Kids Bike and

Single Speed Services

We generally don't charge call-out fees..

..however, we do require a minimum spend on labor to make a booking, depending on your area. The minimum for most of Melbourne is around $99 (the same as a General Service). Smaller jobs may present a call-out fee. Please call for a quote. All pricing includes GST.


Spare parts

Replacement of normal wearing parts (chain, cassette, chainrings, and brake pads) do not incur an additional labor charge for their fitting when carrying out a General Service. All work will be carried out following your approval.


We keep it clean and easy

All work is carried out at our service vans on the street or your driveway, not in your lounge room. We leave no trace and require no water or electricity to operate. Rainy days- no problem.



We accept Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, bank deposit, and cash.


Group Discounts

Good discounts are available for servicing three or more bikes at a time. See if you can get some friends and colleagues together at work and have a corporate service day.

Please note: A minimum labor spend of $85 per call-out applies most of Melbourne due to travel time and expenses, however, there is no actual call-out fee. Contact us if unsure
