3 Reasons to Go to a Bike Shop for a Tuneup , Honolulu, Hawaii

For some, a bicycle is an excellent source of transportation.  For others, it’s a fun activity and a top-notch workout. To keep your set of wheels on the right path, stop by Honolulu’s best bike shop, Eki Cyclery. Since 1911, the knowledgeable team has been providing riders across Oahu with bikes, parts, accessories and repairs to make your favorite ride even more enjoyable. 

Here are three great reasons to stop in for a tuneup:

  • It Will Save Your Brakes: Every rider knows how vital brakes are. If they suddenly go out, the results can be dangerous, so make sure they’re adjusted properly and have sufficient stopping power. The brake levers and cables are important to keep an eye on. If you notice a difference in appearance and performance, it’s best to take your bicycle in.
  • It Will Keep You From Collapsing: Your wheels are a system that requires every part to work properly, and not doing so could result in dangerous consequences. One missing spoke, for example, will cause the rest of the spokes to loosen. If these aren’t aligned properly, they won’t support your weight, causing a collapse in the middle of your ride. Stay safe and protect your bicycle (and yourself) with regular tuneups.
  • bike shopIt Will Make Your Ride a Pleasure:   A tuneup includes aligning wheels, adjusting brakes and gears, checking all fasteners and lubing the chain.  A properly tuned bike rolls better and makes your ride more efficient and pleasurable!
  • No appointment needed:  Roll your bike in whenever it is convenient for you.  Leave your bike with us for a day or two and we will see to it that it gets the once over!  If you use your bike for transportation, please mention that and we will give you priority placement.

If you are in need of a tuneup or repair, parts or accessories, Honolulu’s best bike shop is here to help. Visit Eki Cyclery’s website to learn more or call (808) 847-2005!
