Servicing and Repairs

In order to get the most enjoyment from any bicycle, it is important that it is serviced on a regular basis. Not only will this help maintain efficient running and dramatically improve the life of the main transmission parts, but will also improve the safety of your bike.

Here at REDCHILLI™ Bikes we not only build our own range of road bikes, but we also offer a flexible approach to bicycle servicing and repairs and provide a dedicated range of options for the servicing of Road Race Bicycles. Some of our servicing options are given below, though we are happy to assist with any aspect of servicing/repair work. Should any new parts be required, then we will always inform you of the full cost involved prior to completing any work.
