The concept was established in 2007,then after a short period at a Certini Bicycles Ltd,i moved into the unit, BikewiseSW is built on quality and understanding the needs of today's busy society.
We here at BikeWiseSW will carry out servicing, repairs and any bike related work on your cycle.
Bicycles have been a passion of mine from a very young age, a recent phenomenon is the BSO Bike Shaped Object, we Do Not work on these due to basic economics.
Until 2016 I was part of the team at Specialized Concept Store Plymouth, that was an interesting 6 years, Specialized were always great with training at UK HQ.
I feel happier being able to offer a more personal service to the people of Plymouth and surrounding areas, with customers coming from all over Devon and Cornwall.
I started in the trade in 1988, I served my apprenticeship and was taught my trade by an ex-RAF engineer in Plymouth's leading cycle shop, Devon Cycles and that's where my passion was fed and turned into an unstoppable lust for all things BICYCLE!
When I am not servicing or repairing bicycles, I like to spend my leisure time between road riding, mountain biking and furthering my bicycle and product knowledge , be it on my own or with various groups of like minded people who cycle.
Because we are independently owned we offer unbiased advice. As more and more of you are finding the internet for parts and new bikes, we are happy for customers to send their purchases directly to the workshop.
We have over 30yrs bicycle engineering experience here at BikewieSW, from the very first days of rigid MTB sales and service to today's Bluetooth Di2 equipped road and mountain bikes, not forgetting all the children's bikes and most importantly our commuters!
We are based in the Northern Corridor aiming our pre-arranged same day turnaround at Derriford Hospital and the surrounding businesses for you busy people.
BikeWiseSW, we specialise in pretty much everything bicycle related, I will not 'tyre' you with a list, bicycle repairs, servicing, wheel building, suspension serving, children's bikes , etc...
At BikeWiseSW we do not discriminate brands or point of purchase, be it from ourselves, your local bike shop (LBS) or The Internet, we will service or fit all bikes or parts.
Here are our prices for some common workshop jobs. Just because it isn’t on this list doesn’t mean we don’t do it.
Whatever it is, please ask, we want to help and share cycling passion.
We do our very best to stick to these prices, but sometimes a job turns out to be more difficult than anticipated and we need to add a little for labour to cover the extra time. This is charged at £35 per hour. We’ll check with you before doing the extra work or supplying extra parts so that you can say no if you want.
