Tune Up Special Ends February 28th

Just a reminder that the special we have on our basic tune ups will end at the end of February on the 28th.  At this point we are still no farther out then 2-3 business days on taking a bike in and then sending it back out,  but we are starting to see a considerable increase in the amount of work we are doing.  As a generality we will be around 5 business days with your bicycle here during the peek of the season.  Keep this in mind as we enter into the season and you have events/rides that you need to have maintenance done on your bicycle before.  Looking forward to a great year, come on spring.
