Because shit happens.
Bikes like to be looked after. They need to be looked after. Treat them well and they’ll pay you back in spades. Or miles. Or years. Even comfort. Certainly speed.
The trick is to catch any problem before it happens. Just like with a car. There are a lot of moving parts on a bike, and a lot of bad weather and potholes in the UK. Parts wear and corrode, even where you can’t see. Especially where you can’t see. So keep your bike clean, lubed and serviced. And when shit does happen, and it will, get it worked on by someone who knows what they’re doing and has the proper tools to repair it. And who cares.
What can we tell you here? We have probably the largest and best equipped workshop in the area and our mechanics are all professionally qualified with years of experience in the industry and on teams. So the quality of our work is high and the waiting times low.
Every bike is fully inspected and a call made to the client to discuss the work and the cost before the job starts. So there are no surprises either.
We carry a wide range of common replacement parts and since we are not tied to any particular brand we can order in almost any part for next day. We like to replace parts like-for-like to ensure no changes to your riding experience unless you're looking for a specific change.
Where we can we use environmentally friendly lubricants and detergents because every little act counts, right?
Strip and rebuild service
It’s rather like the saying about the difference between giving someone who is hungry a fish or a fishing rod: one makes a single meal, the other is a constant source of meals.
It’s good for us if we service your bike. And it’s good for your bike if we fix it and keep it well. But what happens when you’re miles from home and something happens? Wouldn’t it be good all round if you were equipped with some roadside or post ride basic repair and maintenance skills? We offer a number of mechanical courses: it’s one of the reasons we have such a large workshop. You shouldn’t really leave home without having been on one!
