Bicycle Repair Services

SERVICE INFO

Timing is everything

We do our best to provide a quick turnaround time for repairs. Many minor repairs can be done while you wait, and lots of others can be ready for you within 24 hours. Even if your bike repair requires ordering parts, we can usually get stuff for you within a couple days.

Don’t live in Ottumwa? Call ahead and make an appointment. We will work on your bike while you wander around Downtown, go to Quincy Place Mall for the afternoon, or hang out in the store.
