At Freewheelers Bicycle Workshop we offer bike repairs and services.           

If you are experiencing problems with your bicycle you can bring it to the workshop - we offer free safety checks.

All the repairs at Freewheelers are carried out by Cytech 2 qualified mechanics.

 

How it works

Bring your bicycle to the workshop, we will check it for you, give you an estimate and if you're happy to go ahead,  we'll give you a date when the bicycle will be ready.


At busy times we may not be able to get on with the repair or service straight away, but we'll give you a date when you can bring the bike in (if you want to take it away to keep cycling) and a collection time and date. You can also ring us before bringing your bicycle in and we can give you an indication of how busy we are, so that you can bring your bike in just in time for us to start the repair.

Prices

We will give you an estimate (as accurate as possible) of how much the repairs and new parts (if needed) would cost. Below there's a list of prices for the most common repairs, to give you an idea of how much repairs will cost you. Any other repairs or services are charged at an hourly rate of £19.

 

Transparency is really important to us and so we will always keep you informed of the running repair costs should anything else come up that we would not have been able to forsee, which, unfortunately, happens every now and then.
