ROAD AND COMMUTER BIKE SERVICES

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.
