Often, your bike might not need a service, just some specific repairs or adjustments – say, new pedals and a front brake adjustment – and we’re happy to do small jobs – you don’t need to pay for a general service if your bike doesn’t need one. It might sound obvious, but sometimes shops don’t make it very clear!
If you use your bike most days, it’s a good idea to have a service once in a while, to help catch worn and improperly adjusted parts before they do any expensive damage.
An Advanced Service once a year and a Damn Good service every couple of years is about right for most people – if you ride a lot (maybe to Bath and back every day) then you might want to have a General Service every 6 months or so to keep on top of it – those miles add up!
Tyre pumpin’ and chain oilin’ is, and ever will be, free of charge.
