The expert staff of cyclists and mechanics at Bicycles Plus caters to fuel-free road riders with bike rentals and tune-up services within an award-winning shop. Rent a hybrid/comfort bike for a day of pleasant cruising, or take to the streets on a road bike for 24 hours of intense in-town peddling or fierce bouts of leapfrog with competitive sedans. Those with their own velocipede can bring it in for a tune-up, which includes a thorough cleaning, a meticulous inspection, and a hardware check for torque and safety. Lubricating the chains, cables, and pivots for smooth cement sailing, Bicycle Plus's skilled mechanics also adjust the brakes, derailleurs, and hubs, as well as set the bicycle's wheel geometry straight with a detailed truing session and a lecture on the dangers of hanging out with crooked tricycles.
Bicycle Plus’s staff, a group of avid cyclists, brings an acute awareness to bike sales and tune-ups, garnering the store a series of awards for excellent bicycle retailing. Veteran mechanics work their magic on ailing frames throughout basic tune-ups and complete overhauls in the service department while finding time to teach curious DIYers how to fix a flat tire with peanut butter during free weekly bike-maintenance classes. The sales team pairs up shoppers with glossy rides from Trek, Specialized, and Colnago using the doctor-devised Body Geometry bike-fitting system to ensure maximum riding comfort.
