Was looking for a quick check for my bike... At the moment Halfords is doing a free one. It's not a comprehensive one, but if you don't have major complaints, it's great to make sure that your bike is safe to ride.

The check covers the following areas:
- The handlebars
- The wheels, tyres, and hubs
- The drivetrain: the gears, chain, and bottom bracket
- The brakes
- The saddle

You can also check if your council does Dr. Bike events, but they only happen once or twice a month (if at all).

I would imagine it's a free check and any work would be chargeable.
Similar to how some garages offer a "free" MOT, but then find heaps wrong with your motor.

I wouldn't let any Halfords employee touch a bike. They are likely to ruin it.

Well, some might not (how do you tell) but I wouldn't take that chance either.

You may as well take your bike to your local Indian takeaway, the chef in there will likely be a better bike mechanic than your average Halfords employee.

No, but they might check the brakes.

Echo the comments on trusting halfords. Most local bike shops would have a quick look at tell you what needs done.

Most people with a pair of eyes could check these things... It would take more effort to take the bike to Halfords than to just spend 5 minutes checking it yourself.

Can also cook you a decent curry whilst you get your bike fixed.:D

Worst place to take your bike for servicing!
