Black Bikes

Workshop

About
I have been providing cycle maintenance and servicing for 10 years and am happy to work on most bikes. Apart from the occassional pre-owned bicycle I do not selll bikes.
I will refuse to work on a bike if it is too dirty or unfit to ride where the owner does not make provision for me to make it safe to ride.
The Black Bikes workshop is kitted out for most service requirements including hydraulic brake bleed however I do not currently service suspension systems, I can uninstall and re-install units for you to be sent to an appropriate tuning workshop.
I am Cytech certified and Bosch licensed and can carry out diagnostic service on Bosch motors.
Please call or text07873126093 to make sure I can take your bike in.

Wheelbuilding

About
Wheel building is charged at £45 per wheel plus components. I will build wheels from components provided by clients however I will provide spokes and in the case of rebuilds will not reuse spokes except in exceptional circumstances.
In many cases I would recommend DT Swiss rims and spokes for strong builds and easy tubeless set up where required.
Allow up to 14 days for custom wheel builds. Call or text 07873126093 to discuss your requirements.
