TBR Service Dept.

On a bicycle we can go three or four times faster than a pedestrian, but use five times less energy in the process. It's also a lot of fun.

The advantages of cycling are diminished when your bike isn't properly tuned, or is poorly fit. This is why we start every repair with thorough diagnosis. First, we invest our time in problem definition. We make sure we’re solving the right problem before we begin implementing solutions. The solution to the wrong problem is useless.

A common example of an often misinterpreted issue we see in our shop is a misaligned wheel which manifests as braking issues. Once the wheel has been properly straightened, the brakes can be snugged to provide optimum braking modulation and stopping power.
