Posted on: 9th May 2016 3:04 AM    Quote and Reply

Hi all, I got a roadie and want to do a full servicing. I live at north area (Woodlands), I found that full servicing price is range from $120-150 here, issit reasonable price? (coz I feel it is quite expensive)

Can recommend any bike shop that do full service with less than $100 near north area? CCK, Sembawang, Yishun also can.

Thanks all.

If they strip it all down and clean it all up and put it all back together $120 to $150 is not ridiculous for 3 or 4 hours work in my opinion, it only works out at $30+ per hour. Given the ludicrous cost of shop space and the like in SG it is OK.

It is is worth spending $400 to 500 ish and getting yourself a repair stand and some tools and learning how to do it yourself, we have 6 bikes in our house. My tools paid for themselves within 6 months, I also get plenty of free beers for loaning them out and helping buddies maintain or upgrade their bikes.

Its around that price. By the way, they also replace ALL your bowen cables. hence if u see it that way its about  $80 (workmanship, time & bike washing) + $70 (cables, lubrication & bike cleaner ). still pretty good vs u spend on those indidviual stuff.

of course some shops even offer higher price which includes wheel hub bearing servicing & trueing for both wheels

Usually/normally/typically does not include free cable changes for full servicings. Yes, then pay extra fees for it as they are additional cost.
