Bike Servicing

At Alpine Bikes we have been caring for our customers’ bikes for over twenty five years and in that time have developed a reputation for excellence. Our services are based around the most common needs of our customers, and all work is undertaken only after a thorough inspection and confirmation of costs with the customer. Work is carried out by qualified, experienced mechanics to industry standards so you can ride in the knowledge your bike has been tuned to perfect working order.

For more information, contact or visit your local store and our friendly staff will be able to advise you.

COVID 19 UPDATE: For the protection of staff and customers, we have put in place some requirements for servicing:

  • • Bikes must be booked for servicing prior to arriving at store. Please contact the store via phone first to arrange a time and date for dropping off your bike.
  • • We will not accept any repairs into the shop that have not been booked in advance.
  • Bikes must be in a clean condition when being brought into store.
  • • When dropping the bike off, the customer should place the bike in designated isolation zone for the mechanic to inspect.
  • • Before any work is started, every bike will be disinfected.
  • • Upon completion of work, customers will be called to advise and arrange suitable time for collection. Payment can be made as normal in-store at screened checkout.
  • Contact Aberdeen Store on 01224 211455 & Edinburgh Store on 0131 225 3286

The Bronze Service is like a checkup. We make sure everything is running properly and tune it up if necessary, inspect for damage, and point out anything that could cause an issue when riding. Depending on how much you use your bike, a service like this would be suitable every 3 - 6 months. If your bike has been in storage for a long time, or has been ridden a lot, you should consider a Silver or Gold service. A Bronze Service includes:

  • • Full safety check
