Kyle's Bikes 2017-18 Winter Bike Maintenance Specials

Kyle's Bikes Winter Bike Maintenance SpecialsHave you noticed that chill in the air? Our mechanics have. They've noticed you don't come by as much anymore. They miss seeing you; well, they miss your bike, anyway. So we are offering two winter bike maintenance specials to entice you to bring that bike in for a visit.

We understand you might not be riding as much, or maybe now you're riding your fat bike instead. That makes this a good time to drop your summer bike or race bike off so our mechanics can thoroughly clean, lube, and adjust it and have you ready for next season.

Stop in our store in Ankeny, Iowa between now and Monday, February 5th to take advantage of these deals.

The first special is on our New Bike Feel Package. This is the package where we begin by completely disassembling your bike (after recording your fit measurements). As we build it back up, we clean, examine, lube, and tune every single part of it, including truing your wheels. All labor and the basic parts are included in the price. Your bike is returned to you feeling like new.

The second special is on our Annual Service and Cleaning Package. This is what we recommend any cyclist has done yearly. The bike is given a complete lube (chain, cables, pivots, and pulleys), both the shifting and brakes are adjusted, and we true the wheels. The only disassembly is the drivetrain, so it can get a bath in our solvent tank. The price includes all the labor, but all parts are an additional cost.

Why Would Parts Need to Be Replaced?

Some parts of you bike may last "forever," such as the frame. Some parts, like brake pads and tires, and wear out in a season or less when you're racking up the miles.

Here are the most common parts we end up recommending replacement of during winter maintenance:

Dirt and moisture wear down cables and housings. If they go too long without being replaced, it can be impossible to get shifting or braking performing smoothly. (New Bike Feel Package includes cables and housing.)

Replacing your brake pads every year is a good idea. They get worn down over time and are so critical for your safety. (New Bike Feel Package includes brake pads.)

Tires and tubes take a lot of wear and sometimes abuse from the road or trail. A fresh set for the new year is never a bad idea. (New Bike Feel Package includes tires and tubes.)

New bar tape or new grips don't just make your bike look better, they can make your hands and wrists feel better. Old, worn-down tape or grips aren't doing you any favors. (New Bike Feel Package includes bar tape or grips.)

The drivetrain is a common area where we find parts that need to be replaced. They don't necessarily need to be replaced every year, but they do need to be checked for wear. If your chain gets too worn, it can cause the gears to wear out faster. We will check your chain, chain rings, cassette, and jockey pulleys, and let you know how much life is left in them.

What parts might you want to replace? Do you want to upgrade to electronic shifting? Have a dropper post installed? Both these packages cover all the labor, so now is a good time to consider component upgrades.
