EL Jefé: $125.00
Most comprehensive service; Drive train is removed and degreased in solvent tank. Includes intensive frame/wheel cleaning, 10% discount on parts and includes all other aspects of the "El Nino". The "El Jefe" is recommended for a bicycle that needs attention beyond adjustments – this would also be a good time to check the wear on all drivetrain components; if you replace your chain before it exceeds its wear tolerances, you can save your cassette and chainrings!
El Niño: $75.00
Adjustment of front and rear brakes, front and rear derailleurs, lubing of all components, airing up tires and minor cleaning. The "El Nino" is recommended for bikes that just aren't shifting or breaking properly – one of the most common bikes we get in need of this tune-up are those that have sat in the garage or on the side of the house for a little too long.
