Bike build Options

email:rule4cycles@gmail.com
Many people are now buying bikes by Mail order, from internet websites, from Ebay or from non-specialist shops and find themselves unhappy to build the bike up safely for themselves. Others want to have a totally bespoke bike built up from a new frame and separately sourced parts. For these people we offer a range of bike assembly and building services the prices quoted are for general 'builds' and may vary depending on the time to actually complete the job and do not include a collection and return costs.
