Some things to be aware of:

-Most people run their tires under-inflated. This has the same effect on your bike as it has on your car: it is more difficult to pedal and you’re more likely to get a flat, damaging not only your tube, but also your tire and wheel! Bring your bike into us and we’ll make sure you’re running at the right PSI!

-When you hear your chain grind, see us right away! The chain is an expensive part of the bike, and any grinding noise you hear is causing unnecessary wear and tear. Our qualified mechanics can sort what the problem is and get you back on your bike in no time!

-Have you been hit by a car? Bring your bike in immediately! Your bike may have been damaged in a way that isn’t visible to you, but we have the tools to check. We can also give you an itemized bill to help you in your insurance claim and in many cases can even order a new bike for you to replace the one you lost. Trust the mechanics at the Montclair Bikery to make sure you get back on the road as soon as possible!

-Is your headset loose? One of the major causes of broken frames and damaged bearings is riding with a loose headset. Sometimes you can’t even feel that it’s loose, the bike just doesn’t steer as smoothly. Let us take a look at it. Our mechanics are experienced in detecting small problems like this and fixing them on the spot!

-Is your seat too high? Your brakes to loose? Your shifting not as responsive? Your kickstand loose? Are your pedals damaged? For all your bike problems, stop by and talk to our mechanics! The Montclair Bikery is proud of its qualified and certified staff. You won’t find a more friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff anywhere!
