Velosport workshop

Your bike is in safe hands at Velosport. We operate a state of the art workshop with the latest tools and equipment. As keen cyclists ourselves, we know that every ride is that much more enjoyable when your bike is maintained in top form.

To request an appointment to have your bike serviced, use our online form, give us a ring or just drop by the shop. Our mechanics are always ready to help.

Please note that parts brought outside of the shop may be subject to additional labour charges.

Due to high demand and low storage space, we are asking all of our customers who have a service booked to bring their bike into store 24 hours prior to their service at the earliest (on the day of would be better). We ask all completed bikes to be picked up within 48 hours of completion (unless agreeed otherwise with a member of staff).

Free 6 week service

After the first few weeks of riding your new bike, it will go through what is known as a 'breaking in period'. During this time the gear and brake cables will start to stretch and you might find that the bike does not ride as smooth as it did on day one. For all new bikes brought fom us we offer a free 6 week service, where we will give your bike a full check and make sure it is running smoothly and safley.

To book your bike for its free 6 week service use the contact form here.

Crash assessment £40

For bikes that have been in an accident, we offer a crash assessment service. This service covers a full inspection of the bike, highlighting any noticeable damage and estimated cost of repair. The crash assessment report wil then be emailed to you.
Please note that we will not carry out any repairs at the time of conducting the crash assessment. Any work that needs to be carried out will need to be booked in with our mechanics unless otherwise specified. If your bike is made of carbon fibre, or has carbon fibre parts, we cannot guarentee the structural integrity of these parts and strongly recommend getting any carbon parts checked by a carbon repair expert.

Carbon repair

Estimated costs for carbon bokr repairs are as follows:
  • Labour costs for stripping the bike to the frame £160 (upfront cost).
  • carbon health check £180 (upfront cost).
  • Repair work will be invoiced on a case by case basis. Additional admin costs will apply.
Please note that the £180 health check and albour costs are non refundable if after the check the bike is deemed unrepairable.
All carbon work is carried out by a third party. Velosport is not liable for costs or compensation from work errors or delayed times.
