Every bike is different and I can always give you a free quotation, but from experience, most service/repair costs are between 30 and 60, including parts.
I understand everyone has a budget and I endeavour to work within that. I wont replace anything unnecessarily and if I have recommendations to replace more expensive parts, I'll always phone you first before going ahead with the work.
I am pretty flexible and I can just repair a puncture or swap over your tyres if that's all you need. I often do minor jobs, like replacing inner tubes or brake blocks.
Contact me for more details.
