Our mechanic will put your bike up on the stand and assess if it needs any TLC. If it has needs, he’ll let you know. If you don’t need any work done we just air up the tires and lube the chain and you’re on your way. We recommend you frequently check the pressure in your tires and re-lubricate your chain about once a month. We always give free air and chain lube at Ptown Bikes.
Bike is assessed. We adjust your brakes, gears, headset, bottom bracket, and wheel hubs, as well as true your wheels. We also check tire pressure and lube your chain. Replacement parts/installation extra.
Opening Day through May 15. Don’t wait for the sunny weather! Get your bikes in early so they will be ready for you when it turns sunny and warm. We typically get backed up 2-3 weeks because this service is so popular. Don't wait, make a reservation early.
Ship your bike directly to our shop and we will build it and tune it up. Call or email us to let us know your bike is on its way and when you want to pick it up. We will have it ready for you! (Some weeks at Ptown Bikes are extremely busy. It's always a good idea to contact us and plan ahead so we can best accommodate your schedule!)
We adjust your brakes and both derailleurs. Replacement parts/installation extra. Kind of a mini Tune-Up.
Approximate cost for inner tube and $12 labor for installation (most standard bikes). High performance and specialty tubes may cost more. Dutch bikes and other specialty bikes may require additional labor.
We provide free rental bikes to customers while your bike is being repaired (based on availability). Loaner bikes are usually available, however, during very busy weeks and holidays it may not be possible. Call and ask at the front counter for availability (or come see us in person)!
We will store your bike in our warehouse in Truro keeping it safe from moisture and salt air. A bike left out all winter, even under a porch may require extensive repairs. When you are ready to retrieve your bike, please give us a weeks heads up so we can retrieve your bike from our warehouse, dust it off, air up the tires and lube the chain. It will be ready when you arrive.
Storage for up to a year plus a Tune-Up. Winter storage as described above. In the spring give us a week heads up. We will retrieve your bike from our warehouse, give it a tune-up, and it will be ready when you arrive. If you need to pick your bike up during one of the busiest weeks of the summer (4th of July, Bear Week, Carnival), please make sure to give us at least a week heads up so that we can make sure we have your bike ready for you on time.

We professionally box your bike for shipping. We will carefully disassemble your bike and pack it using foam pads, bubblewrap, zip ties... whatever it needs. We will then book your bike’s travel using BikeFlights. You can pay BikeFlights directly, or we can organize it for you. Ship your bike directly to your home or favorite bike shop for assembly.
