Hi, my name is Dan, your local mobile bicycle mechanic, I have been proudly serving cyclists in Birmingham and surrounding areas for over 11 years.

Services & Prices

To keep your bike in tip top condition, it's a good idea to have it serviced regularly - as often as every 4 months depending on how (much) you use it and where you store it. If you've ridden many miles between services be prepared for some parts to need replacing.

A Standard service will get your bike running as safely and smoothly as is possible without “major surgery”. (Please note parts are not included in the price)

My minimum callout charge is £35 (this includes labour up to the value of £35).
