Repairs

We have three bike mechanics on staff and now have TWO locations offering repairs. 

Drop your bike off at either:

  1. Main Shop ("Live to Surf parking lot")
  2. Pacific Sands Shop

Important:

Please don't bring us bikes from the dump. While we LOVE bringing a new life to old bikes, 99% of dump bikes are there for a reason. We will no longer quote work on very decayed or very broken bikes as it takes us a long time to find out what needs to be replaced and what can be replaced to make them ridable and safe, and it's more often than not a price people do not want to pay. We're the only repair shop in town and we're so so so busy that we can not gift this time anymore. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Also,

If you bring us a bike that has been sitting outside for a long time and has not been usable for a while, it's unlikely to be a cheap fix. We are currently charging a $50 quote fee on very damaged or broken bikes. For more info, have a look at our prices for parts & labour below.
