Free Bike Check
Pre Bike Service Check
Before any cycle service or repair we'll check your bike for free at any local Halfords store. This includes checking for wear, damage and ensuring your bike is safe to ride.
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 bike check to spot any problems before they develop into bigger ones. We will check all bikes inclcuding all kids and adults bikes and types such as full suspension mountain bikes or electric bikes.
What do we check?
With our free Halfords bike check we inspect 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
We carry out what is called an ‘M-check’ on the above areas, checking the bike thoroughly from top to bottom and assessing all 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.
Ask in store for more details about our individual Services, or our combined 1-year or 3-year Service bundles (CycleCare).
