Service

Hardcore Bikes has always been known as a “technical” bike shop. To maintain the high level of repair service that our customers have expected from us we have invested a great deal of time, money and effort in our repair shop. Our head mechanics have been trained in the Barnett’s system of bicycle repair which involves, wherever possible, quantifying adjustments. For example, bolts are not just tightened, they are torqued to the manufacture’s recommend value. Wheels are not just trued but also tensioned with a spoke tension meter ensuring the wheel is within the optimal range. Anyone can repair your bike by “feel” but we believe you deserve a higher standard of service.

We have invested in Specialty Tools to offer Professional Service for these products: 

  • Shimano Nexus and Alfine Internal Hubs -- Oil Changes
  • Chris King Hubs -- Full Overhauls
  • Most Suspension Forks -- Full Overhauls
  • Fox Rear Air Shocks -- Overhaul of Air Sleeve (not including charging of Nitrogen) 
  • Frame Prep: BB tapping and Facing, Headtube reaming, Seatube Reaming and Honing
  • Pedal Insert Helicoil
  • Custom Wheel Building using a DT Spoke Tension Meter
  • Disc Brake Rotor Truing
  • Torque Wrenches: All of our Repairs make use of Torque Wrenches whenever possible. Our philosophy: Don't Guess, Measure.

All of our Work is Guaranteed!
