Servicing & Repairs

We are a Cytech accredited workshop and a member of the Association of Cycle Traders, so you can be sure we will look after your bike as if it was our own. We are qualified and equipped to perform all types of work from a simple pedal swap, to a complete strip down and rebuild.

PLATINUM Service – £150

Okay, we are the first to admit that for most bikes/owners, our flagship service is overkill! In addition to everything in the GOLD Service, we strip your bike down to the bare frame before painstakingly rebuilding and re-greasing all components and finishing with a Miracle Shine polish.

*Bottom Bracket Removed, Inspected and Replaced/Re-fitted

*Headset Inspected and Replaced/Re-fitted

*Hub Bearings Inspected for Wear, Replacements installed if necessary

GOLD Service – £80

By far our most popular service. Everything in the SILVER Service plus we will adjust the spoke tension on both wheels to prolong their life and increase braking effectiveness. We will also remove your wheels and give them and the rest of your bike a good clean in our in-store Bike Spa.

*DriveSystem, Brake Pads, Tires, Rims, Bottom Bracket Checked for Wear

*Brakes adjusted, Gears adjusted (Hanger Alignment Checked, Limit bolts adjusted)

*Headset adjusted, All Bolts torqued

*Bike Tested or Road Under Load, All Gears and Brakes Tested on Road

SILVER Service – £50

Setting up gears and cable operated rim/disc brakes within the constraints of existing component wear and wheel trueness. Quick frame wipe down.

NB This Service does not include labour for replacing any parts necessary to get your bike working at its best. If any parts (e.g. cables, brake blocks etc.) need replacing then the GOLD Service will be the cheapest option. And you have a clean bike!

Safety Check – £20

One of our mechanics will spend 15-20 minutes checking over your bike for any safety issues. This isn’t enough time to do proper gear and brake servicing but includes torquing all accessible bolts, inflating tires to the correct pressure, lubricating the chain, and any other useful “tweaks” they can get done during the time.

*No replacement parts installed on this service
