Bike-ology

Bike-ology in 2022

Hop off the bus and onto the bike! Bike-ology will fix or service your bike for free, with spare parts that we take off from old bikes, or with student pricing on brand new parts from our local parts suppliers and partners. Whether its a quick fix, tune-up or a massive overhaul, we are equipped with professional work-stands and tools to get the job done efficiently and to our best ability.

So if your bike is making a funny noise after a rainy ride... Or you pulled your rusty bike out from under the house. Pop into Bike-ology to check it out, whether it be big or small.
