For 2015 Out Cycling informed us that all bikes will have to be inspected and given a clean bill of health via a Free Evaluation followed by discounted Tune Up rate specials if applicable. That means we can arrange for a visual inspection of your bike and dependent on work needed you’ll get a quote for updating/repairing. If you’d like to preemptively Tune Up your bike discounted Tune Up rates for members are, $80 for tune up deluxe (regularly $120) and $40 for standard Tune up (Regularly $60) both tune ups will include a preseason inspection and report card for proof of work conducted.
Zen Bikes will be holding 4 flat repair / routine maintenance classes that are limited to 12 per class due to the attention you’ll be receiving from staff. This will cover flat repair and prevention, and basic mechanical check list that will help make you more aware of your bike and it’s mechanical properties. I assure you it will be fun and wrought with lots of jokes and hands on learning. Dates and a signup sheet will be available at the kickoff party on March 21st.
