RSC is a full-service bicycle studio; the primary focus is to improve the maintenance of your bike so you can spend more time having better rides. We offer many services; here are some of our most popular.
This is our most comprehensive service. We strip the bike down to the frame–and once realigned–we rebuild the entire bike. We’ll make your bike ride better than new.
Your bike will feel like new with more than 3-hours of skilled maintenance and attention to every detail.
Racer or not, your bike deserves periodic tune-ups! We’ll turn this service around within 24- to 48-hours and ensure that your bike is ready for the most grueling performance–race, long ride, or harsh weather.
Clean & Detail
We’ll perform a 7-point safety inspection–and the appropriate adjustments–on your bike, clean and detail the machine, and make recommendations for improvements, if you like.
