Bristol bike servicing

Female mechanic looking through spokes of bike wheel

Whether it’s a tune-up, some TLC, or a specific problem needing expert attention - we are the people for you!  Our expert mechanics can fix any problem - all at affordable prices. Book your bike in using our short, online form.  For more information about our workshop, use the page menu below.

Due to an unexpectedly high volume of enquiries, we find ourselves with a 3 – 6 week waiting list. Please only book if you are happy to wait that long. We apologise for the inconvenience: we are working hard to meet this demand.

Please note that during the COVID-19 lockdown all servicing is by appointment only.  For safety reasons, we can’t serve anyone who shows up without an appointment.

Servicing Menu

All prices listed below are advisory. We will give you a proper estimate when we assess your bike at our workshop.  Listed prices are for labour only and exclude all parts.   Please note:  We can also do “ad hoc” work (e.g. fixing a puncture). Click here for ad hoc job prices.

Professional bike assessment (free)

We’ll carry out a comprehensive bike check – plus a breakdown and estimate of any work needed.  All estimates are “no obligation” and we will never start work before we have agreed on it with you.  

Bronze service (from £30)

This is a full safety-check and bike adjustment, plus a complete tune-up of brakes and gears. 

Silver service (from £60)

We cover everything in the Bronze service, plus a replacement of all durable parts: If needed we can replace your brake and/or gear cables, brake pads, cassette and chain.  We recommended this service every 3 to 9 months, depending on how you use your bike. 

Gold service (from £120)

This includes everything in the Silver service, plus a hub, headset and bottom bracket service.

Bike cleaning

A clean bike will always work better than a dirty bike! The best time to clean a bike is when it’s stripped down during a service.  We can offer a full cleaning service to get your bike not only looking beautiful but working better.      

From £15 (depending on the condition).

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.

All our friendly mechanics are professionally qualified, with between 5 and 25 years’ 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. Simply book an appointment and we’ll take it from there.

Please note that during the COVID-19 lockdown all servicing is by prior appointment only. We will be unable to serve you if you show up without an appointment.

Our charitable work

Life Cycle is a registered charity (1077575): By choosing us for your bike service, you are also supporting our work with the local community.
