Welcome to bikemonkey.
We are an authentic, local and independent business serving the city of Brighton & Hove and the surrounding areas. We want to help you keep your bicycle maintained and repaired in a prompt, inexpensive and convenient manner! We're approaching our first birthday and have a huge number of satisfied customers who trust us to carry out their routine (and emergency!) maintenance because we're different.
What we do
We come to your home or work, listen to any problems you have had, collect your bicycle then work our magic and return it to you at a convenient time and place, repaired/serviced and ready for action! We don't operate expensive retail premises so we don't have to charge what our competitors charge, we're fanatical about customer service (see our feedback page) and with 30 years of experience in all things bicycle there's not much we haven't yet had to deal with..
Often the laborious process of getting your sick or tired bike into the car and into town to the bike shop can be a nuisance. If you get the bikemonkey around you can avoid this unnecessary fuss, you will always get a polite and genuine greeting (which many other shops would benefit from no doubt!). We work on everything from an old banger (call it vintage!) to a shiny carbon top of the line road machine. We don't pick and choose, and we aren't afraid of elbow grease, that's what the bikemonkey likes best! You will save precious time and hard-earned money in the process, and we genuinely hope that like our other regular customers new and old, you enjoy the bikemonkey experience.
We carry out tube replacements around the city, on bicycles and kids buggies, we also offer a "build from the box" service if you've taken advantage of an internet price but want the same local service that you would get from your dealer (only more convenient!)
We can even "pimp your ride" by customizing, powder coating to your choice of colour, adding or removing gears, style of handlebars etc. If your faithful friend has been with you for years but you want to transform or revive the look and feel of it, we can do it! We will quote you a competitive price and lead time and leave the rest to us.
Payment options are cash, cheque or bank transfer and all work is guaranteed for three months, and those bikemonkeys are fully insured for your peace of mind
Because we're passionate about the bikemonkey experience, in addition to your statutory rights the BikeMonkey Promise applies to all of our work:
If you're not delighted with our work we return and rework until you are!
