Service

Service is the absolute heart of our business. We pride ourselves in offering state of the art expertise on state of the art equipment, bicycles and skis. Year round our techs can provide you with the latest advice on upgrades, maintenance, and repair. Whether it be a "tricked out" dual suspension off-road machine, a sleek road racer, a pair of telemark or skating skis - we can keep them in top performing condition.

As the largest bicycle and x-country ski repair facility in Northern New England, we surround ourselves with the best technology in tools and training. But high tech is not the only language we speak. Our staff will tune your one, two and three speed cruiser, or pine tar those beautiful wood skis to perfection. We know, because we use them too.

When it comes to snow, Vermont can serve up a variety of conditions and our shop is ready for them. When you bring you skis or snowboard to us, you will get them back with the "edge" you need.

Finally, all service at the Skirack is fully guaranteed with a smile.
