Like a car, your bike is a mode of transport, which needs to be checked regularly to make sure everything is in working order. You wouldn’t drive a car that failed an MOT, so if you’re serious about biking, why would you risk riding a dangerous bike? (If it is, we’ll let you know!!)

    So leave your bike with a Cytech Qualified Mechanic and we’ll get you riding safely again.

    We offer various service levels for your bike, we’re flexible too, so if you need something a little more than a Bronze but not quite a Silver we’ll work something out.

    10% discount on any replacement parts required from our shop, included with all services.
