Servicing and Repair

True North Cycle Hub based in Upper Hulme near Leek in the Peak District offering professional bicycle servicing and repair for all types of bike. 

Here at our Cycle Hub we’d like to think our years of maintaining, servicing our own bikes for riding and racing alongside our qualified Cytech qualified technicians can help you with a more individual and specialist repair service.

What makes us different to majority of other bike shops is our relaxed open shop/workshop, so, if you have time call in for a coffee or brew, you can watch us work on your bicycle or chat with us for some advice or to see us for advice on your next new bike or parts and spares. 

Not only can we service your bike professionally and quickly, give you first-hand advice but we also offer a variety of specialist options, including custom wheel building, custom frame and bike building, fork and shock servicing, and professional advice on set up and positioning.

At our E-Bike Service Centre, we are fully authorised to diagnose, service and repair most types of e-bike systems including Bosch, Shimano Steps, Yamaha, and TQ. Our certified E-Bike technicians are here to help, whether it’s a software update, full service or custom build. Here at the Hub we not only repair e-bikes, we ride, hire and race them so we understand their complexities and also their issues and can easily diagnose any current and potential problem

Suspension Service*

We believe its best to stick to what you are good at, so we like to leave suspension to Rick at Slick and Slide as he is one of the best. He looks after all our own race bike suspension servicing and he has invested in every single specialist tool you need to do the job properly. As suspension servicing is evolving and ever increasingly complicated, Slick and Slide are an authorised Cane Creek and Fox service centre independently owned that provides servicing for mountain bike forks and rear shocks from manufacturers such as Rock Shox and Fox Racing.

* We only offer suspension service with one of own service plans S-2 and above.

Important Info

To ensure we can turn your bike around as quickly as possible we ask that your bike is brought to us in a reasonably clean condition, bikes that are overly dirty will need to be cleaned at an additional charge of £15.

Our workshop is incredibly busy and we need our storage space in order to continue to be able to offer great service. We ask that bikes are collected within a timely manner.

When new parts are needed to complete a job or service we’ll agree the cost with you before we carry out the work. Also please bear in mind that bikes are complex machines, some jobs may cost a little more depending on configuration and specification. We’ll let you know in advance if that’s the case.
