Mountain Bike Repair Services
Like all mechanical objects, even the best bikes in the world can sometimes go wrong. Whether as the result of an impact, or just down to heavy riding, mountain bike repairs need to be handled with love and care to ensure that your bike is back in business as quickly as possible.
Here at Spokes and Spanners we deal with a wide variety of repairs. The most common types include:
Your chain is an important piece of kit if you want to be able to pedal anywhere. Putting the chain back on can be easy enough to do, but if you want to ensure that it is properly attached and not going to keep slipping off, a professional repair expert like ours can fix it forever.
Safe riding is a fine balance of well adjusted nuts and bolts, that are just right and never too tight! Bolts on the handlebars, stem and seat posts can loosen with friction caused over time, meaning they need to be adjusted periodically. Yanking them too tight though, could lead to damaged threads, meaning more pricey repairs will follow close behind. Bring your mountain bike into us, and we can make sure it is ready to ride.
If your mountain bike has been sitting for a long period of time, or you have purchased one second-hand, you will probably want to adjust the seat height. If the seat won’t budge, you may need some extra help. We can use our magic skills to loosen the seat and help you find the perfect height for your ride.
It’s important to be able to ride at speed, but it is even more important to be able to stop! Just like on a cars, mountain bike brakes will need the brake pads to be replaced or repaired over time. Sometime they may also need re-positioning, or sometimes replacing completely.
As an experienced mountain bike rider, you will have worked hard to master the gears on your bike. When shifting becomes a problem, your ride can quickly take a turn for the worst. Keep your gears in tip top shape, have our professionals check and repair the tension in the cables that control your gears anytime.
