maine bike works?

a relaxed, attitude-free bike shop serving all of new england.

friendly folks at mbw

maine bike works is a small by choice, owner run shop whose aim is to become new england's nerdiest touring, bikepacking, adventuring and tandeming destination while continuing to offer the custom builds and fair repair services our reputation was built on.

to help you find your next n+1 (or n+2 if you're after a tandem), we draw on bikes from our buddies at Rivendell Bicycle Works, Co-Motion Cycles, Tout Terrain, Salsa, Kona, Surly, Crust, Velo Orange, Lauf, Soma, Rodeo Adventure Labs as well as 57 other brands and (get this) we acutally stock alternative drivetrained bikes you can test ride built up with Rohloff Speedhubs, Pinion 18 Speed Gearboxes and Gates Carbon Belt Drives - yup, you read that right.

we also offer collaborative builds from the frame up, teach repair classes and offer bench/tool hire to those wanting to become one with their own bikes.

conveniently located in saco, maine on u.s. route 1 (885 portland road) across from Frank Galos Chevrolet on the auto mile. minutes from i-95, downtown saco, old orchard beach, scarborough and portland. only 45 mins north of portsmouth, nh and 90 mins north of boston, ma.

if you need a repair done fast & for a fair price, there's no better place to bring your bike. :)

your choice: we'll fix your bike or you can work on it yourself.

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 on your kitchen floor again 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.

bike brands Maine Bike Works sells

our bike philosophy

it's a big world - ride it.

we sell tandems and single 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 up. when it arrives, either we'll build it or you can build it with us (bikes >$2k have $350 MBW Build-Your-Own-Bike session included free) - pretty cool, huh?

we sell kick-ass bikes and frames from:

  • Salsa Cycles
  • Kona Bikes
  • Surly
  • and 61 other brands!
