The Bike Doctor team are experienced bike mechanics, and will check everything on your bike from wheels to gears, and brakes to brake lights. Any minor adjustments or basic repairs can be made there and then. If they can't fix it immediately, they will let you know exactly what needs doing and an approximate cost.

It's important to keep your bike in good working order. Make sure that: 

  • It's the correct size for comfort and safety

  • Both tyres are inflated properly and have good tread

  • The chain is oiled and properly adjusted

  • Brakes work and the brake pads aren't worn

  • Reflectors and lights are fitted and working. All bikes must have a rear reflector and pedal reflectors fitted by law, and working front and rear lights during the hours of darkness, so remember to keep them clean!
