Blue Line Bike Lab Service Menu


Service Policies:

  • Our shop labor rate is $75/hr. 
  • All Tune Up packages must include an additional $4 shop supply charge. 
  • Tune Ups do not include any parts unless specifically listed.  Additional labor charges may apply for the installation of parts or accessories.
  • Bikes left longer than 30 days after completion are subject to $6/day storage fee. Bikes left longer than 30 days after completion will either be sold to recover the cost of the repair or donated to a local charity.
  • Excessively dirty or muddy bikes are subject to a $25 cleaning fee.
  • A word about E-bike service- Here at Blue Line Bike Lab, we're committed to keeping Houstonians on the road. It's very important to us that you enjoy riding your bike, and we work hard to stay up to date on all things related to servicing the mechanical parts of bicycles, including electric bikes. We do need to make it clear, however, that we do not service any of the electric drive or computer components on any brand of electric bicycle, and in fact we ask that when you drop your e-bike off for maintenance that you remove the battery from your bike and take it with you. We have also begun to see a rapid uptick in the number of low-cost imported internet-direct e-bikes needing service, and we're always happy to take a look and see what we can do to get those bikes rolling, but we do ask that our  customers be aware that there are often parts on those bikes that are not well designed and do not function properly. We reserve the right to refuse service on any bicycle or e-bike that we feel is unsafe, and apologize for any inconvenience that that may cause.
