Internal Gear Hub Service and Repair – Courier service or drop-off

Service and repair of your internal gear hub cycle. Rear gear hubs such as the Sturmey-Archer range, Nexus and Alfine from Shimano and the Speedhub from Rohloff, require minimal maintenance compared to other multi-gear designs. This does not however mean they require zero maintenance. Neglect will reduce their efficiency and eventually lead to failure. Regular servicing will maintain your hubs high efficiency and will prevent more costly repairs down the line. Servicing can normally be done same day if booked, repairs may take longer. Posting your wheel or hub is also an option via standard couriers. You remove your wheel and post it to me, I will then ship it back to you once complete. Shipping costs depend on wheel size. There is a 20% discount on hub servicing if done at the same time as a bike service.
