SERVICES OVERVIEW

Remember, keeping your bike clean and adjusted properly will help it last longer and perform optimally!  

Every tune-up or service starts with a FREE Assessment.  

  • Standard Bicycle Tune-Ups are recommended every semester or 500-700 miles. 
  • Annual Tune-Up - For those who ride in the winter, an annual tune-up is important to manage and remove the, salt, grime, and moisture can cause rust to build up throughout your bike. 
  • Complete Overhaul - If you haven’t serviced your bicycle for a very long time or want that new bike feel, a complete overhaul of your bike will get it running it’s absolute best!  
  • Do It Yourself Stand Time - The UMass Lowell Bike Shop is unique in that we offer an educational Do It Yourself Stand time option of those who want to learn to work on their own bike and save some money.  
  • Common Individual Services - We also offer common individual services which may be separate or added on to tune-ups. 

Labor is 20% off with valid UMass Lowell ID. Additional charges apply for tandems, tricycles, recumbent bikes, bikes with hydraulic brakes and installing customer supplied parts and accessories. We do not currently service high end suspension components or e-bike drive train components. 

Turn-around times for services varies based on the season. Waits are typically longer in April, May & September. Flat tires can usually be fixed in about a half hour.  Small repairs and tune-ups can typically be completed within a day. Major repairs or specific parts replacement generally takes multiple days.  We will let you know the expected wait time when you bring your bike into the shop.

Do It Yourself Stand Time

DO IT YOURSELF STAND TIME

$10/hour Public / FREE UML

We offer free do it yourself stand time during our open hours.  DIY stand time is a great way to gain hands on mechanical experience on your bike when you need it as well as save some money on repairs.  Bike shop staff will help you perform an initial assessment and help you get oriented to the shop.  They are present for occasional consultation and limited basic instruction. In the event that you need a bike shop mechanic to do the work or give you their attention though the entire repair we will charge the normal labor rate for that service.  We are happy to teach and we also need to maintain a functional and efficient bike shop. 

Please review our DIY Policies before using the shop.
