Whether you need a mid-ride rescue or a full overhaul, our team of experienced mechanics is on hand to keep your bike running smoothly. Our high-quality service is focused on professionalism and efficiency to get you back rolling as quickly as possible. We offer different levels of service depending on the work required:

On-the-Spot Servicing

Brakes failed on Spooky Wood? Chain snapped on Redemption Climb? Puncture on Berm Baby Berm? We handle a wide range of quick repair jobs on a first-come-first-served basis; we’ll take your bike, assess the problem and find a solution while you get a coffee or a sandwich from the cafe.

Bronze Service

The Bronze Service is like a checkup. We make sure everything is running properly and tune it up if necessary, inspect for damage, and point out anything that could cause an issue when riding. Depending on how much you use your bike, a service like this would be suitable every 3 - 6 months. If your bike has been in storage for a long time, or has been ridden a lot, you should consider a Silver or Gold service. A Bronze Service includes:

  • Full safety check
  • Frame inspected for damage and wear
  • Fork aligned & secured
  • Gears adjusted for smooth operation
  • Brakes adjusted for optimal operation
  • Chain checked for wear & lubricated
  • Drivetrain inspection for wear & damage
  • Wheel & tyre inspection

Our Silver Service is our most popular service package. Here, you get everything in the Bronze package, plus a full Brake & Gear service. We will inspect, tune and replace parts (if necessary) in this service so your bike is in perfect working order.
