Service Plans and Repairs

Regular servicing of your bike will prolong it’s life, give you peace of mind and enhance your enjoyment of cycling. Depending on frequency of use and how hard you are on your bike, a six-monthly or yearly service is recommended.

From a simple repair to a full strip and re-build service, I can provide it. I will always inspect your bike before carrying out any work so you know the cost of any replacements or repairs up-front. Because of low overheads, prices are competitive and the convenience factor makes it even more attractive.

Price Guide

The price menu here should be used as a guide only because I need to see your bike before giving a quote.

Prices are for labour only and do not include components unless indicated. I will always ask before fitting new components. Prices will vary according to bike type and components required.

There is a minimum charge of £20 for work, but no mileage fee for collection and delivery.

Bronze Service can usually be carried out on site. Silver and Gold Service will be carried out on a collect and return basis at the Cheshire BikeFix workshop.
