Our standard hourly labour charge is £40 per hour.
Our minimum labour charge is £10.
All prices listed below do not include parts.
We can source pretty much all bike parts, so whether you need new inner tubes or new forks, we can usually help.
Details of what is included in each service is outlined below and will be carried out if they are required.
We would advise that the following are done / checked roughly every 100 miles:
For high end / full suspension MTBs, please see our specific MTB price list.
The services outlined below are guidelines. If you just require targeted servicing of certain aspects of your bike see the section below.
Puncture repair appointments are 15 minutes long. Price includes a tube unless you want something weird. If you have hub gears (except nexus, alfine) hub motor or anything else that makes tube replacement fussy you will need to book a thirtyminuter appointment.
This is ideal for a quick repair, gear tune, brake repair, single brake bleed, wheel repair, a dust off and safety check or just a quick and dirty tune of the whole bike
This can be kind of similar to the Thirtyminuter or a safety check, tune and small parts fit. Basically whatever is the best way to spend an hour on your bike.
Ideal for an interim service, winter prep, dust off, quick tune and repair, 2 repairs (e.g. gears and brakes, wheel repair and hub service), drivetrain clean and tune
You may have spotted the pattern here. A 90 minute session with one of our velomancers.
Useful if you think it needs a light service and parts replacement. For example, if it needs a tune and you have had value from your drivetrain so it needs replacing, or your bb, wheel bearings, or headset need replacement.
Guess how long this one is... That's right, 2 hours!
Particularly suitable for commuters this is a head down charge into as much as we an do to your bike in 2 hours. We can often service bearings, recable, refit drivetrain and a few other bits and pieces in this time. It may or may not be cleaned, either if you wash for it, time allows or your bike is just disgusting to handle while servicing.
Strip it, clean it, rebuild it.
The difference in costs is the length of time taken either because it's a fussy bike, or the level of detail required. 2.5 to 3 hours.
Popular with commuters and upto mid priced road bikes.
Same as our Standard Full Service, but the difference is the level of detail and care that needs to be taken and how much the bike designer hates mechanics.
Always worth doing at least every 2 years.
Ideal for: All Roadies who love their bike
Because there are a lot of different aspects of modern mountain bike maintenance and riders tend to send their bikes or components in for specific work we don't have a service package for these. For things like droppers, suspension, bearings, hydraulics etc speak to Dan. It's his thing.
This is basically a check and tune of your bike and any work that needs to be done on top based on a conversation with you about the cost of the bike, how it's being used and the result needed. Remember it is ultimately the bike that decides what is needed and what parts are requires so you will need to trust us to make decisions about it. This can be the most cost effctive way of lighjt servicing/tuning, but if you are price sensitive a timed appointment in your presence is the best option.

We clean your bikes for you! With the exception of the top level, the prices do not include any servicing other than a quick tuneup and safety check on reassembly.
Quick wash if you just want the worst off. Sometimes this won't cut it if the bike is really greasy. We will tell you if this is the case.
This is particularly suitable if you've taken your bike out in the rain or mud.
Basically a general clean of your bike to include a basic clean and a drivetrain clean. Your bike will be shiny!
Want to do your own work on your bike?
If you know what you are doing but just want a better environment than your back garden or garage, or need access to tools you don't have, you can just come in and do it yourself. This option does allow for some assistance from a mechanic (upto 10 mins free). If you get really stuck, out time works out at £5 per 10 mins on top so you can have targeted tutorials on the bits you are unsure of.
This is a popular option. If you need to service your bike, and would pay for it anyway, why not learn to work on your bike at the same time. Some people just like to have a coffee and watch while we talk them through the service as we demonstrate it. Some like to do it all themselves with guidance. Some like to go somewhere in between to practice the more accessible bits and learn what the insides of their bike looks like. Totally up to you.
If you have a group of friends who all want to have a workshop session, you can book all three benches, and you will have the full attention of a mechanic for structured lessons or general guidance. Why not arrange for a group of friends to come in and sort out their suspension, or hydraulic brakes for example
The above costs are a general guide, but if your bike is time consuming to work on these prices may vary. If you don't collect your bike from us in a timely manner it will not be covered by our insurance and we will charge storage or sell the bike to recover costs.
