Bike Service and Repair: For All Your Riding Needs

Bike Knack is a Salisbury bicycle service and repair business dealing with all types of bikes. Mountain bikes are a particular specialty. However road bikes, commuter and touring bikes, cyclocross bikes, E-bikes and kid’s bikes are also covered. If you wish to supply your own parts for a bike service, we are happy to fit those. Alternately, we can source components for you at or below market prices. No job is too small or too large. A full suspension service, new bar tape or changing a tube—all are welcome.

We are also happy to take on unconventional jobs. Dave is a trade-qualified fitter and turner, not only a bike mechanic. Wheelchair wheel repair, bob trailer customization and modification of an adult tricycle are just some of the less common tasks we have carried out. If you have a bike that has been lying in the shed for a while and just need to get it running again, we can help. Equally, if you are a serious rider, we will make sure everything is functioning smoothly for training and racing. We can work within your budget and advise on choices suited to your riding style.

If you can’t transport your bike to our workshop, we can collect from your home or workplace. After-hours drop-off and pick-up are also available. This makes us a convenient option if you find it hard to get to a bike shop during opening hours. If you are in need of service, repair or customization, use the Contact tab to leave a message. You can also email or give Dave a call on 0437 017022.

Bike Knack also provides parts to the growing belt drive bicycle community. Gates Carbon Drive is a belt-based drive system that does not rust or need lubrication. It thus offers a useful option for bike commuters who don’t want to deal with grease. We can convert suitable frames to belt drive and also provide replacement parts if you currently own a Gates belt drive bicycle. See our Shop for available products.
