  • Tune-up on the bicycle.
  • Transported to the race transition, final adjustments made with the athlete the day prior to the race.
  • Bike drop-off following the race, and transported to our store. 
  • Bike disassembled and shipped back to the athlete. 
  • All shipping fees are the responsibility of the athlete and not included in the service

Before the race in detail:

  • Scheels will receive the Bike, and assemble the bike to your preferences.  We strongly suggest all bikes are here before Friday, August 29th, for proper time needed to assemble all bikes.  A bike on ground shipping from either coast can take a week to Des Moines, IA, so please plan accordingly to have your bike here by the specified date, before August 29th.
  • Scheels will set up your bike, and perform a tune-up on the bike.
  • We will bring your bike to the race site the day before the race, August 30th.
  • On Saturday, August 30th, transition opens at 2pm, where you can work with Scheel’s Barnetts Certified Technicians on your bike for any final repairs and adjustments.  Please have a photo ID when you pick up your bike.  For any special arrangements outside of transition day to receive your bike, contact Josh Wells per his information above. 
  • On the race morning, August 31st, we will be present for any final minor adjustments. 

After the Race in detail:

  • Scheels will transport your bike back to our store.  We ask you have your bike back to our tent at transition as soon as possible following your race.    
  • We will disassemble your bike, and prepare it for shipping in your personal bike case, or a bike box. 
  • Scheels will ask at time of service purchase over the phone if you will be providing your own return label.  For any reason we don’t receive a return label, we will charge your credit card at time of return service of your bike per your specifications on shipping. 
  • No bikes will leave our store until Tuesday, September 2nd, due to Monday being Labor Day. 

Return Labels

For those not providing a return label for shipping, we will charge your card at time of return service.  Your return label rate will be determined on the following, using UPS as a shipping provider:

  • Zipcode
  • Shipping arrival (Next Day, 2nd Day, or Ground service)
  • Insurance requested on the bike for shipping, shipping damages would be unfortunate.
  • Weight of the bike and contents
