Prices & Maintenance Options
Service options and prices
If I find your service cost between the fixed price levels, not quite silver but more than bronze, or not needing the strip down and rebuild of a gold but requiring more care and attention than the silver was charging for: I do not price up to the next level, I charge what is fair and I know I am still the best value in Fife and way more value than city prices! All my service prices are outstanding value.
I will make sure that your bike is safe and functioning correctly, and record and tell you of problems and any other work required.
This is the service to have once a year if your bicycle is not used on a regular basis. Your child's bike needsto be at this standard for your confidence and peace of mind.
£33, excluding parts. Check and adjust gears, brakes and tyres, align steering, chain cleaned and lubricated, all bolts tightened.
I make sure that in addition to Bronze, the main bearings in the hubs and bottom bracket (where the wheels and pedals turn) are all functioning. I also check and true the wheels to remove slight wobbles.
This is the service if your bicycle is used fairly regularly and you want worry free cycling, and is my most popular service.
£50, excluding parts. As Bronze plus clean and check hubs, bottom bracket and pedals, true wheels.
In addition to the Silver service I totally clean the drive train and clean and regrease all the major bearings. Your bike is taken to pieces and rebuilt with worn and broken parts being replaced as required.
This service is best for bicycles that are used many miles per year: commuters, tourists, racers; or a bike that has been unused for a while or a "new to you" bicycle.
£85, excluding parts. As Silver plus clean and drive train, regrease, hubs, headset, bottom bracket, seat post, road test.
labour £35 per wheel to include schwalbe inner tube rim tape, tubeless tape add £7
Fixed price standalone jobs with parts supplied
Some example prices (few folks want standalone pricing, its always way better value to get new parts as an element of a silver of gold service):
Puncture - supply and fit new inner tube - £25
Tyre replacement - from £15
Hydraulic disc brake service 1 - front and rear cleaned, fluid renewed and bled - from £22
Hydraulic disc brake service 2 - as 1 plus pads replaced and calliper serviced - from £42
Brake calliper mounts facing to ensure square contact with pads and rotor - £5. I thoroughly recommend this is done as part of a brake overhaul, in which case Free.
Non-hydraulic brake service 1 - front and rear cleaned, pads and inner cable replaced - £30
Non-hydraulic brake service 2 - as 1 plus outer cable replaced - £32
Bottom bracket replaced - £30
the list goes on and on...phone, txt, email, we can discuss, I provide a personal and personable service to all. Typically combining a job you know needs doing with a service, works out as the best value for you as the labour is likely included in the service charge, if not an additional labour charge is added on.
