At Bike Knack, we don’t believe in charging for unnecessary work. We offer a basic and full service for bicycles as listed below. However, we find the vast majority of our clients want a specific task carried out. It might be spoke replacement, a brake bleed or anything up to full rebuilds. Alternately, you may need us to find why your bike is creaking or your gears aren’t changing properly. We are happy to diagnose problems and carry out work to your requirements. If you are uncertain what needs doing, we will give you a professional opinion and let you make the call: there are no hard sells here.

The services below are just an indication of the work we can undertake. Dave is a trade-qualified fitter and turner, not just a bike mechanic, so can carry out unusual jobs like bob trailer modification or adult tricycle repair. Feel free to ask if there is something specific you want done. Prices listed are for labour only. If parts are required, customers are welcome to supply their own, or we can source components for you at or below market prices.

Dave can be contacted on 0437 017022 or by email to book a service or discuss any work not listed here.
