Service and Repair

Maintaining your bike is about more than just pride. Keeping on top of your mechanical work means that your components will last longer and run smoother, and you’re less likely to be caught out when things do go wrong. Of course, as you pile on the miles, components will wear out. When that happens, our mechanics are equipped with a full workshop, with everything they need to get you back into the action.

 

  • Fixed price labour charges
  • Extensive parts supply services
  • Advice on maintenance between services
  • All work guaranteed for a minimum of 6 months
  • Guaranteed turnaround within 48 hours
