Specialists in Retro & Road Bikes

Repairs and Servicing

Stallion Cycles offer a complete repair and servicing workshop from childrens bikes to hybrids, racing bikes to mtb's, 30 years old or brand new. Helpful, friendly, cost effective, keeping you on the road with minimal fuss and outlay.   

All repairs are conducted by an experienced cycle mechanic and include a detailed report of work including any parts replaced. All replaced parts are returned to the customer or disposed of upon request. Customers are informed if the cost is more than estimated before proceeding with the work.

All repairs are guaranteed for 3 months.

No work is invented. Honest repairs for honest prices.  


Assessment - £10

If your bike has had lots of use but little servicing and attention or has sat at the back of the garage for a few years it maybe worth having your bike assessed. The assessment will give you an idea of the cost to repair and whether it is financially viable, although I try to keep prices reasonable if the bike requires a complete overhaul and lots of new parts it is sometimes better to replace it altogether.

Book your bike into Stallion Cycles for a fully itemised report which includes an estimate of the cost of repair including parts and a valuation of your bike to allow you to make the right choice.
