Getting your bicycle fully serviced is the best way to ensure a safe and reliable riding experience.
With this service we adjust your bicycle's shifting & braking, true the wheels, lubricate cables and housing, thoroughly clean every part of the bicycle, adjust the bearings systems, and replace your grips or bartape. Additional services to this are 50% off with the tune-up.
Just like the basic tune-up except with the deluxe tune-up we will remove your derailleurs and drivetrain for a more thorough cleaning and service. Deluxe tune-ups are recommended most of the time to ensure the highest quality ride.
Got a bike that's been in the yard for a decade or maybe one that's been just ridden into the ground? No problem. If your bike needs a tune-up that surpasses regular service we offer the complete overhaul service. Bring that relic back to life!
Know what's cool about single speeds? Lots. But one of the great things you hear folks saying about them is that they're easier to maintain and that's true. Since it's easier on us to tune-up your single speed we pass those savings onto you.
Got a new bike in a box from the internet or something? That's cool, let us get it professionally assembled for you so it rides like a new bike should. Online distributors that are worth their salt will require a shop to assemble your new bike and we'd love to help you with that.
Many people express themselves with their bikes. You want this derailleur with those shifters with that frame and this bottom bracket to those cranks with this hub to those rims with some weird spokes and stuff? THAT'S THE BEST! We say hourly because sometimes it's $60/hr, or if you're building the bike with Blue Dog we get really flexible about custom builds. WE LOVE THEM.
Going on a trip with your bicycle is perhaps the finest thing a cyclist can do. Nothing is better than experiencing new territories by bicycle. Allow us to safely box your bike for shipping, then we'll guide you through BikeFlights.com, you'll get to your destination with your bike safely there. Let us make it easy for you. It's awesome.
Rubber side down!
The sky's the limit here. New wheels are the biggest improvement you can make on your bicycle. We've got hundreds and hundreds of wheelbuilds in our history, let us set you up.
Got a wobble? We got you.
There are more flat tires in Tucson than almost anywhere else in the world. It's true. If we're just swapping out the tube we'll charge you $6 in labor. Many times tires or other parts will need replaced with a flat repair.
Internally geared bicycles are a little more work to pop the wheel off and on. Make sure it's set back up correctly by having us change that flat for you.
E-Bikes aren't as easy to swap tubes out on so we charge a little more than a regular bike. We always recommend a puncture resistant tire that is e-bike rated for use with these types of systems.
Tubeless is not some weird scary thing, it's awesome and we recommend it wherever it'll work. You lose rolling resistance, lose rotational weight, can run a lower pressure for higher performance, and get a fraction of the flats. We charge the same to set up a bike tubeless as we do to swap the tube, then all you gotta get from us is parts.
Rollin', rollin', rollin'. Keep them doggies rollin'.
Too tight or too loose can damage your wheels! We adjust everything to spec to ensure your ride is awesome.
We pull the hub apart, take out all that old dead grease, clean everything up, replace what is needed, and get it back together for smooth operation.
Pull out your old bearings and swap them with some new ones.
Ever seen the inside of a Sturmey Archer hub and rebuilt it? We sure have.
If you've been klunkin' like you should be you'll need a repack at some point to keep that cruiser safe.
Similar to the Sturmey-Archer overhauls just with Shimano specific parts.
Bottom brackets are the bearings that make your cranks spin. Keeping it well serviced will make your bike efficient.
Price depends on your bottom bracket style.
We'll pull the bottom bracket system apart, clean everything meticulously, repack it with high quality grease, and get it all set back up to spec.
One of the most common sources of creaking on a bicycle is that your bottom bracket needs pulled and greased. Moisture can sneak into it make a creaky spot. This service will keep your bicycle quiet.
Cartridge (aka sealed) bottom brackets aren't really serviceable. It's kinda like a light bulb, once it's done it just needs swapped.
The headset are the bearings that keep your bicycle turning and steering smooth. They're really important to your ride and keeping them adjusted is essential
This simple service is essential for a properly functioning bicycle.
Installing a headset in a new frame or replacing the headset on your current bike? We do it right. This does not include the cost to ream & face your headtube (which we definitely recommend).
When some people hear about a "headset overhaul" they think of One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest or Clockwork Orange, but no no it's nothing scary like that. We just pull everything out, clean it all, relube or repack it all, and set it back up to spec.
Sometimes even frames need serviced or set up.
Frames can need realigned. One of the most common places they need realigned is at the dropouts where the rear wheel sits in the frame.
Improper shifting techniques or impact to the derailleur can tweak the hanger that attaches it to a bicycle. This service will get your derailleur hanger squared back up to the rest of the frame.
Prepping your headtube is important before you install your headset. This ensures that the bearings are sitting square with each other and optimizes steering and stability.
If you BB shell needs some machining this service is for you. Threads may need realignment, or may have weld splatter from manufacturing that prevents the threading of the bearings. Shells may be out of round due to welding during manufacturing. Additionally, some bearing system benefit from having the faces of the shell square to improve bearing adjustment and bearing longevity.
This service makes sure that your disc brake tabs are machined straight so brake systems will mount square and proper.
Ever had a seatpost that was seized into place on a bicycle? Holy cow, it's frustrating. There's a few different methods we usually have to go through to get them out of the bike.
These brake services will keep you safe and confident with your braking systems.
Doesn't matter if it's road caliper, linear brakes, cantis, u-brakes, or disc brakes. We charge the same rate for all of them to swap out some brake pads.
Keep your ride safe by having us make sure your braking performance is optimized.
Hydraulic brake systems are becoming more and more common now. People love them because of their superior stopping power. You bleed hydraulic lines instead of adjusting cable tension to adjust the stopping power on these systems.
This service is for putting a new brake on your bicycle. At Blue Dog we love all bikes so all costs are the same on this from road brake to hydro disc brake.
Sometimes hydraulic systems will need a bleed to set up correctly, so we might have to include that with those systems.
Services to fix all your shifting ailments.
This pricing reflects the cost of replacing your road shifter and retaping your bars. This is for "brifter" style integrated shifting systems and bar-end shifters. If you have downtube shifting it only costs as much as an ATB shifter install.
Put a new shifter on your mountain bike, city bike, or flat-barred bicycle.
Sometimes the pawls that make your shifter click between gears will get gunked up and your shifter stops working. With this service we can sometimes prevent you from having to buy new shifters by pulling your old ones apart and flushing all that build-up out. This service cost includes the cost of shop supply to get it working again.
Need a new cable? We got you.
We charge $10 to swap a cable. $3 for a cable, and $2 a foot for housing.
Getting your cockpit dialed on your bike changes everything.
Swapping out a mountain, cruiser, or city style handlebar to something that suits you a little better? This is the service you'd need for that.
Swapping out dropbar levers? This is the service for you. Service cost includes re-taping your new handlebar.

Keep your pedal stroke smooth and efficient with our drivetrain services
Got a super dirty drivetrain? We can pull all your components off your bike for you and put them through a rigorous cleaning and relubrication to prolong their service life and optimize their performance.
If it's just a quick derailleur adjustment this service is for you.
When derailleurs wear out or brake we can swap them with a new one for you.
Chains wear out. It's part of bike-life. Worn out chains are unsafe and don't function correctly so it's something we check every single time the bicycle is in our stands.
Chains and the gear clusters they run on wear out harmoniously. This is the service cost to replace your cassette when that time comes.
Although they go under significantly less torque than the cassette and chain, they do eventually wear out on a bicycle that's being ridden.
