Show your bike some TLC with our full range of service options

Bikes are machines. Awesome machines. And they deserve proper care and attention. Regular servicing will help to keep them operating smoothly and reduce wear and tear. This can save you money in the long run and avoid big repair bills from prematurely worn out components.

How often should I have my bike serviced?

"How often you should service a bike depends entirely on how often you ride. For someone that only rides a couple of times a week in the summer months, a General Service twice annually should be sufficient. If you ride all year round, in all types of conditions, then servicing four times a year will help maintain the bike in tip-top condition”
