    Velo Bikes Workshop

    We have a well equipped workshop at both our shops which can tackle everything from a puncture, gears not shifting smoothly or a full strip-back-to-frame and rebuild.

    Our capable mechanics will repair, replace and adjust your pride and joy so that you can keep chasing those miles or meters of descent. They are also qualified to service mountain bike forks, dropper seat posts as well as set up your Di2 to optimise your riding enjoyment.

    Our preference would be for you to book your into the workshop in advance so we can manage the workload but we understand that whilst riding things happen, so we're also happy to see you for a 'can you just..!'

    What we'd ask is that all bikes are presented to the workshop are clean and ready to work on.

    Once all work is completed we'll text you to let you know that your bike is ready.

    The menu below gives outline pricing of the servicing we can offer. If you don't see what you need please phone and we'll have a chat about it.
