Basically, I would like my bike taken completely apart, cleaned, put back together, and re-tuned. I'm sure she really just needs some fine adjustments here and there by a keen mechanic, but I imagine it might be "good" for me and the bike to have it totally "re-built".
How much should I expect them to charge me for this service, assuming no parts are needed?
My bike is a Giant Escape 2, it's only a $400 bike, fast approaching 4k miles.
I can't afford a whole new bike right now.
But, I do plan on riding 300-400 miles a month if possible, so some investment is definitely needed, somehow.
If a full inside out cleaning/tuning can be had for around 100$, I'll be happy.
Is there a reputable mechanic on this forum in the NYC area who would want this kind of work?
If you are within range of my apartment, I would ride the bike to you, and wait/watch/help you with the project.
Any thoughts, or ideas on this subject is appreciated, thanks.
