If you feel that someone with 2 weeks experience who's mission is to up-sell you doing the work then go for it. One of my friends took his bike there for a service and they even replaced the grips and charged him extra. He liked the grips he had and hated the new ones and had to argue to get them to take them off and not charge him. They said they had to change them because they were worn and it was store policy to ensure his safety.

Not heard many favourable reviews of halfords bike services. Actually, I haven't heard any. Much like their car services. Maybe just stick to getting your £45 Apollo fixed at halfords.

£50 normal price seriously ? for say a £200 bicycle.. Thats like buying a car for £10000 and spending £2500 on a service. Do it yourself or get a friend whose into bikes to do it for you.

or just go to an independent, someone on here mentioned in the last post that they used to have well qualified cycle machanics when it was the bikehut but now its just Jimmy with a spanner.

If you value your bike don't let Halfords anywhere near it. Nobody has ever had a good word to say about their cycle services, quite the opposite in fact. You'd be just as well taking it to the local comprehensive school and asking a random spotty youth to do it.

Local bike shop all the way, wouldn't touch this with a bargepole

Not like that at all.
Most decent services will cost more, especially if you want the bottom bracket services and the other bearings, rims trued etc

If you need to take your bike anywhere for a service you shouldn't be allowed to ride a bike!
#9
Not rocket science to service a bike yourself.

All about having the right tools for the job, if you have them then bike maintenance really is very easy. There's not much to it at all and endless walk through guides on you tube from far better mechanics than halfords usual standards.

I think it's a fair point, remember this won't include any parts, if it's just a basic service you should be able to do this yourself with basic tools.

What a ridiculous statement! Kind of like saying if you can't service a car you shouldn't be allowed to drive. Not everyone has the time or the tools to do this, and would much rather a professional look over it. For something what doesn't cost the world could save you a serious injury.

so if you're being literal no young children can learn to ride unless they have mastered the basic elements of servicing their tiny bike?

I wont allow my 3 year old on his Apollo fire chief bike until he has mastered the basics of bottom bracket removal and wheel alignment by spoke tensioning.
He's 100% cool with hydraulic disc brakes but sadly his fire chief dosnt have them.

Bought a Carerra two months ago. All was fine until the 6 week free service. Four visits over 3 days and still not rectified their damage; tore the saddle, wore out the saddle bolt; misaligned the front derailleur causing the gears to grind into the metal work; cycle covered in grease etc.
Wont ever use Halfords cowboy outfit again. You kind of expect them to be atleast half decent give their size and history.

I wasn't suggesting children should service their own bikes. That's what dads are for. To teach them.
You can't compare servicing a bike to a car, captain, that's just being silly. We're not talking about stripping the bike down, we're just on about checking a few bolts are tight and making adjustment to brakes. It's hardly rocket science.
If you find it difficult, come on, I'll show you. ;)

Some of the comments on here really show what idiots their authors are!!!!

Bike maintenance is still somewhat difficult and awkward even with the right tools. Removing and installing a press fit BB, facing a BB, upgrading the firmware on your EPS/Di2 etc, truing a wheel (do it wrong and you can ruin a £1000 rim), tensioning spokes, installing cables on modern aero bikes etc!!!!

The tools cost a fortune too if you want to be able to service it yourself fully.
So many different BB tools, cassette tool, chain whip, hex keys, torque wrench, chain tool, pliers, cable cutters, spoke tool, drivers (Japanese for indexing) etc

You also need grease, lube, fibre grip etc

(all depend on your bike).

Some branches are very good some are poor. I recommend the Guildford branch. I have also had good service from a local bike shop and very good service (& great value) from another local bike shop.
