Servicing Menu

All prices listed below are advisory. We’ll give you a proper estimate when we assess your bike at our workshop.  Listed prices are for labour only and exclude all parts.  We are also sometimes able to save you money by recycling good condition second-hand parts. Please speak to our mechanic about this when you drop your bike in. 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 £35)

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

Silver service (from £65)

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.


Please note: Prices below are advisory only and do not include the cost of new parts. You can save up to 50% by opting to use second-hand parts. Please speak to our mechanic about this when you drop your bike in.
