Repairs, Builds, & Tune-ups

When you choose Broadway Bicycle for maintenance, fixes, or builds, you’re getting 45 years of experience fixing and building.

Every job we do—from fixing a flat to a full tune up—is double checked by a second mechanic. In addition, we test ride your bike two times: both the mechanic and a test rider who looks the work over take your bike for a ride before we hand it back to you.

Additionally, you are supporting an environmentally conscious community space that actively promotes diversity in the biking community, values empowerment through education, and supports social justice work in the Boston area.

Flat Repairs

Flats are a drag. Drop in for a 15 Minute Flat and we’ll get you on your way pronto.

We will inspect your tire for the offending object, check your rim strip and tire for damage, install a new tube and make sure your chain is properly oiled too! A Basic flat-fix is $19 which includes labor and the new tube.

Basic Tune-up

A basic tuneup is recommended once a year to maximize your bike’s performance and longevity.

The price of the basic tuneup includes labor for the following

  • Grease the seatpost
  • Grease the stem (on threaded stems)
  • Remove and grease the pedal threads
  • Check or adjust the bottom bracket bearing system
  • Adjust the headset bearing system
  • Adjust the hub bearing systems
  • True front and rear wheels
  • Adjustments of the front and rear braking systems
  • Adjustments of the front and rear shift systems
  • Alignment of the derailleur hanger when applicable
  • General tighten and lubrication of the bike
  • Light cleaning of the frame
  • Tire inflation and oil for your chain are always included

Any parts replacement and installation are additional. We provide free estimates, so bring your bike in to learn more about your individual needs.

Custom Wheel Building

If you have your heart set on a custom set of wheels – let us build them for you! Do you long for a 700c wheel laced to a 3speed hub?

Are you planning a tour and want a bombproof adventure? We will help you select your components (hubs, spokes, rims) and then professionally assemble them for you. Labor is $78.00 if you bring in your own parts, and $60 if you purchase your parts with us (parts cost additional). All handbuilt wheels come with a 30 day check-up and a 1 year warranty.
