Included with the purchase of any new bike from Global Bikes is our Famous FREE service for life policy. Our Free Service for Life Policy includes any mechanical related labor that is typically included in our $69 Tune-up. We will inspect your bike, adjust derailleurs, brakes, and hubs. (spoke installation additional) We'll lubricate the chain, wipe down the frame, air up tires, and in general go over your bike to get it rolling like new! We have offered this service for 17+ years and is a great example of what sets Global Bikes apart from the competition.
How Much Does This Cost?
Global Bikes does not charge anything for this service policy. Our service policy is simply one of the many benefits of buying a new bike from Global Bikes! (*Please see below for E-bike clarifications and expanded benefits)
How Often May I Bring My Bicycle in For My Free Tunes?
As often as you like! There is absolutely no limit. The rule of thumb, at a minimum, is to bring your bike back to one of the Global Bikes bicycle shops at least once every 1500 miles. If you do not ride 1500 miles a year bring it in on an annual basis.
What is This Service Worth?
Bicycles are very mechanical machines that need periodic maintenance for them to work properly. The price of a bicycle tune-up at any Gilbert, Chandler, or Tempe area bike shop is approaching $70.00. At $70.00 a Tune-Up servicing a bicycle can get expensive. Most people keep a bike for a decade or more, keeping in mind that bicycles should be tuned every 1500 miles or once a year, non-Global buyers could spend $500.00 on bicycle maintenance over the life of their bicycle. Please note many shops offer only one free 30-day check-up, or sell maintenance contracts similar to what we offer for free for the low price of $189.99! Not much of a deal to me when we do it for FREE! If you are thinking of buying a bike please consider us and our Free Service for Life Policy when you are making your decision.
