Bike Repairs

MSU Bikes is the one-stop location for all of your bike and wheelchair* repair needs. We offer a full menu of repair services including flat tire repairs, wheel straightening and replacement, brake and shifting adjustments, and tune-ups. Repairs are not available for purchase online; please bring your bike or wheelchair* into the Bessey Hall shop for a free estimate.
(*Wheelchairs and other hand or electric-powered mobility devices are included.)

Here are some common repairs and labor costs below.

Flat Tire Repairs

$10 labor + tube
We can generally repair a flat tire in 10-15 minutes if we’re not slammed and not the last 30 min. of our work day. We replace tubes; we don’t patch them but do sell patches and tubes over the counter if you’d like to save some $$. Our DIY bike repair station outside the Center has everything you need to change a tube and much more.

Brake Adjustments

$14 + parts
If your brakes aren’t working very well during dry weather they’ll be very dangerous when it gets wet. Get them adjusted sooner than later!

Shift Adjustments

$14 + parts
If your bike doesn’t shift through your gears like it used to we can get them working right again.

Replace a Chain/ Freewheel/ Cassette

$10 + parts
If your bike has sat for a long time outside and the chain has seized up or you’ve just put a lot of miles on your bike and it’s skipping when you’re putting power to your pedals then you most likely need a new chain and possibly your freewheel or cassette (the gears on the rear wheel).

Basic Tune-Up

$65 + any needed parts
Regular maintenance will keep your bike running smoothly. The tune-up is perfect for bikes that have been well used or not used for a long time. Includes basic wheel truing, chain lubricating the drivetrain, tire inflation, general safety check, minor frame cleaning, and adjustments (where applicable/ possible) of:

  • hubs
  • headset
  • crankset/ bottom bracket (if applicable)
  • brakes
  • shifting system

Pump and Polish

$25 + any needed parts
The 'Pump and Polish' service is perfect for bikes that have been well-maintained and only require a quick check over and minor adjustments. Our staff will be happy to tell you if your bike is a candidate for this service.

New Bike Safety Check Over

$35 + any needed parts
If you bought your bike online in a box and assembled yourself or from a big-box store and want to make sure your bike is safe to ride, this service is for you.
