Top Quality Bicycle Servicing, Repairs and Builds

Hart’s Cyclery is all about the service; with our servicing you can rest assured that your bike or fork will be carefully inspected and serviced to the highest possible standard, no matter which level you choose. Owner and Mechanic Graeme is a Level 3 Mechanic trained by the Cycle Systems Academy, so your bike will be serviced in-line with the highet industry standards. We hate surprises as much as you do: we'll inspect your bike in the first instance and make you fully aware of what parts may need replaced before you take the plunge with a service; we'll also phone straight away if, during the service, something crops up which you may not have expected. All levels exclude the cost of parts (except Grand Tour,which includes the cost of Jagwire inner/outer cables and bearings). All bikes are test-ridden post-servicing. If you have other requirements which do not necessarily fit in with a specific service then please ask (eg. Race Prep etc). At Hart's Cyclery we're happy to put together a bespoke servicing plan taking into account your mileage and riding conditions. To find out which level you need and to request a service please use the contact page or call.
