Repairs

Repairs and maintenance are at the heart of our business. The majority of our workers are qualified mechanics -- not only the greasy ones! We work on problems many other shops won't. Our workshop is fully equipped to take on all kinds of repairs, maintenance, wheel builds, and custom builds.

 

As a rough guide, we recommend you treat your bicycle to at least two services a year. If you use it a lot, for example commuting every day, you may want to have it serviced more often. If you do a fair bit of routine maintenance yourself, you can get away with less.

On the spot repairs

For smaller, emergency repairs, we have a "walk-in surgery" during the first 2 hours each day we're open. Bring us your bike then, and we will endeavour to fix it while you wait! We work on a first-come, first-served basis, so we recommend arriving early. This slot can get very busy, especially on Saturdays.

 

On-The-Spot morning repairs
Monday – Friday - 8am - 10am,
Saturday - 9am-10am


We may not be able to accept walk-in repairs later in the day, when we're busy with our booked-in services, so please call ahead before coming in if you miss the morning window of opportunity. Prices charged per job.

 


Full services and booked-in repairs

A service is a full going-over of your bike.  An appointment is necessary for services, wheelbuilds, and large repairs. Here's a detailed explanation of the service options we offer.

 

You'll need to leave your bike with us for a day, so you'll need to make an appointment. We're often booked up a week in advance, please phone us on 020 7733 6055 for the next free slot and please make sure to drop off your bike before 10am.

Tune Up

£35

This is recommended if your bike has been in storage, if you don't use it very often, or if it's in good running order and you want to be keep it that way. We check gears, brakes, wheels, bottom bracket, headset and all the little bolts, but we don't install any new parts.

Standard

£75 + parts

This is the most popular choice.

We check and adjust everything that moves, replacing components as necessary. The labour charge is £75, but you will almost certainly need extra parts – brake blocks, cables, tubes, tyres, etc. Pop into the shop with your bike anytime, we can give you an estimate of how much you need to spend, and book you in at the same time.

We offer Standard service for single speed bikes for £65

Senior

£130 + parts

This the full works. We take your bike apart, clean and polish it down to the last bearing, and lovingly reassemble it. This option is the best value if you want to keep your bike in tip top condition.
