About Our Workshop
If the Shop floor is the face of our store the heart is most definitely the workshop. We repair and build hundreds of bikes every year including the Thames Valley Police fleet of bikes. However, every bike is special to us. Whether it is just a puncture repair or a full restoration you need we will take 100% pride and care fixing it for you.
We don’t rush any repairs but aim and frequently manage to sort them out for the same or next day collection, often within an hour or even on the spot for tubes and more basic repairs.
We offer a free bicycle check for all customers. Every bike is checked (normally within 2-4 minutes) to diagnose and quote for repair and no work is carried out without your consent so you will never be unpleasantly surprised :-)
Routine servicing and adjustments will keep your bike running smoothly and will invariably save you money in the long run. Below are some examples of our service costs and what they involve.

Tyres need inflating?
Correctly inflated tyres will make you cycle faster, easier and more manoeuvrable. It will also leave you a lot less prone to punctures and prevent unnecessary tyre damage.
This is why we offer the use of a track pump in the shop. We kindly ask for a donation towards the pump maintenace/replacement.
Got A Puncture?
Stuck with a flat tyre and don’t know how to fix it. Leave it to us we thoroughly check all tyres and rim for wear and any foreign objects then simply replace the inner tube with a new one. We aim to do this within the hour whenever possible and we always endeavour to do wheelchairs and buggies on the spot.
Prices start from: £13.00 (including the tube)
Got A Buckled Wheel?
Are your wheels not running straight? Pop it in and 9 times out of 10 we can straighten them for you. This will mean your brakes will run smoothly and can save you money and sweat.
