Maintenance & Repair

Having a properly maintained bicycle is important for a variety of reasons. A properly functioning bicycle will ensure your safety, fix small problems before they become big ones, and most importantly, add to your enjoyment while riding.

We can either repair or find a solution to almost any problem that you might show us. Our staff has experience building a $12,000 race machine to restoring the one speed bike you grew up with 40 years ago. If it's a small tweak or a major overhaul, the staff at Bike Tech can help.

Bike Tech has one of the most advanced service departments in Iowa. Our shop has a Crest ultrasonic parts washer, a Morizumi spoke cutter (one of about 20 in the country at time of purchase), and a computerized workorder tracking system. We can tell you what we did to your bike each time it was here, which allows us to make recommendations for the next time you bring it in for service.

Comprehensive Tune-Up Packages

Our best value and most complete service options for your bike. We'll fine tune your bike so that it is shifting as good as new and let you know what parts may need to be replaced and why. Perfect for catching small problems before they become big ones.

Visit us today for a free inspection and no obligation estimate.

Looking for E-bike Service?

We've got the tooling and training to work on some of the bike industry's top brands. From a basic tune up to diagnosing an issue or updating your bike firmware, we can do it all. Pricing may vary depending on the e-bike manufacturer.

Manufacturer Recommended Service Intervals

Your bike is more than just a chain and some shifters.  Bikes today can sometimes include complex components like suspension forks and shocks, hydraulic disc brakes, and can be equipped with tires that don't need tubes to hold air.  Routine maintenance of these components can prevent costly repair in the future while adding years of like-new performance to your bike.

Suspension

Suspension forks, shocks, and seatposts all need periodic service to ensure proper function and prevent costly damage to critical components.

Suspension makers recommend service every 50 and 100-200 hours.

Hydraulic Brakes

Keep those disc brake stopping on a dime by making sure your fluids are uncontaminated and pistons are clean and lubricated.

Hydraulic brake makers recommend changing your fluids annually.

Tubeless Tires

The benefits of tubeless are obvious but did you know that sealant evaporates over time? Sealant makers recommend refreshing your sealant levels every 2 to 6 months.

We recommend topping off your tires every 4 to 6 months.

A La Carte Services

Great options for fixing individual needs and performing advanced cleanings. Some items can be done same day or while you wait.
