Services in Detail

Before the race:

Scheels will receive the Bike, and assemble the bike to your preferences. We strongly suggest all bikes are here before Friday, August 30th, 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.

Scheel’s Barnetts Certified Technicians will work with the athletes on their bike for any final repairs and adjustments on August 30th.

On the race morning, August 31st, we will be present for final minor adjustments.

After the race:

Scheels will transport your bike back to our store. We ask you have your bike back to our tent at transition before the Elite races begins.

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 2, 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


The standard fee for the service is $170.

Earlybird Pricing: If you pay before 8/1, we will take $50 off the price of your bike service fees, $120
