Puncture Repair - £20
*Price incudes the cost of new inner tube*
We also fully inspect the tyre and rim tape for damage and remove any embedded debris to reduce the chance of future punctures.
If your tyre is damaged and needs to be replaced, any tyres purchased in store will be fitted at no extra cost during the puncture repair.
Hub Service - £15
Prices starting from £15. for a front
to around £35 for Sturmey Archer 3 speed hubs, parts dependant.
We are happy to work on most hubs including internal hub gears and Dutch bikes.
Wheel True - £20
Prices from £20, cost of spokes (if required) not included.
Nothing's more annoying than a wheel that isn't straight. If your wheel is wobbling as your cycle or knocking against your pads or frame, it probably needs to be trued!
Bear in mind, not all wheels can be trued. If the warping is too extensive, it may not be possible. Drop by the shop and we can have a look at the best way to resolve it for you.
Single Brake - £20
Both Brakes - £35
Working brakes that you can rely on are a must on any bicycle. Over time, inner and outer cables wear, plus, the pads wear down.
Once the pads are worn beyond use, your braking efficiency is significantly reduced and the pads can damage your rims/rotors, resulting in a higher repair bill if left!
*Price does not include parts
Single Gears - £20
Both Gears - £35
If you've noticed your gears are making funny noises or aren't shifting quickly enough, this is the service for you. We are able to work on all gear types including internal hub gears.
*Price does not include parts
