Bike Barn Mechanic Installing Bar Tape


Need to get your bike fixed? The Bike Barn offers free estimates and diagnosis. Simply walk in at any time during our open hours, and we will give you a diagnostic inspection at no cost. We are not able to provide repair assessments over the phone or via email. Please bring your bike in to get the most accurate evaluation and estimate.

Our repairs are performed at a labor rate of $40 per hour. Please expect to pay for your repair based on the time needed to complete the labor. Any additional parts that we need to use to repair your bike will be charged separately from labor. Most small repairs take around a half hour, so much of our labor is priced between $19 and $24. Tune ups usually range from $65 to $95. A flat repair including new parts costs $20 for tube replacement only and upwards of $40 if a new tire is required as well.

Need us to build a bike for you? Bike builds usually range from $65 to $130 depending on how much assembly is required and if any additional repairs are needed. If you are shipping your bike to us for us to build, please send us an email at stating your intention for us to build your bike prior to shipping and we will respond with further instructions. 

We are not able to perform repairs on scooters and some e-bikes. Please read this article for more detailed information on this policy. 

FAQ - Repairs

  • How long will it take to finish my bike repair?
  • Our turn around times vary depending on time of year. Please give us a call or stop by the shop for updates on our schedule. We are typically most busy when students return at the beginning of Fall quarter (expect to wait around a week and up to a month), and least busy in Winter quarter (same day service or a couple of days). 
  • How do I know what repairs my bike needs? How much will it cost?
  • Please bring your bike into the shop to get a free diagnostic assessment and quote for any repairs you might need. We are not able to provide accurate quotes over the phone or via email, a mechanic must assess your bike in person to help you figure out what it needs!
  • Can I borrow tools from the Bike Barn to complete repairs myself?
  • We are not able to loan out tools for liability reasons. Our mechanics can help you with a lot of quick fixes free of charge, bring your bike in to see what we can do! We also sell some assorted tools and all the parts in our inventory if you are looking to repair your bike on your own.
