Why choose iFixCycles?

  • Transport hassles? – remove the bother of taking your bikes into town to be serviced/repaired. No more taking the bike to the bike shop, iFixCycles comes to you.
  • Time pressed- busy lifestyle? – I operate at your convenience – at a time & place that suits you.
  • Can’t see your pride and joy or who’s working on it? – Meet the person who will be working on your bike and discuss any concerns.

iFixCycles is a Mobile Bicycle Repair Service run by a City & Guilds trained & qualified mechanic. All work is by appointment at an agreed time and place. If possible, work is completed on site, be that at home, work, or in an emergency, at the roadside. Work that cannot be completed on site is taken back to the workshop, repaired and returned at a time convenient to you the customer.

I cover all cycle maintenance and repair, from a simple puncture repair to a full rebuild on any make or model of bike. I work on all types of bikes, be that road, mountain, kids and recreational bikes.

The aim of iFixCycles is to provide a convenient, reliable and competitively priced mobile bicycle repair service in Angus and the surrounding area.

  • Firstly I’ll discuss with you what your requirements are and what service/repair would be most suitable.
  • I’ll then arrange a time to come to you to either work on site or collect the cycle.
  • If anything else needs attention I’ll contact you prior to any work being done or any parts being fitted – you are in control of the costs – not me.
  • I’ll then arrange a suitable time and place to return the cycle as long as someone is in to take the bike, as I’ll need payment on return of the bike. ( Cash, cheque or BACS)
  • I will try to get your bike back within 48hrs but may need to order parts not in stock which may mean some work will take a little longer.

About

 

My name is Scott Davidson and I own and run iFixCycles.

I have been passionate about cycling (touring, road & MTB) and cycle maintenance for over 30 years. Creating iFixCycles has allowed me the opportunity to develop this passion into a business.

I have a Certificate of Attainment in Cycle Mechanics which includes the City and Guilds level 2 cycle mechanics qualification from the renowned Bike Inn training school in Spalding.

I live in Forfar, but iFixCycles operates throughout Angus, Dundee and the North Fife coast.

Services & Prices

BIKE SERVICING & REPAIR PRICES

Like any piece of equipment, it is important to keep your bike in a good working condition. Getting your bike serviced not only does that, but it can also highlight any potential problems before they cause issues which could result in additional cost, or you being let down when you are out on your bike .

I offer 3 fixed price services below, but also offer a full range of specific bike repairs or individual component servicing from a simple puncture repair to a full custom bike build.
