Service & RepairsKeeping you spinning!


At Hub Velo we happily service all kinds of bikes. From shiny new road bikes, to old bikes you want to keep on the road. Between our team we’ve got experience working on everything from tandems, tricycles, time trial bikes, titanium bikes, track bikes through to old Triumphs, Treks, Terns and Thorns. And that’s just the T’s! We’re happy working on MTB’s, Bromptons (we are an approved Brompton Service Centre), Steel bikes, road bikes, carbon bikes, cyclocross bikes and really anything at all. We’ve even been known to repair the odd wheelchair, pram or wheelbarrow!

If you need a puncture repaired, we always aim to do that on the spot and it costs just £12 (hub gear or drum brake bikes are a little more at £16) including the cost of the inner tube for most bikes. No need to book, just pop in and we’ll sort you out while you grab a coffee in our cafe.

For more complicated repairs or servicing, we prefer you to book to ensure we’ve got the time to do a proper job. The best way to do this is to pop into the shop and we can give you an idea of what kind of repairs or service you need. Then you can book (usually a day or two in advance) either by phone, in person or email. If you’ve got an emergency, feel free to drop by and we’ll see what we can do, though.

We’re open from 8am until 7pm most days, so usually people drop their bike in the morning, and 19 times out of 20 we get it back to them the same day so they can pick it up on the way home.
Unlike most workshops, our main service also includes a clean of your bike so it’ll look sparkly and new. Obviously the cleaner the bike comes to us, the more time we have to spend doing the important stuff, so feel free to give it a rinse down before you come in. Any questions, just drop us a line!
