With all service and repairs, I’m happy to discuss bespoke requirements for your bike, just call on 07500 505175 to discuss the options. If parts are required, I will always contact you with a price before going ahead.

I apply the same thorough 4-step process to every bike; 1) a full handwash, 2) an assessment, written report and phone consultation, 3) service, adjustment and fitting of new parts, and 4) sign off with a safety check and test ride. Using an MOT-style process, I check the wear and synchronisation of your brakes; measure drivetrain and chain wear, and tune gears as required; check the tires are in a safe condition and correctly fitted; check the wheels are true; check all main bearings have free rotation with no play; and ensure correct torque settings to all fixings. If any parts are required, I will discuss this with you during the phone consultation, and before proceeding with any work.
Every service also includes a clean too! A clean bike is faster, lasts longer, looks pro, and is easier to work on. I’ll give it a hot wash using a gentle degreaser, and a polish with a microfibre mitt (note; heavily contaminated bikes may incur a further cleaning charge)
Bike repairs are generally required where you have a specific problem that you want me to look at (outside of a standard service). Repairs can be anything from changing an inner tube, to a gear tune, wheel truing, or realignment of the derailleur hanger.
Upgrades are always a pleasure, and I am happy to offer a range of lightweight handbuilt wheels, as well as being able to offer advice on how to make your bike faster with better kit, and to then fit it for you.
The work is done to the highest standard whilst never costing you a minute longer than needed; I simply charge these jobs at my standard hrly rate.
The standard service can be turned into a full strip; a spa day for your bike. I completely strip the bike including the headset, bottom bracket and hubs; everything is cleaned, degreased, and then reassembled; anti-seize, thread lockers and lubricants are applied throughout. I then finish with two coats of professional finishing product, and a microfibre polish. Get in touch if you want to discuss this further.
