(typically chain, bar tape, cables and pads).
(typically chain, bar tape, cable inner and outer, pads, hydraulic fluid etc.). The bike stripped into major components and safety checked as above. In addition wheels trued and spoke tensions checked (against
builder’s data if available). Derailleurs removed and ultrasonically cleaned. All bearings checked, cleaned and greased; new bearings fitted if required. Hydraulic systems checked and fluid changed if necessary. Pads changed unless unworn and callipers centred. Bike rebuilt with new bar tape and cables. Road test.
The rusty wreck in your shed might be able to be returned to a usable condition. I will look at any bike and appraise you of the cost effectiveness of such work.
Call Out: £15 plus repair costs
If you’re stuck out of town and at a reasonable distance (around 10 miles) I am prepared to come and assist. There are limits to what I can do beside the road, and to the time of day at which I am prepared to travel.
Finally, I am capable of a lot of things, but I cannot turn sow’s ears into silk purses!
