The Workshop


Here’s where we fix and fine-tune all bikes to make sure they’re ready to be ridden and ridden (and ridden). We offer a complete range of repair and fitting services in our workshop, so give us a call and we’ll happily get you booked in.


New service prices come into effect on January 7th

From January the 7th we will be applying a modest increase to our Standard and Premium services as well as introducing a cheaper ‘Bicycle Check’ for bikes that just need adjustments rather than a full service.
This is mainly because the cost of the sundries we use in a service such as lubricants, degreaser, blue roll, cleaning products etc have increased in cost over the past year so we need to make sure we cover those costs. We’ve also found with modern bikes internal cable routing and proprietary design has increased service time where a simple job such as a gear cable change or bottom bracket swap can take much longer on a modern frame. Rather than rush to complete the job in an allotted time we want to be able to make sure each job is completed to the highest standard so a modest increase will cover the extra time taken to do this.

It’s still the same five star service you’ve come to expect from Bikeshak’s workshop whilst remaining competitive against other premium independent dealers and of course offering a much better, more thorough service than chain stores.

New ‘Bike Check’ available – £35

Not all bikes that come into the store require a service, some just need careful set up and adjustment to get them working their best. We will offer a new service option of a ‘Bike Check’ for £35 which will include:

  • Adjustment of the gears and brakes
  • Full nut and bolt check and any adjustments where necessary
  • Tyres inflated
  • Free accessory fitting

If you’re wheeling your bike out the shed for the first time in a while, have purchased a good quality second hand bike or want peace of mind before a big ride our Bike Check is the perfect option.

All other jobs not covered by the standard services or to be undertaken as stand alone jobs are charged on an individual basis inclusive of VAT, all prices are a guide only and adjustments will be made for extra time taken to complete jobs. We operate on an hourly rate of £50, any jobs that do not fall under our workshop itinerary will be charge based on this rate and time taken.

*Service labour prices are based on bikes being in a 'serviceable condition' by which we mean the bike and all components are clean enough to work on, not seized or damaged and are mechanically and electronically compatible. Extra time taken above a normal service period (90 mins approx) to clean, repair and remove seized or dirty parts will result in extra labour charges being added to the bill after the customer has been notified and agrees for the work to proceed. We want all our services to leave the shop in the best possible condition and we want to give you the knowledge to prevent problems resulting from worn, seized or damaged components. We welcome any and all questions regarding bike maintenance and care so please don't hesitate to get in touch.

We always aim to complete the job on the day it is booked in, although if we need to order any parts that are out of stock it may take longer. Regardless, we will always keep you updated and informed on the progress of your repair.

Suspension Servicing

Due to the sheer number of spare parts needed, we send most suspension forks & shocks to specialists for servicing.  We only use the very best in the business, depending on the make & model of your suspension we will send them to TF Tuned, Mojo or Specialized UK for servicing & tuning.
