We 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 $85 (less than a General Service). 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 labour charge for their fitting. How's that for value? 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.

Most Popular

Pro Service (1.5-2.5 hours)

 

Recommended for off-road bicycles every 6-12 months, and road bikes every 12 months. A great option to take extra care for bikes that get ridden on rough terrain or through harsh conditions like mud or water. Extra time is spent on the wheelset health, as well as opening and cleaning areas where earth and water can pool.

Maintainence to consider

Suspension Fork Rebuild (40-60 mins)


Recommended for mountain-bike forks every year for most riders (riding 2-4 times per month), or every 6 months (if riding 1-2 times per week). 

 

Don't wait till its too late! Avoid expensive fork damage that remains hidden inside the fork until it is opened and inspected.

$130

In this service, our aim is to return the fork back to the factory standard. We inspect for damage and correct damper function before replacing the tired, worn seals with new genuine ones. We replace the oil which has picked up dirt or vanished through the seals so that the fork bushes and stanchions are protected. After re-assembling the forks we check the condition of the headset and give it a clean before re-fitting to the bike. Lastly, we help you get the correct air pressure and settings.

 

- Remove forks completely from bike and clean them

- Separate the upper and lower legs and clean the internals

- Check for wear and damage

- Check for correct damper and air spring function

- Replace genuine oils and seals

- Clean headset and fittings

- Re-assemble, fit to the bike, check brake pad alignment

- Assist you with correct air pressure and settings

 

Includes $80 of labor and $50 for genuine seals and oil

Suspension Pivot Rebuild (40-60 mins)


Recommended for suspension frames every 1-2 years depending on the pivot system and ride conditions (more wet and mud riding requires this more often).

 

Don't put up with a noisy bike and average bump absorbsion. Let us take care of those pivots.

$60-120

Our aim is to keep your bearings and bushes in good shape so that they last, increase suspension performance, prevent play, and keep quiet.

 

- Check bolt torque

- Remove and inspect all pivot bushings or bearings

- Clean all components

- Replace waterproof grease inside sealed bearings

- Replace worn bushings or bearings (extra parts cost if necessary)

- Re-fit, torque to spec and test ride

Depends on frame type, number of pivots and difficulty
