Product description

Who is this service for?

If you're the sort of rider who is meticulous at keeping their bike clean and only wants it checked over to ensure everything is running as smoothly as it should or you haven’t ridden in a while and you just want us to double check it’s safe, then this is the service for you.

We’ll be sure to conduct a comprehensive inspection before starting any service job and inform you of any parts that might need replacing or additional services needed. All in an open and transparent manner, which is very important to us.

We ensure that once the bike is back in your hands, it is functioning mechanically smoothly, the tyres are pumped, the brakes are crisp and most importantly it is safe to ride.

Provided the service is pre-booked with us, the typical turnaround time for a basic service is 1 day. It will take a mechanic approximately 1 hour to perform this service.

  • Full safety inspection
  • Light clean of frame and wheels

*) Should you have any preference when it comes to the set up of your bike or the product to be used (e.g. dry or wet lube) please let us know. Our team will be happy to accommodate.

Here's A Helpful Service Selection Tip!

Chain Checking

To help you know when it's time for a service and what to select, here is a must have tool for your own collection. Park Tool Chain Checker CC-4 click here.
A helpful 'how to video' in determining chain wear, will guide you through the effects it has on your bike and when you should be replacing it.
*Due to the nature of e-bikes and the amount of torque put through your drivetrain, we suggest in checking your chain every month as they'll wear quicker then a conventional bike.
Wearing at .5: At bare-Minimum a Basic Service is needed here providing no other issues are present. Otherwise an Expert or E-bike Service will help maintain optimal functionality while keeping it pristinely clean.
Worn at .75: It's definitely time for either a Expert, E-bike or a Pro Service and to arrange it as soon as possible. Expect that you'll need to replace some wearable parts within these services, from general use.

    Hadn't ridden my bike in ages and it was all dusty. The team at Bikenow did an excellent job in getting it back on the road. Even tied up my bar tape with a fresh finishing tape. Thanks guys!
