    Bike cleaning / wash/ detailing in Vancouver?

    I am too lazy to clean my bike. Yes, I know how to clean it. I just don't want to.

    Yes, I know this makes me a bad person. I am comfortable with that.

    Do you know of anywhere in Vancouver that offers bike cleaning or detailing? I don't need a full checkup or tune up or overhaul. I just want it cleaned once in a while, by someone other than me. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    I've never heard of that service but I'm sure it's available. You can get anything done if you're willing to pay.
    Likely those high end bike shops (you know the ones) will do it for a price. Their service and sales revenues flatten after the monsoons set in, so this would be an opportunity.

    How much are you willing to pay? I'm sure if you checked in with some LBS's you could find a place that'll do it for you. Alternatively, put it out there on Craigslist with a suggested price and I'm sure some enterprising cycle enthusiast will offer to wash your bike. Hell, if the price is right, I might even offer to do it!
