Bicycle repair is a craft, an art, and an ethos. Totem reflects this approach with great service at a fair price, and honest advice. We pay attention to detail and treat every bike as if it were our own. Vintage restorations, commuter tuning, MTB/CX/Road maintenance, suspension service and wheelbuiling/repair are just a few of the things we specialize in. Personalized service to fit your needs.
Same-day service on most minor repairs and adjustments.* Enjoy a stroll and sample the area’s characteristic stores, restaurants and coffee shops while you wait for your bike.
*Totem is a one-man shop; as such repairs are turned out as quickly as possible, but during busy times things can get backed up. If you’re on a tight schedule and need something done same-day please call ahead to check availability. Maintenance requires dropping the bike off for more in-depth work, such as overhauls or full tunes, and is typically scheduled with a 1++ day turnaround. Ask about appointments if you can’t leave your bike with us for more than a couple days.
