At Harris Cyclery, our service staff has a well earned reputation for performing expert repairs. Our custom bike builds are well known for their attention to details and proper component selection. Our rock-solid custom wheel builds are second to none. From a flat tire to a complete overhaul, our mechanics are ready to serve your needs.

Scheduling Your Service

Simple repairs like fixing a flat or installing an accessory can generally be done while you wait. 

For most repairs you will need to leave your bike with us for a few days. When you bring your bike in, you will be given a repair assessment, price estimate and turnaround time for the repair. In the event additional labor or parts are needed to complete the repair, prices may be adjusted and you will be notified.

During the peak season (March 1 - October 31) the time it takes to complete repairs unfortunately gets a bit longer. We make every effort to keep the maximum turnaround to 5 days or less, however depending on the nature of the repair and the availability of parts, it can take longer.
