Mountain bike servicing

We can service your mountain bike

If I have a bike in that I have not seen before or haven’t worked on for a long time, I assess it first and make a list of the required work to be done and then I contact the customer. I find this works well because more often than not a standard service will only scratch the surface. I will never hand a bike back half done.

Mountain bike servicing

Mountain bikes can be used in some harsh environments and as such it is very difficult to predict when servicing will be due. Consider that an MTB chain will last a fraction of the time a road bike chain can. On average, MTB chains can last anywhere between 250 to 800 miles whereas a road bike chain will last anywhere from 1500 miles and upwards.

Water damage is the MTB’s worst enemy. If it’s used regularly then more often than not certain parts like brake pads and sometimes bottom brackets (b/b’s) need changing between services.

I am able to tailor the servicing to the individual’s needs to be sure the bike stays on the trail and not in the workshop

Suspension must not be neglected either, especially forks. I have seen many forks either ruined or in need of major work because of a lack of or incorrect servicing.

Standard MTB bike service

£45.00 plus parts.

This will cover all adjustments required including basic replacement of parts such as cables, brake discs/pads and the truing of wheels. If more complex parts need replacing, like a bottom bracket (b/b), then a small additional labour charge is made.

Full MTB bike service

£95.00 plus parts.

A full service is where the bike is practically stripped down to it’s component form and everything gets checked and either serviced, repaired or replaced. If it requires extensive replacement parts then I will always contact the customer beforehand to discuss cost and options.

Other typical services include full bike builds to minor repairs, adjustments or specialist frame repairs.
