Servicing and Maintenance
Gerry Shields Cycles provides a range of servicing and maintenance to cater for all cyclists.
Always be sure to call us on 0161 681 2975 before bringing your bike for a service, or major repair. Smaller jobs, like a replacement tyre or tube can usually be done the same day, but we do recommend that you check with us first.
Important: Always bring your bike to us for maintenance in a clean condition. We will be able to achieve much better results working on your bike if it's not caked in mud! Clean your bike with a sponge and bucket of warm soapy water. Under no circumstances be tempted to jetwash your bike... unless you intend to ruin it! Bicycles don't have sealed bearings like motorbikes and cars and you're likely to do a great deal of damage which will result in unnecessary expense.
Standard Service from £39.00
Remove wheels, check spoke tension and true as necessary.
Re-oil/grease hubs and adjust cones as necessary.
Remove brake and gear cables. Clean, re-oil/grease them to run smoothly.
Check, lubricate and adjust brake and gear components for optimum operation.
Oil the chain if necessary.
Check tyre condition and inflate to the correct pressure.
Check and adjust the headset.
Check tightness of handlebars, seat and cranks for safety.
Test ride the bicycle and note any comments to advise the customer about. Eg, tyre wear, chain condition, possible future maintenance issues etc.
Customers are advised that extra charges may be incured for supplying and fitting replacement parts during a Standard Service.
We will always make sure customers are aware if any new parts are necessary and what the total repair costs are likely to be prior to the Service.
Comprehensive Service from £59.00
For bicycles that require a greater level of maintenance, we offer a more comprehensive service, including a complete strip down and rebuild. We recommend that customers call in with their bike to discuss what work may be necessary and get an accurate idea of the costs involved and parts required.
