechanic will take 15 minutes to give you a thorough assessment of the services your bike needs and an estimate of the cost. Our friendly and professional mechanics will explain it all in a straightforward way. No over-the-top bike jargon – unless you ask for it!

Warranty

All repair services are covered by a 30-day warranty.

Minor Tune-Up: $70

This is a great service if you have a lightly used bike, and is an alternative to a full tune-up. This includes lubing the chain and cables, making minor adjustments to the brakes and gears, and minor truing of the wheels. Our mechanics will also check the adjustment and security of all bearing systems. This also includes a test ride to make sure everything is running smoothly. If your bike needs anything beyond a minor tune-up, we’ll let you know in the estimate we provide.

Major Tune-Up: $150

For a Major Tune we basically take the bike apart, clean it, and put it back together with all new cables and housing. A major tune up will ensure your bike’s brake and shifting systems feel as good as new. We true the wheels and grease/adjust all of the bearing systems(hubs, headset, bottom bracket) to keep things feeling smooth and prevent parts from unnecessarily wearing. The $150 labor fee also covers the installation of any parts that need replacing at that time(think wearable parts like brake pads, chains, cassettes,etc.). A major tune will guarantee your bike feels fantastic when you ride away!

Flat Fix: $12

If you hit a pothole or a gnarly shard of glass and have a flat, have no fear. We’ll replace the tube, air it up, and send you on your way. The price of a new tube is an additional $7.

These are our most popular services. For a full service menu and an estimate for the specific needs of your bike, stop by the shop!

Now for the ultimate question…

When Can I Have My Ride Back?

Depending on how much lovin’ your bike needs and our current shop schedule, repair times will vary from same-day service to two weeks. If you need a quick fix like a flat or a brake or derailleur adjustment, we can often do that on the spot and get you back on the road. Feel free to give us a call at 503-287-8786 for the scoop on wait time and line-up of other repairs our mechanics have going on. You can also bring your bike in and schedule an appointment with our experts – we’ll evaluate it and set up a time to get it repaired.
