I Want To Fix My Bike – bike servicing

So…

I get asked an awful lot, to check over our little people’s bikes

so here i am 🙂

here we are… I Want To Fix My Bike in Harrogate

if your bike looks like the one above, then sadly the conversation ends here 🙂

however, if it’s just a bit of TLC you need for your little persons’s pride and joy then i’d love to help x

To begin with i will be mainly concentrating on children’s bikes and if things go ok/to plan and there is enough demand, i may do some proper grown up training so i can look after the big peoples bikes too 🙂

if you need some help then please drop me a line to:- [email protected]

or

give me a call on 07930585022

Bikes will be needed to be dropped off at the IWTRMB man cave 🙂

i can collect bikes but a small charge will be incurred to cover my time and cost of fuel

so proof in the pudding that if you look after your bikes and invest in keeping them maintained they will last your children’s needs for them out and many more to come and will hold their second hand values
