Servicing A Bicycle

Like most mechanical machines regular maintenance is better than waiting for something to fail as I’m sure the honourable Mr Murphy would indicate that failure will occur at the most inconvenient time.

All new bike purchased from Flemington Cycles receive free basic service for the first two years.
