Freewheel Removers Competition 07/02/14

Sometimes we get asked if we have the right tool to remove _X_ type of freewheel. The answer is yes and we don't even need to check!

Freewheel removers are used less and less with the continued rise of cassette rear wheels.

£10 in Eastside Bikes vouchers if you can name them all! Good luck

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
