Servicing and Repairs
We have three well equipped service workshops here at Planet BIKE in which we are able to carry out repairs quickly and professionally. Because we have three workshops and plenty of storage space we have a quick turnover, doing services on the day they are booked in, meaning you can continue with your riding as quickly as possible. We have two trained mechanics that are always on hand to get your bike back to a professional working order no matter what the problem. Apart from aesthetically how the bike looks we strive ourselves in bringing the bike back to "as new" order when carrying out any service.
We have lots of storage facilities available therefore you can leave your bike with us whenever you're free and pick it up when the service is done, this way we are always able to work around you and you'll never need to wait too long either.
We are able to repair anything regarding a bicycle so no matter what your bicycles issue we can fix it and please drop it in or alternatively then please give us a call for a free quotation.
This service covers everything on the bike, no matter what size the bike is or what condition the bike is in.
