What does it cost?

The cost of an overhaul is $450 (inc. GST). Parts required are an additional charge.

Abbotsford Cycles will provide a quote prior to starting the work, usually when the bicycle is brought in.
We will contact you for approval if additional costs more than $20 above the quote are identified as the job proceeds.


How long will we need your bicycle?

Our booking system is based on completing the work and returning the bicycle to you by 5pm on the specified day.

If an unforeseen issue arises, we will alert you to the nature of the problem, propose solutions, and negotiate a new expected pickup time/day.
