Cycle repair for those who need it most from Element67
The Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme will help fix flat tyres, loose brakes and clunky gears to get folk pedalling again.
Finances are tight for many people at the moment, so we know it can be difficult to pay for essential bike repairs.
If you need a helping hand to get your bike into shape, this scheme provides free repair and maintenance work up to the value of £50 for standard bikes and up to £100 for non-standard cycles.
Whether you’ve got an old bike in the shed that needs attention – or the one you’re riding requires some care you can an drop your bike to the Element67 mechanic to get your bike repaired, safe and back in use.
It’s a simple process – just contact your nearest participating bike shop or mechanic and get your repair booked in. Remember to tell them you want to make a booking under the Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme
All cycles are welcome in the scheme including adults’ and children’s bikes, e-bikes and non-standard cycles like trikes, tandems, cargo bikes and recumbents. Manual wheelchairs can also be repaired through the scheme.
To book your space just call or email us and we can do the rest.
Basic service and essential mechanical repairs are covered by the scheme i.e. repairs that are necessary to make the cycle roadworthy and fit for purpose. We would expect that £50 should cover at least what is known as a Bronze service (e.g. frame and forks wiped down and checked for alignment; gears and brakes adjusted; chain checked and lubricated; wheels and tyres inspected for wear; full safety check).
The following repairs/transactions are NOT covered by the scheme:
A sale of replacement parts without any repair work
Replacement or upgrade of existing safe and roadworthy components
Replacement or repair of removeable lighting accessories
Using the £50 to contribute to the purchase of cycles or accessories
Any repairs to e-bike electronic units.
