Mechanic

The Official Mechanic of the Pisgah Stage Race

Sycamore_HorizNot only is Sycamore Cycles the official mechanic and a premier sponsor of the Pisgah Stage Race, they’re also past competitors and category winners. These guys are serious racers who train on Pisgah’s trails at least 5 days a week, so they know what it takes to make your bike ready day after day.

How it works:

Drop off your clean bike at the Sycamore Cycles tent.  Our mechanic will go over any problems you have and give an estimate for the repair.  They will then transport your bike to their shop to perform the specified repairs.  The following morning, your bike will be waiting for you at the start no later than 8am.

This service is limited to 35 riders per stage.  By signing up early Sycamore Cycles will commit to having parts in stock to fix your bike.  Of course they can’t have every part for every bike but they will have parts to fix common issues on your bike.  Early sign up is highly recommended.   To pre-register for mechanic service, please fill out the Bike Information Form and return it to Sycamore Cycles at [email protected]
