The safety check is simply that, a safety check of your entire bike. It's a good place to start for; a bike which has been in storage, a used bike you've just bought or a kids bike ahead of their cycling proficiency test at school.
Think of it like an MOT on your car, it'll check the key areas of your bike for correct and proper function but won't put right any functions of your bike which are not working properly. For that you'll need either a Stage 1 or Stage 2 service, or you can tackle the problem area as an individual job.
Your mechanic can advise you on the most cost effective course of action to take if the safety check uncovers any problems with your bike.
Stage 1 service
A Stage 1 service is recommended every 6 - 12 months depending on how often your bike sees action. It goes further than the Safety Check by making any required adjustments to your brakes and gears as well as wheel truing, adjusting your hubs, bottom bracket and headset (if applicable) and ensuring all fasteners on your bike are secure and correctly torqued.
If your bike requires a brake bleed or any of its bearings replaced, these can either be added as additional jobs, or the service increased to a Stage 2.
Again, your mechanic can advise you on the best service to meet the unique needs of your bike.
Stage 2 service
The Stage 2 service builds on the Stage 1 service and is recommend every 18 to 24 months or if you've owned your bike for a few years and it's never seen a mechanic.
This service takes your pride and joy back to a frame and fork. Each component is removed, cleaned and inspected before being reassembled or replaced.
If any component is worn or damaged, then there is no additional labour to replace the component if it is purchased from us during your service.
If your bike has hydraulic disc brakes, the cost of the service is £159.
Suspension components can be serviced in addition to the Stage 2 service cost.
How it works
Whether we collect your bike or you choose to drop it off, once you hand over your bike, it will be assessed to determine which service is best and whether any parts might also be required. You'll get a phone call from the mechanic to confirm the estimated repair cost with you before any service work is undertaken and when we expect to have completed the work by. We will not progress with any work until we have spoken to you first, so it's important you provide accurate contact details at collection or drop-off to avoid delays in communication. Any components replaced during the service will be disposed of unless you have requested otherwise. Bikes presented for service which require cleaning will incur an additional charge of £15 per bike.
Once your mechanic has been in touch to let you know your bike is complete, it must be collected within a week unless you've chosen to have it redelivered. Payment is taken in full upon completion of the work, less any deposits which you paid in advance for special order items. We reserve the right to dispose of bikes which are not collected within a reasonable time.
You can find out more, including what happens if you decide not to proceed with a repair, by visiting our terms and conditions found here.
As well as the three services above, we can tackle almost any other service or repair your bike may need. Take a look through the list below for the additional workshop tasks we can provide for you, and don't worry if you can't see what you're after in the list below, our workshop operates on a £40 per hour structure with a minimum charge of £10.
