Would highly recommend. I had the gold service done to my bike, which now feels brand new! I found Simon to be very clear in communication and efficient with getting the work done. He went above and beyond to find the source of a click on the bike. Priced fairly.

As well as being an enthusiastic cyclist Simon is a genuine man, friendly & professional and provides a great service for cyclists. Many thanks for a speedy repair.

Simon was easily accessible, replied within minutes and kept me informed and explained the process throughout. Bike was fixed much faster than expected despite bank holiday and price very reasonable. Definitely a local discovery.

I've been using these chaps for a while now. Always great service! I would say they are on the more expensive side. But hey. You get what you pay for!

Contacted Simon for some repairs on my brakes. Response was very quick, and the job was completed the next day. Fantastic service, good value and I will definitely be returning.

Just a brief note – went out on my first decent ride on the bike yesterday and did a 20 miler. The bike is superb and everything, brakes and gears performing brilliantly. Thank you for your work and expertise.

Had the bike out twice this weekend and it was like a new bike … floated along so just wanted to drop you a note to say thanks.

Hi Simon, just been for a quick ride, the bike feels brand new! Thanks again.

Pete Burrows – June 21

Simon at Durham Bike Repairs recently re-built a wheel for me, and I was very impressed with the quality of workmanship. I keep returning as Simon always provides a professional and friendly service that is good value for money and his short turn-around times ensure I can get back out riding as quickly as possible.

Hi Simon, just a quick note to say I had a good spin on the bike yesterday evening and it felt just like riding a new bike. The ride was smooth and responsive and the best it has been for ages.

Absolutely great. Contacted Durham Bike Repairs after buying a second hand bike. Communication and turnaround were excellent, and my bike is now running along perfectly! Would highly recomend, thank you!

Excellent service. Got my bike back in working order in no time. Thank you!

*****

Completely fantastic. He fixed my bike while I waited, and casually did a better job than 3 other mechanics have done in my hometown. And all for a great price.ulously cheap price! Can't recommend enough.

Service beyond compare, knowledgeable, efficient, friendly and very reasonably priced for the speed and depth of service. I intend to be a repeat customer!

This morning was the first chance I have had to take my bike out and the gears are amazing after the tweaks you made. I could have stayed out riding all day!

Clear price points, fantastic pick-up service, Great turnaround time Would highly recommend.

I needed to get a few things repaired on my bike and Simon did a really good job and sorted me out. For people who also need to know how to repair their bike and understand what they are doing, Simon is really knowledgeable and approachable for this. He is really good at replying to messages about appointments. I have been a couple times now and couldn't recommend him more highly, he is fantastic!

If you are looking for a professional and efficient repair, look no further... Simon responded quickly to my enquiries, made useful suggestions, order new parts and had the job done in a day. Why go to a Halfords, an Evans or a boutique bike shop when Simon will make the repairs at a very reasonable price? I could not recommend Durham Bike Repairs more highly.

Found Simon via web search needing a full service on cycle cross bike. Bike was collected by Simon, kept me informed on parts required by email. Excellent service and very professional. Simon will offer comments on future upkeep and possible improvements. Overall service and customer care first class have recommended to all cycle mates as a potential option for future repairs.

Phoned on Saturday morning and Simon responded quickly and sorted my bike out within 30 minutes. Great service and friendly man. Highly recommended.

Christy Mageean – Sept 2020

*****

Faultless. Simon was easy to get in contact with and was able to fit me in very quickly. Great value and very friendly - would highly recommend.

Will Lindsey – August 2020

*****

Very happy with the job done (the fitting of gear shifter and replacement of cables), and the price was very reasonable, would definitely recommend.

Andrew Richardson – August 2020

*****

Simon did an excellent job. My bike is 20 years old, nothing really wrong with it but certainly needed some TLC. Have just got it returned and it now rides better than it ever has before. Really smooth gear changes and responsive brakes. A splendid service, reliable and friendly. Having the bike picked up and dropped off is an added bonus. Would highly recommend.

Tara Taylor – July 2020

*****

Brilliant job, my bike is 15 years old and it has never worked as well as this before! Simon has given it a new lease of life and I feel a lot happier going out on it now. The gears workloads better and it is just so much easier to ride, I wouldn't have expected that having it serviced would make such a difference but it really has been worth it. Thank you!

The Wandering Wildlings – July 2020

*****

After having an appalling service at a large bike retailer, who shall remain nameless, we stumbled across Durham Bike Repairs, and thank goodness we did! Simon has got two bikes back on the road for us with a service and some repairs. Quick, professional service and a really nice guy too. Thank you!

Michael Porter – June 2020

Durham Bike Repairs fixed up my disc brakes and cassette/freehub problems on my gravel bike! Now I can ride and cycle across mountains again so all happy over here. Top job and I would definitely recommend.

Graeme Humphries – May 2020

*****

Simon has repaired 4 bikes recently, 2 mountain and 2 road bikes. Fast turnaround and high-quality repairs. Very happy with the work done and I will certainly keep in touch.

Tim Taylor – May 2020

*****

The hydraulic back brake on my Boardman Pro MTB was spongey to the point where it was not really working at all. Simon at Durham Bikes Repairs picked the bike up, fixed it, and delivered it back in no time at all. Great service and charged a fair price. Will definitely use again.

Natallie Pemberley – May 2020

If I could give Durham Bike Repairs ten stars on here I would. Brilliant, professional service from Simon. The best bit was that he collected my bike and dropped it off after repairs had been completed, which saved me so much time and trouble in struggling to get my bike in the boot of my car.
