SERVICE + REPAIR

Cambridge Bicycle’s service department has everything you need to get your bike working again, so that you can get back out and ride as soon as possible. We offer a full range of services with free estimates so you know how much your repair costs before we start work on it.

We stock replacement parts and components for most road, mountain, hybrid, and commuter bikes, and we specialize in repairing and optimizing the workhorses of Cambridge and Boston.

We have a wealth of deep knowledge regarding everything from vintage cruisers to modern road and mountain bikes. Below is just a quick summary of what we offer. For more just stop by with your bicycle or call.

Tune-Ups.

Need a tune-up? We’re your shop. Our tune-ups include adjusting all parts on a bike, including adjusting your shifting, braking, and truing both wheels.  Bring your bike in for a free estimate and let us take it from there.

Flat fixes.

Flat tires happen – especially on the rough and tumble streets of the city. We’re here to fix them with a turnaround as quick as 15 minutes. With our inventory of tubes and tires from 8” to 29”, we can get just about any bike with a busted tube or tire rolling again.

 

Brakes.

Riding a bike can be fun and fast, but we all like to stop on our own terms.  We can adjust or replace parts on just about any type of brake from older road rim brakes, to newer hydraulic systems. We stock replacement brakes for most common types, as well as individual components including cables, brake pads, and disc brake rotors.

DRIVETRAIN.

Sometimes your bike’s chain and cogs need a little bit of love. We can adjust or replace parts on just about any bicycle from antique three speeds to vintage hybrids to modern race bikes. If you have a bike that was made within the last 50 years, chances are we have both the know-how and compatible parts needed to help you out.

Custom Builds.

Want something unique and totally custom? We specialize in custom built bicycles ranging from single speeds, bikepacking bikes, gravel bikes, road bikes, and vintage restorations. Whether you have a frame in-mind or not, we can likely find and recommend the right choice. Our staff is incredibly knowledgeable and is capable of making your dream bike come to fruition. The process starts with a detailed conversation about your wants and needs so that we can build the best bike for you. 

 

Wheels.

If you have wheels on your bike, we can likely service them. We offer hub overhauls, wheel truing, and spoke replacements for just about anything that rolls through our door. Are your wheels broken, worn out, or missing? We stock replacement wheels in dozens of common and uncommon standards. For discerning cyclists, unique projects, or high demand cyclists we also offer custom wheelbuilding services done on location by our skilled mechanics. We take great pride in our wheelbuilding services, so ask for a free quote!

 

Shipping Bikes.

Need to ship a bike across country or even internationally? We can disassemble your bike and professionally pack it up so it can be shipped safe and sound. We recommend services like BikeFlights to coordinate the shipping of your bike and then we can handle the rest. Get in touch for further details!
