Experienced Bicycle Mechanic for Repairs and Restorations at Blue Cycle
Blue Cycle services all brands and models of bikes when you need bicycle repairs and restorations. We offer Blue Care coverage on the bikes we sell which means we will tune your bike and check brakes and gears for free and as often as you choose for the life of your bike. Our competitors only offer one free tune up and check within six weeks of purchase making our customer service second to none.
Even though we provide bicycle repairs and tune-ups, you can do some quick maintenance and inspections to keep you on the road or trail. The inspections will make you safer during your ride and increase the longevity of your bike.
The mnemonic device ABCs reminds you to check your air, brakes, and chain. Ensure your tyres are inflated to the correct pressure and compress your brakes to ensure the mechanisms are working correctly. Inspect the chain for cleanliness and that it is properly lubricated and contains no kinks that can cause it to slip off the gears.
Lubrication prevents excessive deterioration due to friction and corrosion and keeps parts from locking up. Lube the moving parts then wipe off excess in the same order, so it has time to penetrate. Be careful because too much lubrication attracts dirt and debris which can cause wear.
Bolts that hold your bike together can wiggle loose over time which can cause damage and safety hazards. Ensure all bolts are tightened to the correct torque to prevent issues. Be careful not to over tighten because it can damage the components as well.
Clean your bike on a regular schedule paying special attention to the drivetrain which has many moving parts that can be abraded by grit. A dry or damp rag cleans most dirt, but you might need a brush or degreaser for more suborn grime. We offer Bike Maintenance Workshops conducted by an experienced bicycle mechanic to teach you the proper techniques to keep your bike in great shape.
Bicycle Repairs and Restoration
We provide a variety of bicycle repairs and maintenance services including instant tube changes. We recommend regular maintenance but also listen carefully to your bike during each ride. If your bike starts to make unusual clicking, squeaking, or squealing noises a bicycle mechanic can find and fix the issue before it becomes a major problem.
Vintage bikes are a fun and stylish way to ride but often need a lot of TLC to make them safe and dependable again. Bicycle restorations bring the life back to a bike that has seen better days. Through bicycle restorations, we can turn your rusted childhood bike into a great heirloom to pass down to your children.
Contact Blue Cycles for all your biking needs including bicycle repairs, restorations, and maintenance because we are dedicated to providing you support for the life of your bike. Our enthusiasm spills into the community through fun competitions to raise money for local club fundraisers and Bike and Coffee events.
