Why Choose Bike Shack?
We are a Mobile business which offers an extremely thorough job, for just a fraction of the price you’d expect to pay! Bike Shack was constructed due to the lack of quality and affordable bicycle servicing around Adelaide. Many bike stores over-price their work, and their servicing isn’t done to a high standard. At Bike Shack, we have eliminated the need to pay top dollar for a ‘top dollar job’.

Bike Shack has a long list of brands that we keep in stock and if we haven’t got it we can have it within a couple days. We stock parts, upgrades, consumables, tools, service kits, and much more.

Bike Servicing Q and A
While it’s common to do complete bike services, we find that the most common job we are called for is adjusting/indexing bike gears. Many people have problems shifting between gears and attempt to rectify this problem themselves, only resulting in greater ‘shipwreck’. The gears are a finely tuned system, and therefore should only be adjusted by someone who knows exactly what each adjustment does.
Bike services come in a variety of packages and therefore, prices. At Bike Shack, we offer a $90 service which covers the essentials of a bicycle service; gears, brakes, and an overall safety checkup. From there we can tailor the service to the customers needs. We also offer a ‘4-Star Service’ at $150, which delves deeper into major bearings and wheel alignments. Finally, a ‘5-Star Service’ valued at $220 is on offer for those looking to bring their bike’s performance to its maximum potential.
It is recommended that a bike be serviced routinely; both by a professional and by yourself. By having a professional check over your bike every 4-6 months (depending on regularity of use) you can ride knowing your bike is in no danger of failure or costly repairs. Between rides it is recommended to lubricate your chain, and keep your bike free of mud, dust, and other contaminants.
A bike service at Bike Shack involves a complete viewing of your bike; inspecting the safety, wear, and adjustment of all necessary components. We also offer an ‘on bike test’ to ensure it works as intended, both in and out of the stand. We also offer replacements for worn parts and suggestions on how to get the most longevity out of your bike.
When servicing bikes, there is no ‘rule of thumb’. Every bike is different, and thus takes various amounts of time to complete. That being said, most ‘3-Star Services’ are performed in 20-30 minutes, so long as there are no major issues uncovered in the process. ‘4-Star’ and ‘5-Star’ services are a little more involved, and consequently takes a little longer (40 mins – 1.5 hours). Likewise, these times may vary depending on what condition the bike is in.
