say what? why in the name of alpe d'huez would a bike shop encourage its customers to use its tools?
simple, really. we know how much fun it can be to build and fix our own bikes and soon you will too!
one of the main reasons we started maine bike works was because we personally wanted a well stocked, professionally equipped place to work on our own bikes and after years of wrenching in shops which had "no-customers-in-the-workshop" policies, we decided it was time someone gave our fellow riders a break and let them in on the fun. offering this type of access is expensive, so expect to pay something to play in the shop.
when you work on your own bike at maine bike works you'll enjoy having the right tools, equipment, and replacement parts on hand. sure sounds better than working on your bike again on your kitchen floor doesn't it?
in those instances where you lack the time or inclination to work on your own bike, we'll happily do it for you.top
we sell bikes for cyclist looking to answer the call of the eastern trail or adventures further afield.
when it comes to selling bikes, MBW does things a smidge differently than the regional chains.
instead of stocking dozens or hundreds of models, we do the exact opposite and only carry a few carefully curated favorites for your sizing and test riding purposes. once we help you decide on the perfect model, size and color, we'll order it up. when it arrives we'll build it or you can get hands-on and build it with us (if your bike qaulifies) - no extra charge for getting your hands greasy. pretty cool, huh?
