Bicycle Repairs and Servicing
There is a dire shortage of bicycle parts in the UK which may affect the work that can be done.
The list below details some working practises and prices.
Sales: I do not do sales other than the parts required for servicing and repairs.
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 non standard repair parts without the back up shop staff can be time consuming so can take a while. There is a global shortage of bike parts.
Bikes need to be reasonably clean. This includes the drive chain. Derailleurs thick with tar like dirt add time to your job. Always wipe your chain down after applying lubricant.
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.
Wear a mask and follow the 2 metre social distancing rule.
Bikes will be sprayed with disinfectant.
