Service is the heart of our operation! Established in 2006 as a bicycle repair shop in Preston, Washington, one of the first things we did was get a Park MK129 Master Tool Kit. Every shop level tool that Park Tools makes, we own. Park has been making only bicycle tools for decades, and pretty much every shop out there uses their tools because they’re the best. We also have a large set of automotive tools, which include punches, presses, micrometers, drills, sockets, etc. and these tools carry over quite a bit when doing the odd job which normal bike tools don’t quite cover.
What this means for you is that our little shop has a tool selection which is the envy of most shops out there-it is unlikely that you can bring us something we can’t tackle! We’re even working on getting some Royal Wentworth tools for you old school British bike fans.
The shop’s owner, Bolton Peck, has been fixing things most all of his life, and has been an automotive mechanic (ten years) a computer technician/software tester (two and a half years) and officially a bicycle mechanic most recently, since 2002.
We take pride in our work, and it’s all guaranteed to be to your liking. We strongly encourage you to bring your shoes and helmet, so you can test ride your bike after it’s done. There are lots of places to test a road or mountain bike, right out the door of the shop. We have ample parking in the front and rear. We are also ADA accessible!
Preston Bicycle Repair is probably the smallest bike shop around, with very few square feet to spare! However that doesn’t stop us from stocking a full range of bicycle repair parts and accessories. And, since we deal with a wide range of vendors, we can get anything we don’t have within a day or two!
There is one thing, however, that we don’t have: the overhead of paying rent on a great big place! Because of that lack of overhead, it is possible for us to keep our labor rates low, and our bang for the buck can’t be beat!
For instance, a tune-up at most places costs $140 if you have the chain removed and cleaned – here the standard $95 tune-up includes that service!
Additionally, we offer an early bird service for those who have to be to work early. You can leave your bike here in the morning with your name and number, and we’ll call you when we look at the bike, to talk about what it needs.
Why are we here? It’s simple: to help people ride their bikes! A properly tuned bike that fits you is a joy to ride, not to mention the physical, psychological, and financial benefits of cycling. It’s great for your cardiovascular and general health. There’s nothing like a good workout to clear your mind and get you centered again. And, every time you ride your bike somewhere, versus driving, you are saving money on fuel, tires, oil etc. and even doing the planet a little favor.
