Bike Service and Repair

We take Service Appointments and deliver.  Get more mileage from better maintenance.

Call 760-340-2840 to book an appointment and discuss your needs.

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 bicycle 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 most electrical problems we are limited to the brands we sell.

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.  If you do see the head of a thorn in your tire do not remove it as it temporarily seals your tube.

We will pick up and deliver your service bike.  One way 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.

Tire Repair

Desert thorns are responsible for most flat tires. 

We will replace your tube within 24 hours during our busy times.    

We offer both standard tubes and a Thorn Resistant (TR) tube for those who want to spend a bit more and get a thicker tube.

We can also add liquid tire sealant to your tubes.

We carry a full line of CO2 cartridges and pumps if you need something on the road or in your home.

Bike Parts

We do more than just carry standard parts like shifters, derailleurs, rims.  We have other hard to locate items and knowledgeable staff to recommend substitutes.

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 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.


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.


If you don’t have the time or ability to bring your bike to us, just give us a call at 760-340-2840. We’ll pick your bike up, bring it to our location in Palm Desert, and when it’s ready, you can stop by Tri-A-Bike or we’ll deliver it back to you.

Phone us to schedule your bike service today.
