Cable & Housing Replacement
As one of the most common sources of shifting and braking problems, a worn out or corroded cable and housing can be a real headache. As a general rule cables and housings last about two years and after a solid couple of seasons of racing and riding, your cables and housings are most likely worn out. Over time and usage, the inner liners and ferrule caps of your housings begin to wear and can let moisture into areas where it is not supposed to go. The process of replacing the cables can be quite involved, and often entails replacing the bar tape. However, fresh cables and bar tape is a great way to treat your bike to some love and revive the crisp clean shifting your ride was meant to have.
Brake Pad Replacement or Installation
Got a few too many miles on your brakes? A fresh set of brakes will not only improve your braking ability, but ensure that your brakes work correctly when you need them. A proper brake pad or shoe replacement includes an adjustment to the pad alignment, cable tension, and brake lever position.
Considered one of the “regular maintenance” items on your bike, you should be able to get about 3000 miles of service out of most chains with proper and regular lubrication. However, at some point it will need to be replaced, and the wrong type of chain or improper installation can lead to shifting issues. The chain installation includes setting the new chain to the proper length, adjusting for minor wear issues, and checking the shifting.
Chainring/Cassette Replacement or Installation
Though not as common as a worn out chain, your chainrings and cassette will also eventually wear out and can cause some troublesome shifting such as, chain suck, chain skipping, and slow shifting. Replacing your chainrings or cassette often requires a derailleur adjustment, which is included.
Dérailleur and Brake Adjustments
With loads of screws, adjustments, and cables, your brakes and derailleurs can be complicated. If not adjusted properly and accurately, you bike will not be running in top form. We have years of experience and training and can ensure that your bike is in top form. If it’s race day or just a quick ride, don’ t let a mis-adjusted brake or dérailleur slow you down!
