Full Cycle at Camp Fortune
Since we first opened our doors in 1994, our commitment to best serving our community has always remained core to our shop's operations. Now over 29-years later, the opening of our first trailside shop at Camp Fortune is an extension of that same commitment. Similar to many of you, we enjoy riding Camp Fortune's trails, but do not enjoy the toll it takes on our bikes—nothing dampens the enjoyment of a ride more than pesky mechanicals! To solve this issue, the shop will be offering minor trailside mechanical repairs in our workshop (located in Camp Fortune's main lodge). For more information about the workshop services, products, and additional services offered, make sure to keep reading!
Where is the new shop located?
Our newest shop is located inside Camp Fortune's main lodge at 300 Chemin Dunlop (Chelsea QC). It's around a 25-minute drive or a 1.5-hour bike ride from Ottawa's downtown core.
What workshop services are available?
The same walk-in workshop services that are offered at both of our Ottawa locations will be available from the new trailside shop location. The trailside shop's workshop is designed to remedy minor trailside mechanicals to get you back out as fast as possible. If your bike requires a more extensive overhaul and service, it will need to be booked in for service work at either of our Ottawa shop locations.
The following are service items that you can expect to receive while at our Fortune trailside shop:
- Change/ installation of the following: tire/ tube, chain, cassette, cable, derailleur, handlebar grips, tubeless tires, CushCore, and fenders;
- Adjustment of a derailleur(s), brake(s), headset, hub, and wheel truing;
- Suspension set up;
- and other minor servicing items.
