Offerings

Servicing

We offer everything from basic puncture repairs through to complete strip and rebuilds, as well as wheel building and custom modifications.  This includes fitting threaded inserts to frames, electrical and electronics work (we have a state of the art Weller soldering station and experience with discrete and SM components).  We also have a Dremel, lots of fine tools as well as the obligatory spanners, allen keys, screwdrivers and torque wrenches

We are also happy to pump air into your tyres, oil your chain, tweak your gears and brakes and if you require anything more, book your bicycle in for a quick, basic or full service.  You are welcome to turn up on the day but we strongly advise booking in advance.  Please get in touch by emailing: law@probikeservice.co.uk

Reconditioned & Bespoke Bicycles

We often have a range of reconditioned bicycles for sale and are able to custom build wheelsets and bikes.  If this is of interest, please contact us

 

Workshops

Each workshop course combines theoretical and hands-on practical training and assumes a solid understanding of the content in each preceding course.  It is not necessary to complete all courses in order.  Please ask if you have any queries BEFORE booking 

Please note that we have a ‘three strike’ policy for cancellations, a ‘two strike’ policy for no-shows.  Whilst this may sound harsh, places and capacity are limited, courses run on rotation and we hate turning people away when space and resources are available
