Hardcore Bikes has always been known as a “technical” bike shop. To maintain the high level of repair service that our customers have expected from us we have invested a great deal of time, money and effort in our repair shop. Our head mechanics have been trained in the Barnett’s system of bicycle repair which involves, wherever possible, quantifying adjustments. For example, bolts are not just tightened, they are torqued to the manufacture’s recommend value. Wheels are not just trued but also tensioned with a spoke tension meter ensuring the wheel is within the optimal range. Anyone can repair your bike by “feel” but we believe you deserve a higher standard of service.
Give our service department a try, you will not be disappointed.

All of our work is guaranteed!

We Take Trade-Ins | HARDCORE BIKES

We get lots of calls asking how much certain bikes are worth and honestly without seeing it there is no way to tell. If you want to see what we have for used bikes check out our Specials page here. Oh, and the one in the picture, we sold already so don't call about that one. Its value is determined by it's original value, its condition, and its age. Want that new bike but don't know how to get rid of that old one first.


Get Ready for Winter | HARDCORE BIKES

We have the tools to keep you fit this winter so you come Spring you can be as fit or fitter than you are now. It took you all summer to get that fitness going, why lose it all now and have to start over in the Spring.
