From adjustments to tune-ups, and flats to rebuilds we know bikes.
We have been looking after desert riders for more than 30 years. As the oldest bicycles shop in the Coachella Valley, the customer loyalty speaks for itself.
We work on all brands and models of bike: Giant, Cannondale, GT, Schwinn, Raleigh, Trek, and Specialized. Road, mountain, hybrid, cruisers and kids bikes--we handle them all. We also repair most major brand electric bikes but for electrical problems we are limited to the brands we sell -- Giant, Norco, Aventon, I-Zip, Raleigh, Cannondale, Bosch and Yamaha.
If you are new to riding in the desert, be aware that there are many plant thorns blowing along road curbs and sandy trails. Flat tires may occur anytime and for various reasons so we cannot warranty replacement tubes. Our shop replaces more than 3000 tubes annually.
We will pick up and deliver your service bike. Rates are based on your location and start as low as $25 per delivery to Palm Desert, $35 Rancho Mirage, Indian Wells, Cathedral City and $50 to Palm Springs, La Quinta and Indio.

Desert Thorns are responsible for most flat tires. We specialize in the fastest turnaround on flats in the Coachella Valley.
Bring your bike or rim in, and we will get to it right away. Except during our busiest time of the year, you don’t have to leave it if you can wait a few minutes. We offer both the basic tube and a Thorn Resistant (TR) tube for those who want to spend a bit more and get to go a bit further.
We carry Continental, Kenda, Schwalbe and Serfas tires in all sizes. 26, 27.5, 29 and 700.
We also carry a full line of CO2 cartridges and pumps if you need something on the road or in your home.

There are two things that make parts at Tri-A-Bike different. First, we do more than just carry standard parts like shifters, derailleurs, rims. As a real bike shop, we have a stock of hard to find items. Second, it is our knowledgeable staff make our parts better. .
Just read our testimonials. If we don’t have that hard to find item, we will let you know where to get it, or even better, order it for you. Just as importantly, we will help you install it. Looking after you is second nature at Tri-A-Bike.
We cannot be responsible for failures that occur during the normal course of riding but we will try to minimize labor costs for further repairs after a riding accident. Parts are warrantied by their manufacturer.
Bikes not picked up within 30 days, without prior arrangement, are considered abandoned and will be sold or donated.
30 DAY GUARANTEE
We guarantee all mechanical work and adjustments for 30 days—of course, we are not responsible failures that occur during the normal course of riding but we will try to minimize labor costs for further repairs after a riding incident.
Manufacturers’ warranties cover the parts we supply.
