Servicing

Servicing

We do bike servicing. We are well equipped to service most bikes. We carry spares for mountain bikes, hybrids and old ladies/gents bikes.

We generally don’t do full services on high end mountain bikes or road bikes as we don’t stock all the parts, but we can do a small service or adjustment on them, or we can order in parts for you, or you can supply the parts.

Our prices are generally cheaper than regular bike shops, because we don’t have the same overheads. We do, however, take care and make sure that everything is done properly, as we are not under the same time pressures. Depending on our workload, it may be ready the same day, but it might take a couple of days. We can loan you a bike while yours is being repaired.

Our parts and accessories are competitive in price too, but we don’t carry the same range as local bike shops. We can order things in for you, and they generally arrive within a day or two.
Pricing (not including parts):
Puncture repair (incl new tube): $15
