DURHAM BIKE REPAIRS

Located in Durham City, UK

  • My aim is to take the hassle out of bike maintenance so you can enjoy cycling.

  • I am a fully trained bike mechanic.

  • My interests are in keeping bikes in tip-top working order, not in selling bikes or parts.

  • My preference is "mid-range bikes". There are probably better places for "high-end bikes".

  • Unfortunately, I can't take up all of the slack created by Recycyourbike moving to Chester-le-Street ... I work very hard but it's only me!
