Ideal for a new bike or one that hasn’t been used for a while. This is a simple service, not replacing any new or consumable parts, but tightening cables or bolts and making any other adjustments for a smoother operating bike. We will also identify any repairs that need to be made to get you on the road.
Look after your bike! This service should be performed every 6 -12 months depending on how much you ride. If your bike is used regularly certain parts will wear out; the bike will most likely need new pads and chain fitted. Also, wheels may need truing and creaks may have started to appear. An essential for the daily commuter or rider at the end of season.
This service is for those that ride a lot or haven’t serviced their bike in a while. Ideally we would recommend a complete overhaul every year or two. The bike will most likely need the full cable set replacing, as well as pads and chain. Most moving parts will need to be serviced or replaced. This service suits a bike that has been neglected or over-worked.
