Are older bikes worth repairing?
Of course. There’s no reason to give up on your old bike as soon as something goes wrong with it. Old bikes are also worth repairing because it is a more cost-effective, sustainable and rewarding option. We have helped many of our customers, such as those who have dusted off their old trusty bikes that haven’t been used for a number of years, with great results.
As bike mechanics, we see many different wear issues with older bikes, such as levers, wheels/rims, tyres, spokes, brake pads and rusty chains, just to name a few. We try to repair and salvage what we can, paying respect to the bike and its original design features. Alternatively, you can always have a new one assembled if it’s not possible to bring your old bike back to top form.
