Bicycle Repair Service by Neutral Cycle Workshop – An Independent Bike Shop in Urbana, Illinois
What do we work on?
We work on almost anything that you can pedal and ride – bicycles, tricycles, recumbents, triathlon bicycles, mass market bicycles and more! If you’re not sure please call the shop at 217-979-2471 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask us. We will do some work on pedal assist electric bikes, but unfortunately we cannot service motors, do electric/gas conversions or bring anything with a gas engine into the shop.
Bring your bicycle into the shop for a free estimate and we can get your maintenance scheduled! Once we examine a bike we can hold onto it until the work is done or schedule an appointment for service. We generally will not schedule any work without seeing the bike in person. Work is done on a first-come, first served basis.
We offer much more than what is listed here! Please call, email or stop by the shop to inquire about service on your bike!
