About Our Servicing

At Chelmer cycles we pride ourselves on our workshop which has over 70 years total experience of quality bicycle servicing, custom tuning, custom building and professional repairs.
Our bike mechanics are all highly skilled individuals who will go to almost any length to ensure that our customers are happy and a job is done properly. So, if your bike needs some regular TLC, or a specific problem needs some expert attention, you’ve come to the right place.
Having a nice bike is important but having a working bike is essential. We are able to service all makes and models and will give you an estimate before we start. We will always call if additional work or parts are required.
Our experienced bike technicians Pete, Ash Joel or Jonathan are happy to talk you through the work required in as much detail as you wish. They are very used to working on high-end bikes, or commuter bikes.
We have experience with all the latest technologies, in particular electronic shifting from SRAM, Shimano & Campagnolo. You'll be dealing with a named individual in the workshop, who will be available for direct contact should you have any queries during or after the service.
We can also collect and return your bike if required.
We're here to help as much as possible.
For more information or to make a booking call us on 01245 287600 or email us.
