Bicycles and their underlying technologies have changed significantly over the years. As more advanced types of materials and components are used, the old "fix it yourself" tools and techniques people are familiar with from twenty years ago don't always work. Old Town Bike Shop is constantly upgrading and buying the correct tools to service and install these new technologies. In some cases, without these special tools, you can actually damage your frame, components, or yourself. Our Service staff is trained in the use of these tools ranging from complex frame prepping and alignment tools to those used for basic adjustments.

Every season brings new changes to and applications of many different technologies. Our Service staff continuously uses a combination of periodic training classes, technical updates from bicycle and component manufacturers, and other sources of ongoing education to maintain current awareness of all the applicable bicycling technologies. Using and understanding these technologies and how they can best work together is an important goal of our Service Department. Our Service staff can identify problems and sometimes prevent others simply through their deep knowledge of the interaction of different types of components and technologies working together.

Our staff can help you understand the technologies used in your bicycle. Old Town Bike Shop has qualified employees who can help discuss the problems and choices you have when considering all the maintenance and repair issues associated with bicycle ownership. Included among our staff are certified technicians trained at the Barnett Bicycle Institute, one of the nation's most prestigious schools for cycling technology and repair.

The service staff at Old Town Bike Shop is very experienced. They range from mountain bike and road racers to serious touring enthusiasts and recreational riders. It can be said they really have "seen it all," and fixed it too! This means that you can have the confidence that your bicycle will be repaired, maintained, and tuned by people who know the appropriate application for your specific cycling style.

At Old Town Bike Shop, only knowledgeable, experienced technicians following the manufacturer's recommended specifications carry out the work on your bicycle. This is part of our Service Department's commitment to quality and your overall satisfaction and safety.
