I'm looking for a cheap but reliable place. Anyone know where or who can help me? Even if you could do the tuneup that'd be cool

Good luck getting it done quickly if you are looking to a shop to do it, most places are very booked up.

I recommand Calgary Cycle for everything!

Cyclepath south and bow cycle are great but they are very busy and like redline says, book early!

Ridleys cycle, better techs and less wait :P

This time of year I'd say count on at least a month wait for places such as Cyclepath or Bow Cycle.

If you are up for it you can do quite a bit on your own by searching on the internet. With the exception of shock cleanouts, and major derailleur problems the average person can do most of it by themselves.

Do it yourself!!!! Bike tune-ups are really easy, search the net.

I recommend mountain bike city 'cause i used to work there.
If you do it yourself and need and hand i can help out

Yeah, learning it yourself is sooo much cheaper and more convenient too. And then if something happens on the trail you can actually fix it instead of having a minor cable tension problem ruin your ride.

The Outdoor Program Centre at the U of C has a few one night classes on home bike repair. I took those a few years ago and found them to be very helpful. A lot easier than trying to just figure it out on your own.
