Bicycle Servicing

We provide a wide range of service options for your bike from a full strip-down and rebuild to simply repairing a puncture. We also build, true and repair wheel sets.

Bike Box Hire

We can hire or sell you the VeloVault – the best, easiest-to-use and most versatile bike box. We discount packing if you have your bike serviced at the same time.

Spares & Accessories

We’re happy to supply parts and accessories should you want to tackle a job yourself. We stock tubes, chains, cables, pulley wheels, brake pads, bottom brackets etc.

Who we are

Established in 2008, we’re probably the Lancaster area’s best kept secret as most of our work comes via word of mouth. The Cycle Mechanic has been servicing bicycles for over 50 years and has been operating this business for over 12 years. The Cycle Mechanic is a City & Guilds Qualified Bicycle Mechanic and Workplace Trainer & Assessor.

What we do

We specialise in working on mid to top end road bikes such as the types of bikes pictured above. If you’re serious about triathlon, road racing, time trials, sportives, cyclo cross, gravel riding or touring then we can help. This is what we do day in, day out – keeping keen and competitive cyclists on the road.

How we do it

We work on a strict appointment basis so we can give you and your bike our undivided attention. Our fully fitted workshop uses pro quality tools and equipment and we use genuine parts from Campagnolo, Rotor, Shimano and SRAM to name a few. We have accounts with most major distributors so can obtain parts we don’t stock.

Where we do it

The Cycle Mechanic is workshop based, and for good reason. We have tools and equipment you can’t carry in a van. Our bioremedial parts washer alone would almost fill a typical van! We are based in the Lune Valley at Brookhouse close to Cycle Route 69 and 90.

Get in touch

We are closed right now but you can call and leave a message or drop us an e-mail. If you have an out of hours emergency, we’ll do our best to get back to you as soon as we can.

What our customers say

This is why we’re Lancaster’s best kept secret.

This was the first occasion I have used Steve at The Cycle Mechanic and he is very professional, efficient and engaging. The fee for the work was very reasonable for servicing my Dolan road bike. Excellent all round.

I have used Steve on a number of occasions and find him to be a great mechanic who you can talk to and discuss issues with your bike and he will give honest feedback, on this occasion he sorted my headset when i could hear a noise coming from it, discussed options and gave advice. Checked bike over and replaced parts that only needed to be replaced.

Steve has been looking after my road bike and gravel/CX bikes for a number of years now. He is extremely thorough, reasonably priced and provides very good interactive communication throughout the service/repair process. I regularly recommend Steve's services to friends in the area.

5AM on a dark, cold Saturday morning not 20 seconds into The Way Of The Roses cycle and my mates chain snaps.In a blind panic we make the chain worse with our attempts to fix it and with nowhere open for many hours we chanced our arm and ring around local bike shops and leave messages.Having already checked out of our airbnb and posted the keys back we had nowhere to go and all the time to get there.To our surprise the Cycle Mechanic rang us back and drove out to us even though he doesn't normally do call outs.The chain was on and gears checked in no time, we even got some info on the route which very helpful indeed!We can't thank the cycle mechanic enough for his help and professionalism !

I had a seized bearing and slightly off dish in my training wheels. All sorted in no time at all. Extremely reasonably priced, very friendly service, even showed me what would be involved in doing the job myself (turns out, it needs more than a rubber mallet...!). I will be back!

A massive thanks to The Cycle Mechanic for checking my bike this morning. After an email at stupid o’clock this morning (4:38 am) worrying about my bike chain, I couldn’t believe he’d replied by 6am and was looking at my bike by 7am! An unbelievable service provision in my hour of need and cannot speak highly enough of Steve and his professional service. I can now fly my bike to the event with peace of mind.

Thank you Steve for a really superb job building my new bike for me. I had a vision of what I wanted this bike to be and you turned it into reality! Your service was excellent from initial contact to collecting the finished bike, friendly, knowledgeable, great communication and most importantly the work you did was top notch. I couldn’t have asked for any more, you exceeded my expectations and the price you charged was very reasonable. I will certainly use you again when I need a bike mechanic and I would recommend your service to anyone. Thanks again!
