Bike Repair Service:

We offer bike repair services to customers within our service areas in Orange County and north San Diego County. Similar to our rental services, we can pick up your bike and return it to you once the repairs have been completed. Contact us at (949)374-6079 to schedule your service. In general, we can provide quick turnaround (1-2 days) depending on your needs. We can also provide you with a demo bike at a reduced rate while you await the completion of your service (dependent upon availability).

Custom Wheel Building:

We provide custom wheel building services. In consultation with our master mechanic, you choose the rims, hubs, spokes, and nipples to create a custom  wheelset that fits your needs, riding style, and your aesthetic. Prices range from $500 and up and are dependent upon your choices of hub, rim and spoke type.

We will be offering only aluminum rims on our wheelsets, initially. Our current favorite is the Pacenti SL23. It is a 24mm wide rim that is tubeless clincher compatible, and it is available in 20, 24, 28, and 32 hole drillings. Weighing in at 450g per rim, it is lighter than comparable rims, and we find that it builds up into a light, strong wheelset. We can also build wheels with rims from DT Swiss, HED, Velocity, H Plus Son and Stan’s. Hub choices include: Chris King, DT Swiss, White Industries, Tune, and Pacenti.

To talk to us about your new wheel build, give us a call at (949)374-6079. We’ll arrange a consultation with our wheelbuilder to discuss your specific needs.

Head Mechanic/ Master Wheel Builder:

Don Mock is our go-to guy for repairs and service as well as for our wheel building needs. Don has been in the cycling industry for well over 20 years and provides pro level service to all of his customers. Don has proven to be exceeding meticulous over the years, which is what you want from your mechanic when you entrust someone to work on your bike.

Additionally, Don is master wheel builder, and has experience building both alloy and carbon wheel sets. He was certified by DT Swiss in 1995 and at one point, he built all custom for Chris King Components when they were located in Santa Barbara, CA.
