Getting your bike rolling right
At EF, we know that your bike can be a source of stress when it’s not working right. We’re here to help you alleviate that stress with several options for service. Click below for more info on each. Please call the shop at 804 741 1599 to check on current service schedule and arrange for labor.
Please note the following:
All major service is completed by our head mechanic Andrew Wolak, a professional mechanic with over 15 years of experience. Please note that because of this, turnaround times may be increased during peak race seasons. We encourage you to schedule your service as far in advance as possible.
Due to limited storage space, bikes not picked up within 7 days of completion of service will be charged a $1.50 per day storage fee. Bikes left with us for longer than 30 days will be disposed of after 3 attempts to arrange for a pickup. Please let shop staff know when dropping the bike off if you will be unable to retrieve it within 7 days of the completion of labor.
Need a quick check-over before your next race or ride, but don’t need a full tune-up? Our “pre-race service” is just what you need. We’ll give your bike a thorough checkover using our multi-point inspection sheet for safety and proper function. This service includes alignment and adjustment of your front and rear derailleurs and brakes. We’ll confirm the safety and integrity of your frame and components, and to top it off, we’ll thoroughly clean and lube your chain.
Pre Race Service
The general tune-up is our most popular service package. This service expands on the basic adjustments covered in our “pre-race service” with the addition of a detailed cleaning and inspection of your bicycle’s frame and fork. Additionally, we complete a thorough on-the-bike cleaning of all moving components of your drivetrain and braking systems.
The re-cable service is a great value option for getting an old bike rolling like new again. In addition to all the cleaning and inspection of the general tune-up, we will also run new cables and housing for your bike. The cables and housing hold your brakes and derailleurs at the correct tension, and replacing this vital components ensure that shifting and braking performance are completely optimal. On top of that, you’ll even get a fresh new set of Profile Design bar tape in whatever color you please.
The complete overhaul is our most comprehensive service package. This service covers every facet of your bicycle from the frame up. Every component is removed from the bicycle, cleaned, lubricated, re-installed and then adjusted and tuned to perfection. It is the ideal service for bicycles that have been ridden or neglected for a long time without much regular preventative maintenance, or the bicycle that has been ridden hard for a whole season and needs to be fresh for the next. It includes everything from the above packages, as well as an ultrasonic parts wash of all washable parts, rebuilding of hubs, headset, and bottom bracket, radial and lateral truing of both wheels.
