Workshop

Bicycle Repairs, Servicing and Bike Fitting

Our technicians are qualified to service and repair bicycles, tandems and tricycles whether they have been bought from us or not.  There is no need to call us to book workshop time as we can take the bike in at your convenience. We will need the cycle for several days depending on workshop load. A free estimate can be provided before any work is carried out.

 We would appreciate if at all possible that all cycles brought in for servicing are cleaned. Any cycle that is excessively dirty and requires our technicians to clean them may incur an extra charge. This is for the health and safety of our staff.

Puncture Repair - £5.00

Let us do it for you and feel safe in the knowledge that not only will we  replace the tube, we will also check the tyre for cuts, glass or thorns, realign the brakes and make sure the gears are still shifting sweetly when it all goes back together. The charge will be £5 plus the cost of the tube.


Wheel Building – £
 25.00

We pride ourselves on building the very highest quality handbuilt wheels using the very best hubs, spokes and rims. We can build any kind of wheel, to any pattern with your choice of components.

We charge from £25 per wheel for re - building wheels plus the cost of parts.


Trueing Wheels - £
 15.00

Spokes break, crashes happen, spokes just get loose over time and wheels go out of true.

Let us give your wheels a tune up and we'll get them back running round and true.

If the crash has been too bad and no amount of skill will get your wheel back in shape or the nipples are corroded and adjustment is impossible it might be better to 'brave up' and let go. In these cases we will advise as to the best course of action.

We charge from £15 per wheel for re - plus the cost of parts.
