    The Workshop

    IN THE ENGINE ROOM

    At Swift we know the beating heart of every great bike shop is a great Workshop!

    Swift has one of the busiest workshops in the city. Our prices are some of the very lowest, and our mechanics are some of the most experienced. We try to return all service jobs on the day, and carry a deep stock of road bike spares in order to help achieve that. We're set up to service all road and hybrid bikes.

    Servicing is strictly on a pre-booked basis. Call 0207 377 0502 to book in to the workshop!

    SAME DAY SERVICING

    We know how painful it can be to be stuck without your bike! Our mechanics service bikes daily between 10am and 6pm. In order for us guarantee your bike will be ready to ride for you at the end of the day, we ask that bikes are dropped no later than 12 noon on the day of your service!

    Mechanic

    A lover of the sport, Steev has run and wrenched for his own racing teams in the past including the Rapha women's racing team. He's our resident expert with all things electronic, as well have having built more high-end road and triathlon bikes in the past 2 years than almost any man alive. We'd list Steevs bikes here, but we've got a capacity limit for the website hosting. Suffice to say, it's a lot...

    Workshop Manager

    With over 10 years in the bike industry, Al has worked at the most prestigious bike shops in and around London. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of bicycle componentry, compatibility and, frankly, just making things work! Most likely, whatever the issue with your bike he will have encountered and fixed it many times over. For weather reports Al's almost as good at the Met Office. If he's riding his custom Titanium Seven road bike it'll be a lovely day. If he's on his Surly with full mudguards... better pack a rain jacket.
