About Us


Who we are

We are Dan and Timo, both level 2 qualified mechanics, both mechanics who love tinkering with and riding bikes,

Timo is the organised one (he's German) and Dan loves overcomplicating anything vaguely technical (he's not German).

What we really enjoy doing is helping cyclists engage more with their bikes.

Whether it's just making you love your bike after a service, taking an interest in how it works, or even doing the work yourself, we can help you with that.


The workshop

We specialise in service and repair and the only bikes we sell are the premium brand 'Squish' children's bikes.

Our workshop is set out to be customer facing so you can come in and join in if you want to.

You'll find us by looking for our logo on a banner inside a gloomy looking roller door in Southville where we'll be beavering away in the back room.

Please do feel free to wander in. It might not look inviting from the outside, but we are quite friendly!


What our customers say...

""Thank you very much for your excellent service"

"These guys are great, very friendly and top service.  Use them all the time for jobs beyond my skills"

"Great expertise and clear explanations of what work was required"

"Everything good.  Definitely recommend you boys!"

"A great comprehensive service carried out on my aging MTB by the Bristol Bikesmiths team. Would definitely recommend" 

"That Timo is a magnificent beast"
