About our workshop
Located just off Gloucester Road, we are Bristol’s best-kept secret. We fix bikes of all shapes and sizes, no matter the problem. Our friendly mechanics are professionally qualified, with between 5 and 25 years of experience in the cycle industry. We are a City & Guilds accredited training centre for bicycle mechanics, so when we’re not servicing bikes we also run bike maintenance courses. We offer all customers a free, no-obligation bike check and estimate.
