About bike servicing

It is important that you keep your bike well maintained, so that it
• ensures that your components last longer
• performs at its best
• is a pleasure to ride

Some maintenance can be carried out at home with a workstand and the right tools and there are maintenance 'podcasts' at the bottom of the page to help you, particularly to change an inner tube or tyre. All of our mechanics are trained to the highest standards with Cytech qualifications. We can open at 8am during the week to enable you to get your bike in before you go to work and close at 8pm to give you plenty of time to collect your bike after work.

3 Services in Year 1 - Free of charge

During the first few weeks of riding, parts of the bike may work their way loose or move out of alignment. This can lead to reduced performance and possible undue wear, hence there is free service during the early weeks. This service is actaully a free basic service. In fact, there are 3 free services in the first year which give us the opportunity to guarantee the smooth running of your bike and cover any warranty issues should they arise.

Types of Service

There are two types of service, basic and advanced service. The basic service is a general check-over and, depending on use, is carried out as and when you feel performance has degraded. The enhanced service is a complete overhaul and involves stripping your bike down to the frame and its components - see below.

Suspension Servicing

Suspension servicing should be carried out regularly depending on use

Other Servicing

Finally other servicing ranges from wheel building to puncture repair fitting a cycle accessory
