The Cycle Guy - Workshop

We offer three preventative maintenance services plus bespoke repair, replacement or upgrade options to cover specific components or systems


All work begins with a discussion to understand the specifics of your bike and any mechanical issues you have experienced.


Our services are optimised to ensure your bike is maintained to the standards set out by Cytech, the recognised international standard for cycle technicians. Regular servicing is strongly advised to ensure your bike continues to function correctly and to prevent premature failure of components.


All our service packages start with a 20 point inspection.

We can service / repair all bike types and brands - we endeavour to service and repair any bike type or brand. Replacement parts can be a challenge but we will always attempt to source an original component or offer a like for like alternative.

For e-bikes we can service mechanical parts only.

Some on-line only and factory direct brands such as YT and Canyon do not provide product support to independent bikes shops and may not honour warranties if we service or repair your bike. For this reason our service for online only /  factory direct bikes is currently limited to tune up services only.

Upgrades

The ever changing world of bicycle technology can at times seem bewildering. We are bombarded with advice from friends, club experts, youtube bodgers and numerous (mostly paid) on-line influencers - sometimes it can be difficult to separate hype from reality and believe us there is a lot of hype out there!


We pride ourselves on providing independent advice based on what we know works. We are professional cycle mechanics, we regularly attend training from major brands and we maintain our product knowledge to keep up with the latest technology.


If you are thinking about upgrading your bike please drop by the shop, we are happy to discuss your requirements and offer solutions we know work.
