Frame Repairs

Just badly designed - this will never clamp tight and now it has cracked the tube.

We can do all types of frame repairs, anything from small braze ons to major crash repairs and even custom frame building. If you have a job you think we might be able to help you with, just send us a clear picture and an estimate of how old the frame is and the kind of use it has had. A look at the pictures on the left might give you an idea of what is possible (and what isn't!).

Our specialities are crash repairs and customisation jobs such as replacing drop-outs and brazing on cable guides and other small fittings. We can also do special customisation jobs and resprays.

We are now also offering repairs to aluminium. Aluminium has very different characteristics to steel and requires a different set of tools and techniques. We find we can get good results by adding bracing pieces to take the strain off the original failure point. We can also do simple repairs to carbon.

This a guide to prices - some jobs are more complicated than usual and we will price accordingly. There is a minimum charge of £40.
