Servicing and checks

BIKE CHECK/REPORT

I will carry out a 20 point bike check and generate a report and estimate. If you return the bike to me within 2 weeks of the check for the service I'll take off the £10 check charge from the total.

    CABLING - Gear and Brake

    Internal Cabling

    It takes a lot longer to thread internally routed cable as opposed to a traditionally fitted type. Therefore the cost is higher. Starts at £20 per cable + cost of cables. I'll normally do two in that cost too if required. This applies to both Brake and Gear cabling so if you need all cables changed it'll be £40 + cost of cables

    External Cabling

    Starts at £10 per cable + cost of cables. I'll normally do two in that cost too if required. This applies to both Brake and Gear cabling so if you need all cables changed it'll be £20 + cost of cables

    £20-£40 + cost of cabling
