Service Contract
LIFE TIME of FREE SERVICE for the life of original ownership of any new bicycle purchased; including two annual Tune-Ups consisting of brake, gear, and bearing adjustments, as well as wheel truing.

**Papa Wheelies Lifetime Tune Policy Change**
Effective 8/1/15
We have sold a lot of bikes over the years and every new bike we sell has always come with a life time of free of service, which by the way is pretty awesome! Due to the increased demands over the past two seasons it has been difficult to turn around service work in a reasonable time during our busy spring/summer months, and for this, we apologize. Because of this we have had to re-examine what "Lifetime" service really means. What it means is we want to continue to offer our valued customers the best and most beneficial service to go along with their new bike purchase. Going forward all Papa Tunes will be abolutely free during our slower months (August 1st - Febuary 28th). You can still bring your bike in anytime for a tune up, but in March, April, May, June & July you will have to pay a $25.00 surcharge. We thank you for your support and your business, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to us at 603-427-2060 or by email at 

Extras subject to individual labor charges include; overhauls, drive train cleaning, spoke repair, parts and accessory installations, disk brake bleeding and suspension maintenance.

** Did you get a great deal on parts or accessories elsewhere? We're happy to help you out, but please respect our applicable labor charges for installs or service related needs.
