Covent Garden Store

We're proud to announce that our Specialized Concept store in Covent Garden has been transformed into a fully-fledged Cycle Surgery store!

You can still expect friendly customer service, knowledge and expertise on Specialized, as well as your favourite Specialized bikes, technical clothing and accessories. It's just the name on the door that has changed.

The Covent Garden store will also continue to operate a fully equipped workshop backed by an experienced team of Cytech Qualified mechanics. So whether it’s a puncture repair, a wobbly wheel or a tune-up for your bike – we offer servicing at all levels, whatever the bike, whatever the budget. Please see the full price list at the bottom of this page but feel free to ring us if you have any questions.

You can also take advantage of our expert Body Geometry Fit service in the Covent Garden store. Find out more about Body Geometry Bike Fit here.

Workshop Services

cytech logo

Our workshop staff operate at a high skill level; as well as building all of our instore bikes,we can fix your puncture, service your winter commute bike, get your race machine ready for the season, or build you a very nice personal specification Custom Build. We work closely with Specialized UK to offer a quick turnaround on servicing Roval wheels, RockShocks and Brains, and can organise most other specialist services and repairs for road and off-road equipment. We run Di2 diagnostics, stock Garmin Vector power meter pedals and other race & Tri specific power meters, and can order most replacement parts. If you need any kind of repair a quick chat with our staff will help you choose the best option, and our professional advice will help you get the best result and keep the costs down.

In order to give you a transparent overview of pricing for all activities carried out in our workshops, we have listed approximate costs below. All prices serve only as a guideline and can vary depending on the age, condition and type of bike. There is a minimum labour charge of £10. We will always happily give you an approximate quote for any jobs not listed below. All parts are charged separately.

Please note: There will be an additional labour charge for fitting new parts and accessories, e.g. Brake blocks, cables, chain etc.
