Service for your bike
Obsession Bikes have been servicing the bikes of BCBR since the event’s inception in 2007. Each of our mechanics have multiple years of experience working in multi-day stage races. These mechanics are considered to be some of the best in the business.
Our Purpose is to aid in ensuring that your bike makes it to the finish line.
As you are likely aware, the bicycle industry has seen an unprecedented increase in business volume. In addition to this, many factories which produce parts have been shut down and supply chains are broken. We have been working tirelessly to acquire parts for this year’s events and are sad to report that we will have a limited supply of parts. It is strongly recommended that you source parts at your local bike shop (LBS) before arriving at BCBR. Please read the list below outlining suggested parts to bring. In spite of the supply shortages, our mechanics are on site for you.
We offer many à la carte services so suit all racers needs.
