Our expert mechanic can assess and repair your bike for you, from changing a puncture to a complete rebuild. We offer three levels of bike service, or if you would prefer a bespoke service or repair just drop by and we would be happy to provide you with some advice and a quote. All our mechanic’s work comes with a three month warranty.
Try our Hub Tiger booking service. Most of our popular services and workshop tasks are on there and it will give you a booking in our busy diary. Usually our week runs from Thursday to Monday (5 days) with drop-off ideally on the Thursday or Friday between 10-12 or 4-6pm, we get started on our weeks tasks right away, but expect a regular turnaround of 5 days for your bike. Sometimes we will be faster than this, sometimes we will be longer than this, but generally so long as we have any parts required in stock and the job isn’t considerably bigger than what it was booked in for, the 5 days is OK.
It does not matter which ‘time slot’ you book the bike into during our working week of Thur to Mon, any that will allow you to book is OK, but then please note the above preferred drop off times of 10-12 pm and 4-6 pm Thur and Fri. This gives us the best chance to see the amount of work booked in, order up any parts required before the weekend so that we stand a chance of turning it around in a reasonable time frame.
If you need a bike to be done for a very specific time, please inform us in the booking form and tell us when you drop it off, we will where possible do this, however at peak times (Feb to Nov) we will always try and be as quick as we can, parts, staffing, diary allowing!
