Here at Alaska Bicycle Center our philosophy is that we can make your old bike just as good as - if not better than - new. Some shops will often take one look at a major repair and encourage you to simply buy a new bike instead of fixing your current bike.
We continually strive to repair as many possible bicycles!
If your bike needs repair, or if you think your bike may be beyond repair, come on down to see us. You might be surprised at just how awesome your bike actually is and how little it could cost to restore it to its full glory!
We offer free estimates on any bicycle no matter the make or model!
