Workshop

Our workshop offers a range of services to suit all your needs.

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.

Or why not have a go yourself? Our workshop offers a do-it-yourself bike repair service. An hourly rate gets you access to our workshop space, tools, expert advice and unlimited tea/coffee to help you fix your bike yourself. After using this service, our mechanics will always double check your bike for safety before you ride away!
