$29 for a Full-Service Bike Tune-Up ($60 Value)
An expert mechanic adjusts the brakes, derailleurs, bottom bracket, headset, and wheel cones. The mechanic then aligns the brake pad, cleans and lubes the chain, and performs a light wheel true before capping off the tune-up with a full bike cleaning.
The ReCyclery Bike Cafe
As soon as visitors step into The ReCyclery Bike Cafe, the café's commitment to recycling becomes evident. Partners Justin and Brian envisioned the shop as a place where perfectly good—and often pristine—used bike parts would be restored, repurposed, or rebuilt for use in repairing and constructing bikes. The entire process is meant to eliminate waste and reduce the environmental impact caused by rusty bike chains that would otherwise be discarded into park fountains. Justin and Brian then took this vision and expanded it, making sure the hand-built café tables and chairs, as well as the bar and the floor, were all crafted from recycled materials. Visitors can feel the welcoming sense of homeyness and creative purpose as they sip coffee, sample the pocket sandwiches and kolache assembled by chef Francis Rojas, or just relax with the free WiFi while waiting on a bike tune-up.
