Our rates are visible to the public, but where there are activities such as day clinics or support services you would need to contact us as your idea of what is needed may not be the same as our view based on several years of offering these services. Where there is travelling involved, we need to recover vehicle costs and time spent travelling which is time not spent earning money fixing bikes. Don't be put off though, the bike industry is growing massively and there is plenty of room for different approaches to delivering bike maintenance to ensure customers a safe and enjoyable ride.
