The Pro service is ideal for bicycles which have come to the end of a busy training or racing season or alternatively, bicycles which require preparation for a big race or epic journey. Imagine the reassurance of knowing that you can put your bike away for winter in the confidence that you will return to it in good as new condition next season.

Your bike will be taken for a test ride before being professionally cleaned and returned to you. All work carried out will be guaranteed for six months.

No bike will ever be turned away for being dirty, even if it's REALLY dirty! However, no bike will be returned to it's owner in anything less than gleaming condition. This is because the workshop needs to remain clean and tidy and it's rather nice to have your bike returned all clean and sparkling! For this reason there may be an extra labour cost for particularly filthy specimens and customers are politely asked to be aware of this before leaving their bike for service or repair.

N.B. No pressure washers or high pressure hoses are used for cleaning of bikes or components

£125 excluding parts

Secure Bike Storage

We understand that you may have a number of bikes or you have limited space to store your own bikes securely and safely so we offer a storage service for bikes that are not currently in use. Why spend summer tripping over your winter bike when you could send it to us in spring for a clean and strip prior to being stored in our RedCare alarmed premises. Likewise, at the end of the summer sportive, TT, triathlon or race season pass your race bike to us for clean, strip and winter storage. It'll be good as new when the sun comes out for the next season
