Workshop Overview

We can basically do anything!

We can repair any type of bike from the very basic to high-end competition bikes both mountain and road which require top class mechanical expertise. No job is too big or too small! Regardless of the repair, we will get you back on your bike as soon as possible. With prior notice we can have it done in a day.

At Cycleways, our aim is to provide you with professional & quality repairs at a realistic price.

We have four main services which have a basic structure. This can be altered to suit your needs or choose any of the services from the menu. (Combining services is often cost effective, for example combine a fork service with any of the set services and reduce your fork labour cost by 10%, this is because it’s much more time efficient to do whilst servicing other parts of the bike) If you have a budget for your repair, we can work around that too. If the repair is likely to exceed your budget, we’ll contact you to discuss your options so there will be no hidden surprises when you come to collect your bike.

All repairs are guaranteed. Prices do not include parts unless otherwise stated.


Safety check

This is a safety assessment of the bike and all assemblies.

The check includes a general lubrication of applicable parts (i.e. chain, derailleur pivots and springs) and basic tuning of the gears and brakes.


General Service and Tune

This is a very popular service which keeps your bike running well and on top off most things.

This service includes:

  • Remove and true wheels
  • Adjust and lube derailleur’s - Tune gears
  • Check derailleur hanger and straighten if required
  • Check main bearings
    i.e. hubs/headset, bottom bracket (adjust if required)
  • Adjust brakes, calipers, pads and cables
  • General check and tighten of all stem bolts, cranks bolts, brake bolts etc
  • Lube all cables, mechanisms and chain
  • Test ride and clean


Annual Service

Again this one of our more popular services. We encourage our customers to complete this service on an annual basis or after an event with heaps of river crossings or generally very wet, this service will circumvent any wear issues due to water penetrating hubs and bottom bracket.

The annual service includes the same as the general service and tune with the addition of:

  • Clean drive chain

This service is the general service and tune and the annual services combined with the addition of:

  • Replacement of both gear cables (inner and outer- cost of cables included)
  • Replacement of hub bearings (loose bearing cost included, sealed replaced only if required p.o.a if required, if not replaced sealed bearings will still be greased)
  • Rims, hubs, frame cleaned and detailed
