Repair Turnaround Improved 17/04/13

We've been working hard to improve our repair turnaround time and quality.

We had a bit of a backlog for a while but that's clear now.

At the moment if you drop your bike in for repair it should be ready for you within 24 hours for normal jobs. More complicated work, bike builds etc can take longer.

We also offer a same-day service - if you book your repair/servicing ~48hrs in advance we can get your bike back the same day you drop it off. Please call us to book on 466 1740

He'll be in the bike zoo display, along with a bunch of tall bikes, freak bikes and a bike disco!!
