Expert bicycle service and repairs, East of England, Essex and Suffolk.

The extra mile.

We have extensive experience and capabilities for bicycle service and repairs. And many of our customers have brought their beloved bicycles to us for repairs when they have had little success elsewhere.
And you can count on us to go the extra mile to resolve and repair any breakdown your bike presents.

Flexible bicycle service plans

We offer three types of services each designed to make sure you only pay for what the bike needs.

  1. Stage 1 Basic Service is perfect for low mileage usage or pre-event check over.
  2. Stage 2 Intermediate Service is for a bike that requires a bit more attention.
  3. Stage 3 Full Service will strip the bike back to its bare bones, essential for high mileage bikes or that bike that have not been used for a long time.

We also offer a crash assessment report for insurance claims.
