At Red Lantern Bicycles, we believe that bicycles are one of human kinds’ greatest inventions.

We also believe that they are the best way to get around this great city. That’s why we specialize in helping you, the commuter.


Our Bicycle Repair Services

Aside from the usual bike shop repairs and duties that you would expect from a fine establishment like ours (i.e. tune ups, brake and gear adjusts, wheel trues, flat changes), we also offer some highly skilled and specialized services. Every bike shop is going to tell you that they do it all and that they are the best. But we’re gonna tell you everything we can do. Below is a list of some advanced work that we do and the services that we offer. And with our streamlined process, you’ll be riding out of here in no time at all. If you have any questions, want to know about pricing, or need something done that you don’t see, feel free to call or shoot us an email.

Along with knowledge of SRAM, Shimano, and Campagnolo groupsets, we also have a familiarity with old, outdated, and plain weird French, Italian, and Swiss components. Basically, we have a  deep and extensive knowledge of all things bike:


We’ll strip your bike down to the frame and build it back up again.  Work includes new grease, new ball bearings, new cables and housing, new brake pads, and of course, a full cleaning and a tune up.



Similar to our overhaul, but with a little extra somethin’ somethin’. Along with the overhaul, we’ll send out parts to be chromed and the frame to be repainted.

Custom Builds

'Custom' doesn't necessarily mean expensive. Bring us a frame, some parts, or a sketch on a napkin, and we will build you exactly what you want. From inexpensive commuters to high end builds, we’ll sit down with you and work out every detail, soup to nuts. You will ride out of here with something that fits your body, fits your riding style, fits your personality, and fits your budget.

Hand Built Wheels

With some of the best wheel builders in town working here and access to just about any rim and hub on the market, we will build you some beautiful hand built wheels. With the quality and care we put into our work, these wheels may be the last wheels you’ll ever buy.

Disc Brakes


We know the market. Avid, Shimano, Tektro, Formula, Migora, and Hope hydraulic disc brakes. Capable of hose and pad installation. We’re also experts at bleeding all of the above systems.

Internally Geared Hubs

We have extensive knowledge of all internally geared hubs. We can overhaul of Sturmey Archer, Shimano, Shimano Alphine, Shimano Nexus, and SRAM hubs. We are also very familiar with installations and adjustments of Nuvinci and Rohloff hubs.

Electronic Shifting

We're very familiar with Di2 Shimano Electronic and Campagnolo EPS systems including proper installation of parts and electric wire installations. As well as precise front and rear shifting adjustment.

Tubular Gluing

You got that right. Sew ups. We know the proper gluing and correct mounting techniques needed for these highly specialized rims and tires.

Belt Drive Bicycles

Installation of belts and proper belt tension.

We can also wire up both old and new generators, generator hubs, and lights.
