This is what we are all about, servicing repair, building, the mainstay of Basic Bikes.
Have a browse below at some of the most popular servicing options we provide.
The important stuff to remember if you book your bike in please have it to us by 10:00
on day of servicing, to ensure same day completion. Please allow a little time when you drop off so we can assess your bike and discuss with you the work to be done.
Generally our M.O. is "no news is good news" we don't contact you to tell your bike is ready
, only if there is a problem will we annoy you during the day! (very rare less than 2% off work)
All work is ready for 17:00 weekdays
, any other times we'll discuss with you.
Parts and lubricants are at extra cost below is labour only, we will give you a quote when you drop off, no surprises!
General Service $90.00
The basic's, to make sure your bike is going well. Wipe down check frame, lube cables, true wheels, grease and adjust hubs as ness, tune brakes and gears, check tyres, lube chain, test ride.
General Service with Drive Clean $130.00
Our most popular service! All the stuff we do in the General Service, but this time we remove cranks, cassette and scrub the chain in a 3 stage process then re install, this greatly extends the life of the drive components. Alternatively we can replace all these parts in this service if they are worn out.
Full Service Full Suspension $320.00
The full works service, well worth doing this once a year as a package which saves approx. $90.00 on doing the jobs separately. Forks, shock, linkage are all serviced, brakes are flushed with new fluid. Bearings and seals replaced as needed parts at extra cost.
Suspension Fork Service $80.00
An every day job in the workshop, we service most makes and models. Servicing your suspension regularly is very important to maintain durability and performance. Many fork units require approx. 40hrs service intervals. Often this will just be a change of oil and grease, but we also stock seals and parts. We only use original parts and fluids, all jobs are done to manufacturers specifications. Parts are extra to this service. This price is may vary if damper needs re built, we will advise at booking time so no surprises.
Dropper Seat Post Service $90.00
Just like your fork and shock posts need some love too. Full strip and rebuild or just a simple outer tube lube, which can cost less. We can advise on the best service once we see it. Parts and fluids at extra cost.
Wheel Building $90.00
All wheels are generally built with DT Swiss or Sapim spokes. We can build wheels to suit your specific needs, and will advise on the best compinations, of rim, hub and spokes. Wheels are tensioned and trued with DT tools and gauges, we can for a small extra cost provide a copy of the wheels tension, lateral and vertical measurements.
All wheels are guaranteed to stay true and tensioned, we do however prefer to check them after approx 6hrs of ride time, just to make sure they are perfect.
