Free Bike Check

It goes without saying that your safety is essential, at Halfords we pride ourselves on knowing how to keep your bike in top condition. Like any mode of transport your bike needs to be looked after and regularly checked for wear and tear. That's where we come in!

Our expertly trained bike mechanics can provide you with a free 32 point bike check to spot any problems before they develop into bigger ones. We will check all bikes, kids and adults, of any size and discipline.

What do we check?

With our free Halfords bike check we inspect 32 points, across all key areas of your bike. These include:

  • Frame, Saddle & Handlebar
  • Wheels; including Tyres, Rims, Spokes and Hubs
  • Brake system; including Levers, Calipers, Pads and Cables / Hoses
  • Drivetrain; including Gears, Levers, Chain, Bottom Bracket, Cranks and Cables

What happens?

We carry out what is called an ?M-check? on the above areas, checking the bike thoroughly from top to bottom and assessing all 32 elements for signs of wear, damage or adjustment requirements.

This will either confirm that your bike is in good condition to continue riding, or it will determine if any maintenance or service is required in order to maintain safe and efficient cycling. If we spot a problem that requires a service we can book your bike in so it can be repaired by one of our fully qualified mechanics, at a time to suit you.
