How to have your bike serviced through Bike Root’s full-service program:
1. Schedule an appointment (big green “Schedule Appointment” button on this page)
2. Drop off the bike(s) at the scheduled time and ideally stick around and watch or return when it is complete, typically about an hour.
How long will it take to have my bike(s) serviced at Bike Root?
-We will do our best to have your bike(s) ready within 2 hours.
How/when do I pay?
-Payment will be accepted after the job is complete, either by credit, debit, or cash.
I need a specific task completed on my bike that is not listed in the service packages. Can you help me with this?
-Possibly! Let us know when scheduling your appointment, and if we cannot accommodate, we’ll let you know.
Is there anything you can’t do?
-Bike Root does not currently have the tools and the skill set to properly work on hydraulic disc brakes, suspension components, or tubeless tires. Try asking another bike shop to see if they’re fully equipped to work on those components!
Do mechanics receive compensation for their work?
-Yes, Bike Root mechanics will receive a portion of every service job applied to their University of Calgary tuition.
How can I become a Bike Root mechanic?
-Must be able to know a wide variety of bike repair skills, verified by an existing Bike Root mechanic. Compensation will only be applied toward UofC tuition, and you can express your interest at firstname.lastname@example.org.
