Bicycle Servicing

After your initial service, MC recommends a major service at least each year, and checkups during the year. This will of course depend on how much you ride, and your typical riding conditions. But remember, prevention through regular servicing is better than the expensive cure later.

Your first service

MC offers a free first service on bikes we sell to you. Your first service should be booked in after you ride your new bike in for a few months, to allow parts to settle and you to get used to the feel of your new bike. It is after this time getting used to your bike, that you may also want some things adjusted for a better fit. A thorough check and adjustment of your bike is extra important at this early stage.

Regular Servicing

After your initial service, MC recommends a major service at least each year, and checkups during the year. This will of course depend on how much you ride, and your typical riding conditions. But remember, prevention through regular servicing is better than the expensive cure later.

Bike wash for dirty bikes

MC features a dedicated bike wash facility. Our bike wash service option is not a regular wipe-down. This is a complete bike soap wash and dry in our dedicated on-site bike wash facility.

Our facility is specially designed and features water pressure that is safe for your bike. Our facility and process uses warm water, soap, and bike-safe water pressure cleaning. It is safe for all types of bikes and it is the best way to clean your bike frame, brakes, derailleur and chain.

 

When do you drop-off and collect your bike?

We will need your bike onsite for it to be serviced.

You can take the hassle out with out Service Valet pickup and drop-off, which can be scheduled when you make you service booking online. Otherwise, please ensure your bike is at MC the day before your service is booked, and picked up no later than the following day.

Bike Fitting

It doesn't have to hurt.

At MC in the privacy and comfort of our upstairs lounge, we offer a range of professional bike fitting options.

Whether you're looking for the basics or a full performance & custom setup with our Calfee fitting equipment, we have you covered.

MC Service Valet

Take the hassle out of servicing - we can pick-up from your home/office, service in our workshop, and drop-back same day. MC Bike Service Valet is not a mobile workshop, as all work is completed in our fully featured workshop.

Standard rates apply for services within Eastern suburbs and Sydney CBD. Surcharge may apply outside these areas.
