Deers Leap Bikes offers a full repair and service facility – bike repairs couldn’t be simpler! Our mechanics are all Park Tools, ProTech and/or Cytech qualified, and we can work on most makes of bike. If you need a repair – anything from a puncture to a complete rebuild, bring your bike in and we’ll give you a quote.
We are open most days throughout the year, and bike repairs will mostly be carried out during the week as the shop can get very busy at weekends.
If you have bought a bike from Deers Leap, we will service it for free for you after six weeks and up to 12 weeks from purchase.
In the RH19, BN7, BN8 and BN9 postcode areas we will pick up your bike and deliver it back to you for just £10 if you book a Level 2 service or above. Pickups and deliveries are organised when we are able to schedule them; please call.
We will strip, clean and lubricate the drivetrain (chain and gear assemblies).
This is a bigger job than it sounds! (This is also the one you’ll ask for when ‘the bike has been in the garage for 2 years and you think it’s probably OK’).
Bike repairs at Deers Leap don’t involve unnecessary expense – we don’t round up time or charge for unnecessary work or parts; we just ask for the time spent. Many jobs are hard to estimate for and often are grossly overcharged: for example one large chain of bike shops charge £12.50 to fit pedals! – this is usually a two minute job, but could occasionally be longer if the threads were damaged, so we’d normally charge around £3 plus the cost of the pedals. Our hourly mechanics’ rate is £36.00 which is the industry standard – but don’t be put off; most jobs don’t take long and we will call you if there’s a problem or we think it’ll be time consuming. Other jobs such as headset fitting, tyre fitting, new pedals, cables, handlebars, punctures: all charged at the standard rate.
