How We Can Help

Please note that although we want to help everyone, our resources are limited.  If you need us to work on your bike, please be sure to book in advance.  If you do not book our services in advance, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to help. 

When emailing to book a service, please confirm whether you are requesting a service at the EXPO in Youghal, or from our fully kitted out workshop at one of our shops - Kinsale Road Superstore or Parnell Place Cork City Store

Book your bike in for a build and pre-race check

Standard Road Bike: €70; Time Trial bike: €80.  This price includes assembling the bike (including torque of all bolts) from the box, a brief test ride, and the pre-race check as detailed below.  Parts and extra service needed are not included in this price - for example if new cables are needed, their supply and fitting is not included.  Depending on the quality of the cable, they may cost €9.50 to supply the inner and outer cable and a further €10 to fit the cables.  For a bike with internal cable routing and complicated cable routing, this will be charged on a time basis as some bikes are unforgiveably hard to cable !

To book your bike in for a build and full check over please send an email using this link to us telling us which day you would like to book a service for.  We will email you back to confirm the booking.

Book your bike in for a pre-race check

A pre-race check is a €40 service and includes checking your brakes, gears, and the set stop position of your rear de-reailluer to avoid any mishaps on the big day.  We also check bolts are not under-torqued using a torque wrench.  Parts and extra service needed are not included in this price - for example if new cables are needed, their supply and fitting is not included.  Depending on the quality of the cable, they may cost €9.50 to supply the inner and outer cable and a further €10 to fit the cables.  For a bike with internal cable routing and complicated cable routing, this will be charged on a time basis as some bikes are unforgiveably hard to cable (even with all of the latest helper tools such as Park Tool cable magnets) !

To book your bike in for a pre race check please send an email using this link to us telling us which day you would like to book a service for.  We will email you back to confirm the booking.
