Get Your Bike Fixed’ – Services and Repairs

Cycle repairs and bike builds on the Isle of Wight by expert racing cyclist and mechanic/coach Sean Williams. I have an expert knowledge from 25 years of racing and riding on and off the Isle of Wight. Since 1992, including a decade working within the trade as a bike mechanic in the 90’s, I have not stopped playing with bikes. I ride and train just as much as I did all those years ago.

I worked in the industry for nearly ten years for Offshore Sports as a cycle mechanic and sponsored Bike racer. I still race and am starting out as a cycling professional (as opposed to a professional cyclist … missed that boat!

 

Bike Repairs on the Isle of Wight

For 2021 I am now offering a Islandwide collection and delivery service (on completed bike repairs).

Cowes and Northwood – Free collection delivery on any repair*

Islandwide – Free collection and delivery but minimum cost is £50 – suitable for bikes needing a service**


Please call to arrange a collection. Please note collection won’t necessarily be on the day you call but I will endeavour to organise a collection within two days.

**Islandwide. I will only be collecting and delivering bicycles that require a mimimum of £50 (labour). This generally covers a basic service/checkover with a clean up and transmission degrease service. I will always advise of further work required.  up and delivery is free and is part of this service. I can take more than one cycle if the total estimated repairs is likely to exceed the £50 minimum.

I work alone so I need to cover my time for collections outside of Cowes.

*Cowes and Northwood customers will benefit from free collections and delivery for any level of repair.

Either way, for services, I’ll need to keep your bike for up to 5 days (weekdays) but will endeavour to finish the work asap. A delay will almost always be because I am waiting for parts (during covid this is a real issue, but has generally been ok in most cases)

I also offer a Traditional Bike fit service. No computers and no lasers, just good old fashioned advice. A good introductory fit to give you an idea of what you might expect from a more scientific Bike Fit at a fraction of the price.
