No matter what kind of problem you have with your bike, bring it to Higher Gear and we’ll figure out the best way to fix it. From silencing squeaks to wheel building, wheel truing to derailer adjustment, overhauling hubs to brake maintenance, we’ll take care of your bike because we want to keep you safe on the road.

In fact, if something happens when you’re out with your bike, call us — if we can, we’ll come out to help.

Here are some videos that give you an idea of what we can do.

With a spoke threader, we can cut and thread a spoke for use on the wheel.

To make your bike most efficient, it’s important to make sure your wheels are true. This means wheels are an exact circle and that the spoke tension is equal all the way around.

The service team at Higher Gear primarily uses a spoke tension adjustment tool and a wheel truing machine to achieve the best results.
