Bicycle Repairs and Servicing
Covid-19. Just because we’ve all got used to it doesn’t mean it has gone away. Please respect the 2 metre distancing rule.
I am here to help you with your bikes.
The list below details some working practises and prices.
Conditions of service
Visit by appointment only.
Please confirm bookings by e-mail(click this link) It is too confusing tracing messages on Facebook, Instagram and all the other means of communcation. E-mail me with details of the bike and your telephone number. I’ll then mail back all the details.
Parts fitted will be priced at the RRP. I am happy to fit parts supplied. I would normally expect to be bringing the bike back to the condition it was when new so any worn parts will be replaced.
Sourcing parts no standard repair parts without the back up shop staff can be time consuming so may either not be prioritised and may charged for.
Many previously “next day” suppliers are taking up to 4 days to deliver parts due to Covid-19 so you may be asked to collect your bike untill the parts arrive.
Bikes need to be reasonably clean.
Bike with dog faeces will not be worked on.
Payments will be by BACS, account details will be on the invoice.
You will be asked before booking if you or any close contacts have had Covid-19
There is a bike rack for you to park your bike.
