Top 6 Places for a Bike Tune Up in Boulder, Colorado

When it comes to outdoor recreation, Boulder has no shortage of options for the adventurous soul. From hiking to skiing to running, the Front Range really does offer it all in abundance, including places to go when you need a little friendly maintenance on your equipment.

With that in mind and Old Man Winter now finally taking its closing breaths of the season, more and more of you are in the process of pulling your bikes back out to hit the trails or cruise around town. However, before jumping on your favorite two-wheeled friend, you may want to hit up one of our town’s charming bike shops for a quick seasonal tune up. Below is a list of recommended shops to visit and ensure that your bicycle is running smoothly this spring and summer.

Boulder Cycle Sport

Co-founded by two former CU undergrad kinesiology students, Boulder Cycle Sport has become a Boulder institution, being named as one of America’s Best Bike Shops for three consecutive years. The highly-regarded store offers an extensive amount of services and product line. Boasting one of the largest bicycle collections along the Front Range, Boulder Cycle Sport carries everything from cruisers to road bikes to Hybrids…and much more. Those interested in meeting new people along the trails should check out the Community Group Rides calendar Boulder Cycle Sport has on its website.

Colorado Multisport

As the name implies, Colorado Multisport is more than just a haven for cyclists. The business has also become a go-to place for runners and swimmers. With spring now upon us, one would be wise to take advantage of Colorado Multisport’s array of bicycle services that include safety check up, Olympic tune ups and even 1-on-1 bike training with a CMS mechanic. For those interested in upgrading to another bike this season, take a peek at their innovative Trade Up Program, which incorporates all kinds of incentives and deals to power into new bikes and equipment with ease.

LTD Cycleworkx

Vecchio’s Bicicletteria

For more than a decade now, cyclists of all walks of life have dropped by this iconic Pearl Street haunt for their biking needs.

No matter your make or model, Vecchio’s will get you quickly squared away and back riding.

University Bicycles

From rents to sales to service, University Bicycles does it all. Rather than offer an extensive selection of tune up services, University Bicycle incorporates a diagnosis and repair on individual bike basis. Inspired in 1985 inside a small basement location on Pearl Street, the shop has emerged into one of the most relied upon bike storefronts in the area thanks to their continued motto of honesty, friendliness, and integrity.

It’s not surprising that Boulder is continually ranked as one of the best places to live with over 300 days of sunshine and numerous outdoor activities to take part in.
