All prices are listed above as a guideline and can vary depending on the style., age and condition of bike. We have a minimum labour charge of £10.00. All parts are charged in addition to labour along with the charge for fitting these parts (except for our platinum service)

At Chiltern Velo we have limited space for storing customers repaired bikes and therefore will have to charge a fee of £3.00 per day storage for any bike that is not collected on the date agreed.

Like other vehicles and machinery cycles should be regularly serviced and maintained to ensure they are functioning safely and efficiently. All of our qualified cycle mechanics are trained to the highest industry lever for cycle mechanics (Cytech NVQ)

Listed below are basic checks which should be used purely as a guide to general used. The style of cycle you ride and the amount of usage will always dictate the frequency of servicing. The best tip Chiltern Velo can offer you is that it is best to regularly service and maintain your cycle, rather than an emergency repair as something has broken.
