What does it cost?

Single Speed Service is $135 inc. GST. Additional labour/parts are provided at an additional cost. Abbotsford Cycles will provide a quote prior to starting the work, usually when the bicycle is brought in. We will contact you for approval where additional costs more than $20 above quote are identified as the work 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.
