The Edge Sports Shop Workshop

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 off the bike as early as possible in the morning - 12 at the latest, and then collect it later in the afternoon around 5 pm. If you have purchased a bicycle from us and you are bringing it back for a service, and live a considerable distance away, we will try to schedule so that you may only be leaving the bike with us for 3 hours instead of the day for your convenience.

Bear in mind that the age, condition and type of bike may affect the cost of the service. 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 the extra time taken to change them.

We operate a Bike Service Booking system. This enables us to turn around a bike service the same day assuming we have all needed parts in stock. If you are stuck / have an emergency we will do our best to help you at short notice - but cannot guarantee! If you wish to book a bike service, Please click here and include as much information as possible including the type of service you need, known issues, when your bike was last serviced, the make and model of the bike, and your own contact phone number.

All parts required are charged as extra, with a loyalty discount of up to 10% applied. We only fit parts that we have sourced (excepting if we cannot source the part!).

If you leave your bike in for a service, and you choose not to go ahead with any work after we spend time checking the bike, there will be a charge for that


NB. This service is only available if you purchased the bike at The Edge Sports.
