Bicycle Ambulance workshop showing bench, tools, parts and bikes

At our workshop, we excel in all things cycling related. Whether it's a complete overhaul or a rebuild, we are capable of accomplishing any task, from servicing 100 year old Sturmey Archer hubs to handling cargo bikes. We go beyond the basic fitting of components.


Our expertise extends to various cargo bike brands, including Winther Kangaroo, Veloe, Biciapace, Triobike, Nihola, and more. We offer services such as servicing, building, and maintenance.


In addition to creating custom dream bicycles with top-quality parts, we possess the skills to engineer and solve problems when necessary. Our comprehensive understanding of bicycles allows us to perform tasks like reaming, facing, chasing, and much more. Regardless of the size or complexity of the service required, we are dedicated to optimising your bicycle's performance.


Our workshop prides itself on its efficiency, providing a fast turnaround time, often on the same day, without the need for appointments. Bring your bike to us and we will conduct a thorough inspection, provide you with a quote, and notify you if any further work is necessary.


Please get in touch or, even better, visit our shop to discuss any issues or concerns you have with your bicycle.


If needed, we offer courtesy bicycles at no additional cost.

Servicing includes a comprehensive maintenance routine covering all essential aspects. This entails cleaning and lubricating all moving parts, such as cables, while also addressing brake related issues like facing brake pads, un-seizing and re-aligning.


We conduct thorough inspections of nuts, bolts, tyre pressure, headset, hubs, bottom bracket, bearings, gears, and brakes to ensure their optimal functioning.


Additionally, we true the wheels and clean the drive-train. We pay attention to details, ensuring the seat post moves smoothly and the controls are correctly positioned.


If any damage or components in need of significant attention or replacement are detected during the servicing, we will promptly inform you.

Your bicycle will be returned to you in a safe and fully operational condition.
