Repairs and Servicing

All Mechanics in Our Workshop Team are Weldtech or Cytech Qualified

 

When you entrust your bike to Walkers Cycling for servicing or repair you can rest safe in the knowledge that our workshop staff are all fully qualified and are accredited to Cytech and/or Weldtech standards. Regrettably, the same can’t be said of all bike shops and that’s something to bear in mind when shopping around for bike servicing or repairs.

Repairs and Servicing
We want to keep you cycling!
We’ll mend a puncture, adjust your brakes or replace the entire transmission system. No job is too small or too large.Thinking about getting back into cycling? Has your bike been gathering dust in the shed or garage for years? Let our skilled, Weldtech accredited mechanics give it a comprehensive service before you venture back out.Booking
Advance booking on service and repair work is advisable. Our workshop can be very busy, especially during the spring and summer months. Owing to lack of space, we may not be able to take bikes in for servicing without prior booking.Collection and delivery by arrangement for an additional charge – contact us for details.

Please contact us to arrange a booking or use our Repairs & Servicing Booking Form.

Estimates
Before any work is carried out the customer will be given an estimate of the cost of the work required. We will always advise the customer if, in our estimation, the bicycle or component is not economically repairable.

We can also carry out insurance estimates for accident damaged bikes. There is a £15.00 charge for this service. If we are subsequently authorised to carry out the repair/s required, the £15.00 estimate charge will be deducted from the cost of the repair.
