We endeavour to complete all jobs as quickly as we can and keep you informed should issues arise. Bikes requiring race support or preparation for a holiday should be in at least two weeks before your event or trip. We always phone when work is complete and tested. No work is carried out without your permission.

Discount is applied to all bikes purchased from us (original owner only). A ROZONE bike clean can be added for £20 (full drivetrain degrease included).
Save money and bring your bike in clean! Bikes should be collected within two weeks from job completion (we charge for bikes stored longer than this unless otherwise arranged). Please keep all paperwork and receipts. These will be required for warranty work.

To maintain warranty and safety, authorised suspension servicing is essential. As an official Fox and Rock Shox premier dealer, Cyclehighlands gets priority servicing with the brands UK service centres. This "full service“ option is the only way to detect faults and maintain warranty and is strongly recommended over a simple lower leg only service. Lower leg/basic service functions and set up we can carry out at the recommended intervals from our Tech Support Unit here in Ballater.
Bike set up can take time but its time well spent. From suspension to stem length we don’t stop until we have a bike set up correctly. Our aftersales commitment means you can revisit as many times as is required , usually at no extra cost. Gadgets like “ ShockWiz” can be hired for out on the trail shock set up and saddles from FABRIC can often be an answer for comfort. If you’ve purchased a bike somewhere else and you are having comfort issues - then give us call to make an appointment and our experienced team will do all they can to help.
