Welcome to Backstreet Bicycle Shop - We are here to help
Make your ironhorse work as it should
If you've bought a new bike online and want it checked over, or you are riding a big event and want to make sure your bike works as it should for the big day, then this service is for you. Bike checked adjusted and all bolts / torque settings checked. Advice given to make your bike at it's best
Your bike will be fully washed, chain and cassette, will be stripped and put through the parts washer, then your bike will be serviced, brakes checked, gears set, gear aligned, all torques set, wheels trued, advice given on any parts needed. All bearings check. So much better than a shop service
the ultimate service. All drive chain parts removed and put through the parts washer. Bottom Bracket checked. Headset removed and checked. All gears reset, gear hanger aligned. Gear cables checked. Wheels trued and ball bearings checked. Brake cables check, brakes adjusted. Hydraulic brakes topped up with Mineral Oil if needed and pistons reset. Advice on any parts needed. Your frame is then Carbon Polished to make it look and work as good as it possibly can
To many to mention but here's a few
We have a full range of spokes in stock and can usually get your wheel back on the road same day. We have been building wheels for over 40 years so have a little bit of experience - Spokes at additional cost depending on make needed
Hydraulic brake bleed. We use the latest Park Tool bleed kit to bleed your brakes. Price per brake and fluid at additional charge
We don't just 'twiddle' with your gears. We make sure the whole drive chain is straight and working at it's best. We use the latest Park Tool Gear Hanger align tool to align your gears, then set your gears so they are working at their best.
We use genuine Shimano cables and each one is 'Shimano Cable Slicked' before it is placed in your bike to make sure the cable runs smooth and true. We can also fit internal cabling / routing if your frame has no cables in at present. Price includes cable
We stock a wide range of bottom brackets and bearings to help you get back on the road quickly. Price of BB will vary depending on make and model of your bike but most in stock. We have invested heavily in the latest tools, to both remove and install your Bottom Bracket without causing any impact or damage to your frame
We have a wide range of Kinetic Bearings in stock to keep your bike on the road. Most headset bearings can be replaced same day.
We have full facilities including air compressor and Part Tool compressor head to fit either tubeless tyres for you or your own tubeless tyres that you provide. We have a range of tyres, valves, rim tape and sealant in stock to get you on the road quickly
Unfortunately due to time taken we no longer actually repair inner tubes as 50% of the time the tube is beyond repair but we will more than happily fit a new tube for you (we have a full range) or one that you supply - Fitting price is on top of tube price
If you are unsure about something or just want some friendly advice / support, we will more than happily talk with you and help you achieve your goal. We love talking about bikes, equipment / gear ratios etc........
