Have you heard about the Governments ‘Fix Your Bike Voucher Scheme’? The full details of the scheme can be found here:
…..but a far more readable update is here:
Essentially, register for a voucher and use it towards the cost of making sure your bike is roadworthy.
The scheme is there to get you up and running, not to subsidise an upgrade to the latest carbon wheels or whizzy gears.
I have just (28 July) registered as an Authorised Repairer and will post further updates in the coming days
