At The Ark Cycles, our passion for cycling is unrivaled. We love nothing more than to match our customers' expectations by returning them to the roads and trails as quickly as we can. When you bring your bike to us you won’t pay a penny until we have given you a free estimate and safety check of your bike with an estimate of repair. We offer a range of service levels to suit your needs.
WE CUSTOM BUILD
Our mechanics will safety check your bicycle with the headset, bottom bracket and hubs checked and adjusted. We also check the adjustment of brakes and gears. All nuts and bolts are checked and torqued, tyres correctly inflated and chains lubricated.
Our bronze service makes sure your bike is road safe and is intended for bikes in good condition requiring minor adjustments.
Everything from the bronze service plus cassette, chain, chain set, front derailleur and rear derailleur removed, degreased and lubricated. Frame and fork wiped down and checked for alignment. Wheels removed from frame and trued in the wheel jig. This service is more in-depth than the bronze and we recommend it if parts are showing signs of wear and are not operating properly.
Everything from the silver service plus all components are removed, cleaned and inspected. Bottom bracket, hubs and headset bearings are cleaned, inspected and re-greased where necessary. Frame and fork are cleaned and inspected for damage and alignment.
Everything from the gold service plus wax and polish, Di2 groupset updated and customized upon request, fresh brake bleed if required. This top tier platinum service is for bikes that include electronic group sets, hydraulic brakes or are specific time trial bikes.
