We pride ourselves on our attention to detail in the workshop – and do not compromise on the quality of our work, ever. All our mechanics are highly trained and fussy individuals and we are proud to be recognised as both a Shimano Service Centre and a Campagnolo Pro Shop (one of only a handful in the country and the longest running of any!).

Not only that, but our head mechanic Scott was voted Britain’s Best Bike Mechanic in 2018 – through a combination of customer voting and then a day where he was put through his paces and assessed at one of the UK’s main training facilities. We’re happy to assess any bike, free of charge, and then let you know what the work will cost.

We know that every bike is different and everyone has different needs so we can also tailor our service packages with added extras to suit your requirements.

Booking and storage…

Because of the size of our premises, our workshop operates on a strict booking in system. Therefore if you want to get your bike booked in please call us on 01285 851946 to arrange a slot.

We cannot store bikes for long, bikes can only be dropped off at the beginning of the week they are scheduled to be worked on, or the Saturday before at the earliest.

We also asked that completed work is collected as promptly as possible and sadly have to charge a storage charge of £2.50 per day that the bike is with us after it’s agreed collection date.


Mobile workshop coverage…

Our mobile workshop covers a large area of the Cotswolds, taking in Gloucestershire, West Oxfordshire and Wiltshire! Simply give us a call on 01285 851946 or email sales@performancecycles.co.uk and we can get you booked in. We just need your contact details, bike description and postcode.

Our mobile workshop is a fully equipped van – and unlike most we don’t work on your pride and joy in the rain under our tailgate!! Instead, your bike is worked on by our technician inside in the dry and in the warm.

We carry a full set of tools to take on all work along with a large selection of spares, that’s then fully backed up by the shop in Poulton.


T’s & C’s…

All prices quoted are for labour costs only and do not include any parts. Added extras are just that, they are at reduced costs as part of a service.

A £10 surcharge is applied for fitting supplied parts not purchased from us.

Every bike that comes through the workshop is subject to a minimum of a Bronze service so that we can be sure it is safe to ride when it leaves us.
