Maintenance, Repairs and Servicing
Fed up of being patronised by unhelpful mechanics? Just want to get an honest repair job done? We can help!
We specialise in providing helpful, friendly, cost-effective servicing and repairs. We're happy to work on those older and more unusual bikes that some other shops won't touch, and we keep a good stock of second-hand parts to bring the costs down. Our mechanic is Cytech level 2 qualified, and it goes without saying that we always take a professional, thorough approach to working on any bike old or new, cheap or expensive.
Basic Service: £25 + parts
Full Service: £40 + parts
Brakes Service: £8.50 + parts (front or rear)
Gears Service: £8.50 + parts (front or rear)
Wheel Truing: £10
Tuition, any other work: £30/hr
Please see the price list for a description of what's included in each type of service.
We always carry out a full assessment on every bike so you'll know exactly where you stand before you commit to any servicing.
The workshop is normally booked up a few days in advance so it's best to phone us to make an appointment.
"Just wanted to thank you for doing a really good job with my bike yesterday. I could really tell the difference when I cycled it home, it feels so much smoother and easier to ride and my new knowledge of the gear workings is a big help!!"

To thoroughly check the tyre and wheel, remove any glass/thorns, fit a new tube, and refit the tyre and wheel costs £15 including a good quality Schwalbe or Continental inner tube, and can normally be done while you wait.
Alternatively we now have a customer pump and basic tools outside, so if you prefer to just buy a puncture repair kit or inner tube you can do the work yourself for free. (See our video tutorial and our basic maintenance info sheet for a few tips).
Or for around £15 we can teach you how to fix a puncture yourself, so you'll never have to pay again!
