- as the lockdown eases I am taking on repairs and servicing again.

Covid 19 - all work is carried out using single-use gloves, with social distancing and face-coverings when the bike owner is at the workshop. There will usually be only one customer's bike at the workshop at time.


An appointment system is in operation for the workshop, with work normally completed on the same day - simplest is to email your request (you will normally receive a reply within 3 hours) using the online form.

All work will have an initial assessment and a fixed cost agreed - any variations as a result of findings during the work will be advised and approval obtained before proceeding.

Basic parts and consumables are stocked but some components will need to be ordered.

Work not outlined below can also be carried out - from checking/assembling (PDI) a bike bought online to complete bike-builds or frame-swaps.

The two service options:

BASIC SERVICE - a thorough check for low/infrequent usage bikes, or just getting back on the road   £30

  • Safety check (bolts/torque settings etc)
  • Brakes checked and adjusted (new blocks/pads fitted if required)
  • Gear cables oiled and gears reset (cables replaced if needed)
  • Cranks removed and re-greased
  • Chain & cassette checked for wear
  • Tyres checked and inflated to the correct pressure
  • Bike wiped down with degreaser and lubrication as required

INTERMEDIATE SERVICE - the popular one - comprehensive checks for bikes in regular use  £45

  • Seat post removed, greased and re-fitted
  • Wheels checked and hubs serviced (bearings replaced if required)
  • Chain & cassette checked for wear
  • Tyres checked and inflated to the correct pressure
  • Brakes checked and adjusted (new pads fitted if needed)
  • Gear cables oiled and gears correctly indexed and adjusted (cables replaced if required)
  • Bottom bracket removed, frame re-greased cranks cleaned and re-installed
  • Headset removed cleaned and re-greased
  • Bike clean and lubrication as required

BIKE BUILD FOR A BOXED PURCHASE

Bikes bought online will arrive in a large cardboard box in various states - some partially "knocked down" and some almost ready to ride - in either case they need careful assembly and checking with correct torque settings on components etc.

Unpack, build, mechanical and safety checks  £25
