SERVICE

At Big on Bikes we have been serving cyclists in Derbyshire since 2002.  We are keen cyclists ourselves and will ensure your bike is looked after as if it were one of our own.

 

Our aim to provide you with a local professional, efficient, cost-effective bike servicing, by offering you a truly caring and professional bike maintenance service.

Below is an overview of the cycle services and solutions we provide, click on any of the options to find out more.

Cycle MOT

We offer a FREE Cycle MOT check which assesses your bike and whether it’s safe to use.

It’s a comprehensive inspection and really useful for your peace of mind.

We can then offer advise and help to resolve any issues and provide an estimate as to whether the bike is cost effective to fix. We want to try and keep as many bikes being used as possible and if they do prove to be too expensive to revive the we recommend that Adult bikes be donated to Bike Back Derby or Nottingham BikeWorks, the latter also take children’s bikes.

NB It is not, however, a “Service”, which would involve labour charges.
