SERVICING AND REPAIRS

Covid-19 Coronavirus

We are still OPEN and fixing bikes, but due to reduced working hours, fewer staff in the workshop, and suppliers' delays, repairs may take a week or more to complete. If you use your bicycle for transport to work we will prioritise it, so let us know.  And if you can't drop it off during our opening hours, get in touch on info@bicyclelinks.org.uk and we can make other arrangements.

    We have parking, so if you are bringing a cycle in by car, just drive straight in. Staff are happy to help unload.

    We do not carry out repairs on Saturdays.

    Bikes can be left for up to four days after the agreed deadline date. After that we may charge a storage fee of £10 per week or part thereof. Bicycles that are in for repair will not be cleaned unless requested at an additional charge.

    We are happy to work on old / retro / classic bikes and have experience with Sturmey Archer gears, hub brakes, rod brakes, older wheel sizes and imperial fittings – we may have to charge a per-hour labour fee for anything vintage or unusual, rather than a quoted price, as it is sometimes not possible to tell in advance how long a job will take.
