Carbon Bike Technics - Full Bike Policy

CBT - Full Bike Policy

If any full bike is brought in for an inspection and we find it safe for a repair to be carried out we do require the frame to be stripped down for the work to be done.

The options open to every customer are as follows:

  • Take the bike away to be stripped and bring it back.
  • Pay £80 for a full strip & re-build.
  • Pay £40 for the parts to be stripped but not re-built.

We require the frames to be stripped as we lay them flat to work on them and if any repair is to be painted we need to cover up everything that is not being painted. 

It makes our lives a lot easier and we do not have enough room for full bikes either.

Please note the Workshop will be closed for one week 11th July to the 17th July

Our painter is also on holiday from the 6th July to the 20th July so this will add extra time to all the jobs that require painting sent in from the 13th June.

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused

The Best Tales of woe!

We hear lot's of stories of how carbon frames get damaged and we thought we would share a few of what we think are the best!
  • The Scorned Wife - She attacked her husbands cycle with a wok!
  • Driving into the garage and forgetting that the Cycle is on top of the car!
  • Young son - jumped on the top tube of a brand new frame that was not even built yet!!
  • Neglected girlfriend - she thought her boyfriend loved his bike more than her so she took a hammer and smashed up his bike!
  • The gate jumper - Guy jumps over the gate to have a wee, jumps back over and judged it sooooooo wrong - landed on his frame!
  • Traffic lights - stopped at the lights and put his foot down......his cleats slipped on the floor until he was doing the splits and broke his top tube!
