Certified Technicians

Last month Takoda, Mark and Nathan took part in a 4 day training course at the Bikeroom in Vancouver . They went over all the major components of a mountain bike to sharpen their skills. This included diagnostics of suspension issues, full damper and air chamber services on Fox and RockShox. Complete rebuilds of Rockshox Reverb dropper posts. Sram and Shimano brake overhauls, from master cylinders to pistons and which DOT fluid is best in Sram brakes. And a full day on wheel building which included tips on what gauge of spoke is best. This training added on to previous Trek Certified service training they took part in last year at Trek headquarters in Wisconsin.

They all received a certificate, showing they are equipped to offer the best service for your bicycle.

Stop by and book your service today with our Certified Technicians!
