FULLY QUALIFIED WORKSHOP

All of our workshop staff are fully qualified bike mechanics and we always give the same care and attention to your bikes that we do with our own. We love bikes and strive to keep them all safe and efficient.

THE WORKSHOP – FOR SIMPLE SERVICE OPTIONS

in the workshop, we can undertake any work that is required on your bike but for simplicity, we offer three basic service packages. If you’d like to discuss any other work you need completing, please get in touch so we can discuss the options with you.

Please note any parts required for the above services are on top of the labour charge.  Please ensure all bikes are delivered to us in a clean condition prior to servicing otherwise a cleaning fee will be applied.

EXPERTS FROM FORK TO FREEHUB

Custom Builds

With our passion and knowledge of all aspects of cycling, we can not only help with the specifications of your dream bike but can also undertake any custom build project you have in mind.

Let us help make your dreams come true.

Reverb Repairs - the workshop

Reverb Servicing

Instead of the lengthy process of sending your Reverb dropper post off island we are fully qualified to strip down, service and rebuild to having the working like new again. Labour cost is £45 plus parts on top.

Custom Wheel Building - the workshop

Wheel Building

We offer a wide range of wheel service options, starting with bearing adjustments at just £6 per wheel. We also offer wheel building, tubeless tyre fitting, hub servicing and more.

Fork and Shock Servicing - the workshop

Fork and Shock Servicing

Again, like the Reverbs, we can service Rockshox and Fox forks in house, either a lower service or full strip down. We highly recommend forks to be serviced once a year so as they remain in good working order and stop the upper stanchion surface degrading due to grit build up in the seals. Labour costs start from £30 per shock/fork plus parts on top.
