I don’t do a one-price-fits-all as every bike tends to be different.
I rather see the bike and give you my best indication of price and time.
But here are a few prices based on past experience.

A note on components.
There is also a huge price difference between basic items and top end items.
I’ll always try and give you a few options.
Example: Basic Bulk Brake Block at £2.50 a pair to £35 for a top brand high performance pair.
(Note: I’m generally happy to fit your supplied components for labour only.)
Additionally, jobs are often considerably quicker on a well serviced bike vs a neglected bike.
Example: a seized seatpost – I can’t even get the bike into the work stand.
However, you can take comfort in that I work quickly but with care and high personal integrity, invest heavily in professional workshop grade tools, use quality stainless steel cables, quality professional greases and oils and charge a very fair rate of £25 per hour.
A most common pricing example:
To fix a puncture on a standard wheel £9 = new inner tube (~£3.50) + labour (£5)
Estimates – which are usually free and are just that – an estimate – can only be given on seeing the bike and the problem and then some problems only reveal themselves as you get into the work.
