Repairs and Adjustments

Service comes first!

Our highly regarded repair services draw customers from not only Stanford but from all over the Bay Area. The Campus Bike Shop services more bikes – comfort bikes to pro road bikes, tandems and folding bikes – than any other bike shop in San Mateo County. We offer same day and next day service, provide a free loaner bike when you bring your bike in for a tuneup, and have lower rates than other local shops. While other shops focus on sales at the expense of service, we have 3 mechanics for every 1 sales person. We specialize in making your bike the best it can be.

Bring your bike in and we will assess your service needs or specific problem(s) at no charge. We will provide you a quote and, if you choose, sign you up for the tuneup and/or repairs. You may also give us a call, 650 723-9300, for a preliminary assessment and estimate of your tuneup or repair needs.
