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:
