Puncture repair and a squirt of oil on the cables
You have a number of bikes that need attention and not sure whether you want on site visit or workshop repair
Your bike needs any one of these :- annual service, drivetrain upgrade, hydraulic brakes bleeding, suspension work or pivot bearings.
Issues with the gears, chain is jumping or slipping but only when under load
This is normally caused by one of three things,
- The gears are out of adjustment, either with cable tension, alignment of the mech or poor cables – in which case can be fixed on site.
- The chain has worn so badly that is jumping off the teeth of the cassette when you apply pressure, some gears will be fine, others will jump all the time – in this case, you are looking at new chain, cassette, jockey wheel and potentially chainrings at the front. – In this instance I would need to take the bike away for repair
- The chain and cassette are not worn, and the gears are adjusted correctly, however, things are still jumping, or even the pedals are rotating totally but the power is not getting to the wheel – in this instance the Freehub has failed (or is starting to fail). The rear wheel needs to be stripped down and the freehub replaced or overhauled. This will only be done in the workshop – so you need to book a collection.
You use the bike on a regular basis, and the gears or brakes or something is not quite right
Bike has been stored in the garage or shed for last few months / years, and you want to start using it again
Please book an On-Site appointment, for this sort of bike, I would normally recommend replacing the gear cables (£20 set), brake cables (£15 set), brake blocks (£7.50) and inner tubes £6 each). The time taken would be approx. 30-45mins.
If you chain is badly rusted, or the wheels have rusted or broken spokes, the bike may not be economic to repair.
I do not believe in just oiling cables to make them better – as you will be calling me in a week or so because the gears or brakes are not working again. The rubber in the brake blocks and innertubes perishes over time, hence replacing these.
