A good workshop is the heart of a good bike shop and we are extremely proud of ours. Every job is done the right way with the right tools. We are constantly updating our knowledge, tools and procedures to make sure we have everything our technicians need to keep your bike in tip top shape. With tools from Park USA and other leading manufacturers our Cytech accredited cycle technicians have everything they need to tackle any task in building, repairing and maintaining your bike.
We carry a large stock of genuine spare parts, service and support items from key cycle component and drivetrain manufacturers such as Shimano and SRAM and our workshop is fully equipped to carry out any warranty check, backup or support for all the brands and products we sell.
We try our best to offer a speedy turn-around but as with any workshop, we are busy at times and demand can be difficult to anticipate so please call in or phone for a quote on time and cost of your job.
All jobs are billed for parts, and labour time and the technical difficulty the job involves. Because we never know what we will discover when we start work on your bike we don’t offer set price servicing but as a guide below you will find a menu of common workshop jobs and their approximate costs.
We offer 3 levels of bike service; Base, Ridge and Summit. Outlined below is a guide to what is included in each service package.
These bike service packages are inclusive of labour and general lubricants only and do not include any required parts, specialist lubricants or external services (like external shock and fork servicing). Any items such as these will be in addition to the cost of the planned service level.
For bikes with hydraulic disc brakes an additional fee is charged for bleeding/servicing, setup or inspection (see below).
