Bike servicing, repairs, spares and complete bike builds

 

Why buy a new bike when we can overhaul your old bike
and get it running as good as new?

We offer individual repairs or fixed price servicing. We also offer upgrades and full bike builds using your parts, or we can source, purchase and fit suitable parts on your behalf. Please contact us to discuss your repair, servicing, parts replacement or bike building requirements.

As an indication, below are our standard servicing costs (labour only, extra costs will be advised if any parts are required). For individual repair or replacement parts costs please ask for a quote.

Please note the above costs do not include any new parts. We will advise if any parts are required, and the cost of parts and labour, before proceeding with any additional work.

Bikes need to be reasonably clean before they can be worked on. We can clean a bike, but there is a charge of £10. Bikes that are in a very poor state of maintenance can involve extra work to strip down or adjust components, where this work is excessive this will increase the labour charge.

We are particularly experienced in building fixed-wheel and single-speed bikes and can also arrange resprays and powder-coating in a wide range of colours and finishes if required.

*Price is for non-suspension bikes. Please ask for a quote for bikes with suspension.

ADDITIONAL SERVICE / REPAIR ITEMS

Bike wash – £10
Bikes need to be reasonably clean before we can service them so we can clean your bike for you carefully and using products which are safe and efficient before working on it. Or, if you just don’t fancy cleaning the bike yourself we’re here to help!

Supply and fit our standard brake blocks or pads – £10 per wheel
Our standard brake blocks, pads and inserts are carefully researched to give great performance in all conditions. Please ask for a quote if you have a particular brand or type preference.

Supply and fit our standard brake cable – £10 each
We only use stainless steel inner cables and high quality outer cable, ferrules and cable end crimps for smooth brake operation and improved corrosion resistance. Please ask for a quote if you have a particular brand or type preference.
N.B. For internally routed cables we charge 50% more as it takes a little longer to install them.

Supply and fit our standard gear cable – £10 each
We only use stainless steel inner cables and high quality outer cable, ferrules and cable end crimps for accurate gear changing and improved corrosion resistance. Please ask for a quote if you have a particular brand or type preference.
N.B. For internally routed cables we charge 50% more as it takes a little longer to install them.

Wheel hub strip, clean and regrease – £15 each
If there is lateral play in your wheel it probably means the bearing tension (cones or sealed bearing caps) need tightening. We prefer to strip, clean and regrease as it’s likely water has got in and flushed out the old grease.

Wheel straighten – £15 each
Spokes will be retensioned to straighten minor wheel buckling. If the wheel can’t be straightened in this way because the buckle is too bad there will be no charge.
If a spoke or spokes are broken there will be an additional charge of £2 per spoke to replace (standard stainless steel straight or butted spokes. Aero spokes are extra, please ask for a quote).
