    Central Indiana mechanics

    Hello everyone- I just nabbed an 87 Schwinn Prelude for a song and I'd like to have it overhauled. Any suggestions on where I should take it? I'm a short-term transplant so I'm not terribly aware of the options. I prefer working with independents.

    Central Indiana covers a lot of ground. In Bloomington I like Bikesmiths and the Bicycle Doctor. Both have done a good job on my 1984 or 8e Raleigh Team USA Sport Tour. I have no experience with Bicyle Garage Indy, but they do have an article on selling old bikes, so may be a good resource for a vintage overhaul.

    This is an old post, but I'll reply with a plug for Nebo Ridge in Zionsville. We've been using them exclusively for the past ~2 years now. There are plenty of fine shops in/around Indy, but I drive past 3-4 other shops between my house to get to Nebo.
