Professional People, Training & Tools!
When you bring in your bike for service, we always start with a free, no-obligation estimate of the work that's needed. One of our service pros will discuss your bicycle with you and carefully explain what we recommend, always respecting your choices and your budget.
We're service pros
Our service staff is professionally trained and certified to work on all bicycle makes and models, not just the ones we sell. And every member of our service team participates in training sessions with factory service techs several times each year.
So, whether it’s a minor tune-up or a major overhaul where we go completely through your bicycle and get it running like new, you can count on us to do the job right the first time, every time.
Walk-ins are welcome
Getting ready for a ride and discovered that a tire's gone flat? Did you hit a pothole and knock your wheel out of true? Sometimes you can't plan when your bike needs attention. Why not bring it in?
If we can fix it on the spot, we will. And if we need more time, we'll let you know when to stop by to pick it up. Come in, call or email us soon so we can make that important repair or adjustment and get you back on your bike ASAP.
Appointments are helpful
If you prefer the convenience of an appointment, we'll let you know how long the repair will take so that you can plan accordingly. If it’ll be ready quickly, you might want to check out what's new in our store while you’re waiting.
If you’re going to run some errands while your bike's being fixed, just give us a number where we can reach you in case we have any questions. Thank you!
What is the difference between a tune-up and an overhaul and when should they be performed? A tune-up should be performed once a year and possibly twice if you have been riding more than 2500 miles in 6 months or less. An overhaul should be performed every two years or if your bike has been ridden in extreme wet weather conditions.
Our tune-up includes simple wheel true; drivetrain clean and lube; adjust brakes, derailleurs, headset and hubs; torque all bolts to spec; wipe down frame and test ride the bike. Paragon's charge for all this is $80.00. Any parts needed will cost additional.
An overhaul includes having the bike taken down to the bare frame, all parts cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner, frame cleaned, wheels trued, all bearings checked and greased as needed, rebuild the bike with new cables and housing included. Paragon's charge for all this is $225.00. If you have had your bike for awhile, you do not notice the gradual changes to performance over time and having an overhaul done will make you notice a big difference in the quality of ride that you have missed.
Tire and tube replacement is what bike shops do the most. Our charge to replace either a tire, tube or both on the same wheel is $8.00. Tubes prices start around $5.95 for a standard tube to $13.95 for a heavy duty slime tube. Tires will start at $14.95 for a small kids bike tire and go up from there.
