FAQs

The sessions are open to anyone and all bikes are welcome!
Currently under the Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme you can get up to £50 worth of essential maintenance on the Scottish Government. Check overs are free but parts are billable. If you exceed the £50 then you will be liable for the remaining cost. The mechanics will discuss any additional costs with you before proceeding.
We are not currently taking cash. If you need to pay for parts or extra maintenance we will take your details and get in contact at a later point.

Some work is beyond the scope of our sessions. If this happens we will refer you to a professional repair shop. If you know your bike needs extensive repair then please let us know beforehand so we can advise you further.

If you simply need more time or we dont have the part at that particular session we may ask you to come back to another session. If this happens you must book as usual.
