Every season brings new changes to and applications of many different technologies.

Our Service staff continuously uses a combination of periodic training classes, technical updates from bicycle and component manufacturers, and other sources of ongoing education to maintain current awareness of all the applicable bicycling technologies.

Using and understanding these technologies and how they can best work together is an important goal of our Service Department.

Our Service staff can identify problems and sometimes prevent others simply through their deep knowledge of the interaction of different types of components and technologies working together.

Bicycles and their underlying technologies have changed over the years. As more advanced types of materials and components are used, the old “fix it yourself” tools and techniques people are familiar with from twenty years ago don’t always work.

Prescott Valley Bike Works is constantly upgrading and buying the correct tools to service and install these new technologies. In some cases, without these special tools, you can actually damage your frame, components, or yourself.

Our Service staff is trained in the use of these tools ranging from complex frame prepping and alignment tools to those used for basic adjustments.

Our staff can help you understand the technologies used in your bicycle.

Prescott Valley Bike Works has qualified mechanics who can help discuss the problems and choices you have when considering all the maintenance and repair issues associated with bicycle ownership.

The service staff at Prescott Valley Bike Works is very experienced.

This means that you can have the confidence that your bicycle will be repaired, maintained, and tuned by people who know the appropriate application for your specific cycling style.

Pedals. You have three choices of pedals: platforms, toe clips and clipless pedals.

Since your feet aren’t attached to simple platform pedals, they don’t allow you to maximize your stroke; all you can do is push down, but not pull up.

Toe clips (also known as “toe cages”) allow you to use more of the pedal stroke. The drawback is they need to be snug, which makes them harder to pull out of for quick stops.

Clipless pedals, which attach directly to a cleat in the bottom of your shoe, take a little getting used to, but with practice you’ll be able to get in and out of them in a snap, as well as get the most out of your pedal stroke.
