Apologies, but we are not currently offering mobile maintenance. The excellent Orange Fox Bikes in Muir of Ord offers a bike pickup service – give owner Mark Goodwill a call.

Love riding your bike but not so sure about looking after it? We can help!

From checking to see if your bike is safe to ride to a full-strip down and rebuild, our mobile mechanic would love to take a look at your bike. And just like with our bike hire, we’ll come to you, so there is no need to worry about how you’re going to get your bike to the shop. Here’s what one of our customers said:

“Giles gave my 7 year old commuter a thorough makeover with new cables, brakes, bar tape and a lot of TLC everywhere else. The bike came back looking new and riding well too. Impressed with how quickly the service was done as well.” Graham, Muir of Ord.

Pick your service

We offer 3 levels of service – Standard, Supreme and “The Full Monty”. Tell us which one you want when you book and we’ll do the rest.

With all three services, you’ll get a full audit of the condition of your bike at the end, so you’ll know what we’ve done and if there is anything else we recommend. If we arrive to service your bike and find something is already horribly wrong and it’s not worth carrying on (like the frame is cracked, for example) we’ll tell you straight away and we’ll only charge £20 for the call out. If we find any issues as we progress through the service, we’ll have a chat and find out what YOU want us to do.

We would like to think we could fix your bike up there and then, and in many cases that’s true. However, if we need to order particular parts, or the job is taking longer than usual, we may have to either take the bike away and return it at a later date, or make a repeat visit. In both cases there would be no extra charge – you pay the same as if we did it there and then. If you know (or suspect) your bike will need new parts in advance, let us know when you make your booking and we can order parts in beforehand. We use Madison as our parts supplier, and if it’s in stock we can get it for you.

Can you show me how to fix my own bike?

Of course we can! If you’re interested in being shown how to look after your own bike, why not book a mechanic for a half or whole day? Under their supervision, you’ll be working on your own bike and learning at the same time. Prices from £55 for a half day, plus parts.

How do I book?

Give us a call on 07964 779663, drop us an email to info@blackislebicycle.co.uk, or use the contact form below. We offer maintenance slots throughout the day, Wednesdays to Saturdays.
