Safety Check – £15.00

Our safety check for your bike is perfect for when your bike has not been serviced or used for a while, or if you have bought a second-hand bike. We will systematically check your bike frame, brakes, gears and tyres. If your bike needs work we can provide  you with a detailed checklist to decide what to do next. If you then choose a regular or deluxe service with us we will not charge for the safety check-up.
