The FiftyTwoTwelve bicycle maintenance and repair service will help you to avoid the long wait times and the difficulty in getting the time off to drop a bike in for servicing at a bike shop.
I decided to start up my own dedicated business to offer fast turnaround times, quality repairs, and a helpful, can-do attitude
As a qualified Cytech Level 2 mechanic and coupled with years of experience building, servicing and repairing bikes, I know how important it is to get the job done right, first time.
So, if you need a replacement chain fitting new gear cabling, a full service or an urgent repair, call, text or email and we can make arrangements to get you back cycling as quick as possible
How it works
Following contact from yourself I arrange to come to you, assess the bike and then take it back to my workshop. Sometimes it may be possible to make a repair or complete a job on-site thus negating the need to take the bike away.
This will be arranged at your convenience, at a time of your choosing, even out of normal shop hours.
An estimate is of identified work will be given. Occasionally, however, further issues can come to light but you will always be informed before extra work is carried out.
Once the bike is repaired it will be returned to you at an agreed time to suit.
Fix Your Bike Voucher Scheme
The Fix your Bike Voucher Scheme has been set up to encourage more people to embrace cycling, boost the number of commuting and leisure trips, and promote an alternative to public transport, while social distancing measures are in place.
It also aims to help reduce the number of short journeys made by private cars.
The Fix your Bike Voucher Scheme allows members of the public to receive a voucher worth up to £50 towards the cost of repairing a bike.
The vouchers can only be used with bike repair businesses like FiftyTwoTwelve that are registered for the scheme.
For details on the governments voucher scheme click this link:
The scheme is open to anyone in England who has an unused cycle in need of a repair.
However, as there are a limited number of vouchers available, please consider the needs of others before applying for a voucher and do not delay making planned repairs outside of the scheme should your circumstances allow it.
Vouchers can only be used with bike repairers or mechanics that are registered for the scheme in England, and up to two vouchers can be claimed per household.
A full list of terms and conditions and eligibility criteria is provided when you register.
How to apply
The Fix Your Bike Voucher scheme website was taken offline by the Energy Saving Trust following high levels of interest.
Vouchers are being released gradually to reflect the capacity of cycle repairers signed up to the scheme and more will be available soon.
