Local Bike Shops: What can they do for you?

Local Bike Shops: What can they do for you?

Spring is here, and summer is right around the corner! That means it’s the perfect time to give your bike the TLC it deserves in preparation for a perfect riding season. More often than not, that TLC means more than just pumping up those tires and a quick wipe down, which is why your local Electra dealer is there to help.   

After being tucked away all winter long, it’s not a bad idea to take your bike in for a tune up so you can roll into riding season without a hitch. Trust us, these things are sometimes best left to the pros. Your local shop will be able to do a standard tuneup that includes brake and gear adjustments and a general safety check, as well as addressing any additional wear and tear as needed. If you’re riding around town on a Go! e-bike, you’ll also want to check in with them about any diagnostic and software updates. 

Have you been eyeing a certain bell or basket, but unsure of where you can buy it? Or maybe you need help installing it on your bike? Perhaps you just want to see it in person because that is the kind of buyer you are. Your local bike shop can help with all of this!  

The best part? Your local bike shop is just that… local! They can provide you with the “boots on the ground” information like the most spectacular rides in your area, rules of the road, and maybe even their favorite taco stand! The bottom line is that your local bike gurus are excited to get more people in their community out riding on two wheels.   

If you can’t tell by now, your neighborhood bike shop is more than the place where you fell in love with your two-wheeled ride. They are there to help you make the most of your adventures. If you need a refresher on where to find your local Electra dealer, check out the dealer locator on our website. In true Electra fashion, we took thing s to the next level so you can now preview what is in stock at most of our authorized dealers before you head over. Why wait?
