Bike Servicing And Repair

Escape Bike Shop Bike Service

Ensuring that your bike is safe and up to the job is vital - and could be the difference between enjoying your ride or cursing your bike as you start your long walk home/to your car. After spending your hard earned cash on the latest bike or components, it make sense to look after the bike and make sure that the parts last and you get your moneys' worth.

Escape Bike Shop has a workshop kitted out with every Park Tool we could possibly need, plus specific tooling form Hope, Rockshox, Fox and Mavic. Our workshop manager Tom is Cytech qualified and has 10 years of experience fettling all sorts of bikes!
