The small print…

We are cyclists ourselves, we know that no-one plans to have a mechanical failure and wants their bike fixing straight away so we aim to keep the vast majority of service parts in store. However, whenever possible we strongly advise booking your bike into our workshop in advance to ensure it’s ready before a holiday or race. Workspace is limited so if you’re unable to collect your bike on the agreed collection date, or within 2 days, then we will have to charge a late collection fee of £5 per day.

All prices are dependent on condition of the cycle and the components – neglected bikes may take more time to fix as nuts and bolts may be rounded and/or rusted together and unfortunately cost more. For a more accurate quote please come see us with your bike in store.

Dirty bikes will be subject to the Bike Valet cleaning charge of £10. Bikes can roll through some horrible stuff and we’ve just got new carpets so depending on their state and how busy we are, we reserve the right to refuse a filthy bike.
