About maintenance & repair

Maintenance

Maintenance doesn't just mean preventing a bike from breaking: after a service, your bike is always surprisingly lighter and smoother to ride.

We do maintenance in the form of a service. We advise you to have your bike serviced once a year.
A service takes 60 minutes, during which time we check all parts of the bike.

  • Check spokes and tighten where necessary

  • Tighten nuts

  • Check light and repair if necessary

  • Check (manual) brakes and readjust where necessary

  • Check chain and tighten if necessary

  • Check tyres and renew if necessary in consultation

A servicing gives three results:

  • the bike keeps on riding - no squeaking and ticking of running parts

  • the bike lasts longer - no wear and tear that goes from bad to worse

  • there are fewer intermediate repairs - renew before things break down

Repair

We work with fixed hourly rates, and estimate a standard number of minutes for just about all common repairs. An extensive overview is given below.

Basically we repair all kinds of bikes, also for example (high end) racing bikes and folding bikes (Brompton, Beixo).
But there are two exceptions to this rule.
We only repair e-bike drives if they are made by Bosch, Shimano or Bafang - because they are of good quality, they can also be repaired by us.
We don't repair a bike if it's really too old and worn out to be worth the trouble and cost of repairing it.

Sometimes it is questionable whether a repair still pays off. A worn out bike can just be worn out. If you have any doubts about that, discuss it with us. If we have our own doubts, we will also tell you, and talk to you about what is the best choice for you.
