Bike Service

Bike Service

I offer three levels of bike service and can of course just attend to the work that you want done, like fitting accessories or making upgrades. Choose the best service for yourself from the list below. Prices include labour, consumables and parts where stated. Additional parts will be charged as required.

Additional work

To get the best from your bike you need a regular bike service and an accurate bike fitting.

Family Cycling

Even though there are just as many parts on a children’s bike and they get hard use, I am happy to discuss offering a group arrangement to look after all of your bikes and help with adjustments as young bodies grow.
