Bicycle Servicing & Maintenance
The Cycle Clinic has a fully equipped workshop and the specialist knowledge to deal will all brands of drive train and bikes old and new. Also any advise that you are given freely, call in to discuss your needs.
What a service cover's
Well what is needed really. Modern bikes have different service requirements from bikes using more traditional components. For example, a modern MTB and road/gravel bikes have hydraulic disc brakes and use hubs, BB's and a headset that uses cartridge bearings. Works normally needs to be carried when these parts are worn rather than preventative servicing.
We will be able to advise you what your bike needs once we see it - this cannot be done over the phone.
Once a year for bikes that are ridden regularly it is advisable to strip it back to the frame and clean everything. All threads cleaned and the whole bike reassembled. This stops bolts seizing and becoming a problem down the line.
As we are a Campagnolo Pro shop what ever the requirements of your Campagnolo equipped bicycle, The Cycle Clinic is best place to assist you.
This service is £40 but this is not our minium charge. A full bike check will be conducted. Gear and brake setup will be done, minor truing of wheels, chain lubed and drivetrain cleaned up. Parts required be charged on top of the service cost. Fitting if these parts may incur a labour rate surcharge.
More advanced servicing is charged based on time.
Labour rate per hour - £40 exclusive of VAT.
If your bike requires less work we will bill you less.
Cost ~£100. This is the strip down to the frame. Everything is removed. Everything is cleaned. All threads cleaned and the bike reassembled. New cables are best fitted unless the cables that come out are unfrayed but all new parts are an extra charge. Any corroded bolts or other fixing can be changed at this point. All threads will be greased or anti seize used where appropriate. Please note in titanium frames we will not fit steel bolts, they jam. Any frame that requires bolts being drilled out will incur an extra labour charge.
We have the tools and the experience to deal with almost any kind of maintance on any brand of bicycle. If we lack any tools we buy them. I love tools.
Bottom bracket changes on all standards, Campagnolo Power torque, Ultra Torque, BB30, PF30, BB86..................
Bottom bracket facing and tapping.
Headset facing and reaming

With bearings we use mostly genuine main brand NTN, SKF, INA/FAG. We avoid using cheaper bearings.
The above jobs however are examples of things I can do and like all work will be charged based on time taken.
Litterally everything that a bike needs The Cycle Clinic can do it*
*the exception is suspension fork or rear shock servicing I send these of the Dalby service centre or sussed out suspension*
One thing to note The Cycle Clinic does not do half jobs. If we feel the bike is not in safe condition to use after a service (i.e the customer does not agree to have essential parts replaced) we reserve the right to decline to carry out the work. Every bike that comes into the workshop must leave road legal and in a safe condition to ride.
