Maintenance...

Do you own a bike in need of repair or a service?

Buying a new bicycle is a little extreme if you could have your bike serviced or repaired by experienced professionals.
Our team can affordably repair all kinds of bicycles.
We have a fully equipped workshop with a number of highly experienced technicians with a vast knowledge of most cycles.
We offer three levels of service which offer great value for money based on your usage and needs as a cyclist.
As well as carrying out general repairs and servicing we also carry out restoration work on classic and vintage cycles.
If you have any queries or would like a FREE 1 hour maintenance assessment contact us today.
