In our workshop

Our workshop is a narrow boat ‘CARINA’ based next to the National Sealife Centre, Brindley Place Birmingham, B1 2HL opposite the NIA. We have a warehouse nearby so not all our stock is on board. We aim to offer a prompt affordable service so you can collect bikes same day if possible. On some days we have students from a specialist college, and on these days some servicing will take longer as we give students our attention. Our team includes several volunteers.

  • SERVICING: our team includes experienced and qualified mechanics. See our fixed price service menu, and see how we keep below ‘ High Street & Chain store’ prices. (CLICK TO OUR FIXED PRICE TABLE) we can do a comprehensive service , or one-off repairs and replacements. We use good quality materials, and if a second hand part can safely be fitted to keep costs down we will discuss it with you first.

  • SPECIALIST SERVICES : Customers sometimes ask us to convert a bike, change the drive train or forks or build wheels; we will discuss what is feasible, and the charge will be based on £16 per hour for this kind of work if we carry it out.
