Dead Rats Cycles take great pride in making beautiful bikes that function perfectly. Our emphasis is on quality repairs, not selling you stuff. Regularly serviced bikes are cleaner, greener, safer & save you money!

No two bikes are identical so, unlike many shops, we have no fixed rates for jobs – though you can get an idea here. We’re Cytech trained, quotes are free, labour is £35 per hour and you’re charged to the nearest minute.

New parts are only fitted if absolutely necessary, unless you request otherwise. You may bring your own parts to fit, or buy online and have them delivered here by prior arrangement.

You may be charged for cleaning your bike if it’s really dirty, as otherwise it’s impossible to work on precisely. A ‘courtesy bike’ may be hired for a £50 deposit during the time your bike’s in the workshop.

You will always be contacted in the event of work going over our agreed budget/deadline and reminded to return when it’s time for a new part/work. We can also advise you in regard to a simple, cost effective maintenance & safety routine.
