Professional Mechanic Services

For the most comprehensive service and the best value, we recommend choosing one of our complete tune-up packages. We also offer “a la carte” bike repairs if you need a minor fix or adjustment. We strive to complete your bike service quickly and accurately. Learn more about our packages and visit either store today for your free estimate.

Please note that department store bikes will rarely perform to our standards, even after a proper Tune-Up. We will do our utmost to get your bike working in the best possible way. Parts may not be available for your department store bike as they often use non-standard components.

Service Department Per Hour Rate - $100.00

E-Bike Diagnostics Per Hour - $110.00
E-Bike service rates are regular service rates plus 10%

Bikes in for service are subject to $50 of pre-approved work. This allows for our mechanics to do minor repairs to the bicycle without having to contact you allowing for faster bicycle repair times and a more efficient work environment.


We are trained and able to work on the e bike brands we sell. All others we may do minor repairs but no electrical work. Batteries for off-brand bikes do not to stay at the shop as we are concerned about fire hazards.

*CycleLife can only service e-bikes with electric systems we have access to service parts for, including Bosch, Shimano, EMtech, Bafang and Hyena.
