Does your bike need some tender loving care? Whether it needs a puncture repair, new tyres, gears adjusted, wheel repair, service or a full rebuild, I can probably help you.

I operate from a workshop just a couple of miles from the centre of Newent.

I will assess your bike for free, then agree with you how to proceed. I will always estimate the cost before carrying out thorough and high quality work. Don't just take my word for it; please see my Testimonials page!

Please get in touch now - details on the red banner at the top of the page. Thank you.

Robert Willis MBE: Newent Bicycle Maintenance

"Robert had my Cannondale Synapse this week. He fitted new front and rear derailleurs, new gear cables and a couple of race tyres. The service has been absolutely exemplary. Communication has been superb, letting me know what stage the repairs were at, what faults had been found and recommendations on gear choice. I was made to feel comfortable during the process and Robert is very knowledgeable, able to offer advice and guidance which was hugely appreciated. The time, attention and care that has been bestowed on my bike combined with the very reasonable price means I will never go elsewhere in future. I cannot recommend Newent Bicycle Maintenance highly enough!" Andrew

Maintenance Lessons!

I also teach bicycle maintenance. If you want to know more about how to look after your prized possession, bring it along and we will base your tuition on your own machine. The syllabus is up to you, but my customers typically ask for lessons on safety, cleaning, lubrication and minor adjustments.

I currently have five students, each of whom work on their bikes with me between once a week and once a month.

A 1965 Moulton Deluxe which I renovated. I upgraded the Sturmey Archer FW 4 speed hub to accept two sprockets and a derailleur - now it is 8 speed. Modern, lighter rims, brakes, mudguards and handlebars.

Measuring the spoke thickness (gauge) before ordering replacements.

Another renovation. This is a 1950s Dan Genner track bike with a fixed wheel, which I upgraded for the road with contemporary components. Look at those beautifully slim steel frame tubes!

It's so easy to damage small bolts and nuts. Using a precision torque wrench gets it right first time.
