Bike Servicing Information and Pricing


Here at The Edge Sports Shop, we love your bike, and our Cytech Certified Bicycle Mechanics put every effort into making sure it leaves us in good working order by doing the work needed with your approval.  

Our Servicing works in the spring-summer season on a bookings only basis, rather than a drop-in service.  When you have a booking, we need you to drop the bike as early as possible in the morning - 12 at the latest, and then collect later in the afternoon around 5pm.  If you have purchased a bicycle from us and you are bringing it back for a service, and live a big distance away, we will try to schedule so that you may only be leaving the bike with us for 2 hours instead of the day for your convenience.

 
Bear in mind that the age, condition and type of bike may affect the cost of servicing. Older bikes which clearly need a lot of parts will only be taken with a deposit for the service.  It is the policy of this business that we will not do sub-standard work.  For example, if you only want us to fix the brakes but the chain is shown to be worn beyond recognised safety limits such that it must be replaced, we will need to do all or none of the work.
 
The type of bike you ride and the amount of usage dictates how often it should be serviced.
 
Time Trial Bikes will always have a supplementary service charge if new cables are required.  Other road bikes with internal cables may also attract this supplementary charge, based on extra time taken to change them.
 
We operate a Bike Service Booking system – please call ahead to book in your bike for a service.
 
Parts required are charged as extra, with the loyalty discount of up to 10% applied
