You might be surprised at how much life I can restore into your old bike which may at first glance seem to be a lost cause.

Having your bike checked regularly can keep it on the road for longer for less expense. Here at SFS Cycles I offer a £20 safe to ride service with minor adjustments to ensure that you know your bike is safe to ride or what work is needed to get it into a safe condition.

If your bike has not been used for a while, I can strip it down and rebuild it so that it is in the best condition that it can be.

As a guide, service costs for a mountain bike / hybrid with standard bearings, rim brakes/mechanical disc brakes would cost £75, whilst bikes with hydraulic disc brakes / more expensive bearings, would cost £95.
