Taking care of your Machine

Having a safe, reliable and smooth running bike is critical to your success as a triathlete.  A mechanical problem can be an annoyance on a training ride - it can be a deal breaker for a race. 


Whilst not all issues are preventable, good bike maintenance reduces the risk of problems and helps to keep us, and others, safe on the road.  Plus our bikes are typically one of our biggest financial investments - it pays to look after them.  

Our bike mechanic is fully trained and has been servicing race bikes for a number of years - he is an accredited and insured IMI Cycle Mechanic.  He also has an eye for detail and a tenacity for problem fixing which comes in handy when chasing down that elusive rattle. 

We offer servicing, repairs and pre-race checks for all types of bikes - road, mountain, TT and cyclocross.  We can collect your bike and work on it at our own workshop before returning it to you.  We can also provide some services at your location, depending on whether specialist tools are needed.
