PROSPECT BIKES OFFERS THOROUGH, PROFESSIONAL SERVICE FOR ALL KINDS OF BIKES.
We repair vintage to modern bikes
Prospect Bikes has been serving the needs of cyclists since 1959. Whether you’re looking to service your vintage Schwinn, your Cannondale road bike, your daily commuter, BMX, cyclo-cross, single speed, or your mountain bike, the Prospect Bike’s team is happy to service them.
All bikes should be routinely checked over to be ridden safely. Brakes are obvious – you have to stop. Other parts of the bike should be looked at too. Pedals can slip when chains are worn or when derailleurs and shifters are out of adjustment. Bearings should be adjusted so they won’t damage your bearing surfaces. Regular Tune Ups address these issues.
We adjust your brakes, derailleurs, and perform minor truing of your wheels. (There are additional costs for wheels with hops, flat spots, or broken spokes.) All your bolts are checked for tightness and the drive train is lubricated. We wipe the frame down and clean the wheel rims – no rust removal
This is a great option if you just want to find out what your bike needs. We put your bike up on the repair stand and look it over closely. We give you an itemized list of what the bike needs. If you commit to get all the recommended repairs done within 30 days, the $25 is applied towards the total repair costs if ALL recommended repairs are done.
We have numerous other services such as flat tire repair and wheel straightening, basic adjustments of single or multiple items, both functional and fitting you best to your bike.
The only 4 things we do not do are: welding, painting, fixing something that just can’t be fixed, and fixing something that isn’t broken – (unless you tip us real good! – LOL).
We are dedicated to keeping you rolling. We have everything you need, whether you are commuting to work, riding the local trails, cruising around town, or setting out for that century or cross-country tour.
By far the best team I've ever worked with. They truly understood the look I was going for and completely nailed it! I would highly recommend them as a company, you won't find any better!Carly Young, ThemeNectar
It was really fun getting to know the team during the project. They were all helpful in answering questions and made me feel at ease. The design ended up being better than I could've envisioned!Jeff Gemmell, ThemeNectar
I'm wondering why I never contacted these guys sooner! They have commendable talent in their fields and knocked my concept out of the ballpark. An amazing experience!Mark Levin, ThemeNectar
