Mechanical Services Policies

Like our customers, we hold high standards for our work.

We warranty our labor for 30 days from date of pick-up, and welcome your feedback - our goal is to have your bike working the best it ever has.

We try to always meet the promises we make for pick-up dates, however parts availability or complications in service may delay completion - we will always communicate any delays to the best of our ability.

As part of any service done at Freshbikes, we may inspect any/all components - anything deemed to be unsafe must be replaced for service to be completed.

Lastly, as part of our high standards, we do occasionally need to decline to work on certain bikes or components, based upon concerns for customer safety or parts quality and durability - we want our customers to receive the level of service they expect and have an excellent riding experience, and only put our name behind products and services that meet our expectations.
