Look mum no hands!

Meet the Mechanics

We've been fixing bikes on Old St. since 2010. 

One of the great things about London's cyclists is the sheer range of bicycles you see on the road. Chances are if it's got two wheels (sometimes three...) someone is riding it to work.

Our team of mechanics have a huge wealth of experience and between us we can do it all. Road bikes, Bromptons, cargo bikes, MTBs, hybrids, Dutch bikes and 'cross bikes. From wheel building, electronic gear systems, hydraulic brakes, suspension, belt drives and tubeless tyres, we've got it covered. We are focussed on high quality work, fast turnarounds and excellent communication.
 

Meet the team!
