Creaks
Creaking can be difficult to pinpoint. With the advance of technology bikes are becoming more hollow and often amplify small noises - especially in carbon frames.  
    We have good success in eliminating creaks and noises. Pop in to the shop and we'll take it for a test ride. 


Carbon Repairs
We do not repair frames on site but can arrange repair and give you a quote/estimate on structural repair and paint match services.
