Mechanics for hire

Show your commitment to sustainable transport and healthy lifestyles by hiring our mechanics for your workplace or event.

Here’s how it works:

You book a mechanic for your event, group, workplace or school. We will arrive towing a trailer of spare parts and tools, set up stall and provide either:

  • Regular repair service – we will service the bikes of the cyclists who roll up


  • DIY repair service – we will help cyclists fix their own bikes (because it’s all about empowerment and spreading the skills, right?)

Both services include a diagnosis, safety check and any repairs which can be completed on site. If the bike needs more serious work and attention than is possible on the spot, we will recommend bringing it along to one of our DIY open workshop sessions at our fully kitted-out workshop in central Oxford or taking it to one of Oxford’s independent bike shops.

We’re happy to work anywhere in the city of Oxford, for gigs further afield give us a call and we’ll see what can be arranged.

Here’s what it costs:

£65 per hour with a minimum booking of 4 consecutive hours (we offer a discount on this rate for community groups and not-for-profits, get in touch if this is you!). This price includes any minor parts used (cables, brake blocks and the like). Predicting a busy event? No problem, we can send a second mechanic for a flat fee of £65.

These are some of the organisations we’ve worked with:

We chose Broken Spoke for the repair and maintenance of our bicycles as they provide a cost effective and on-site service. They did an amazing job in renovating our well used bikes, giving them a new lease of life. I would not hesitate to recommend their service.The Careers Service, University of Oxford

The Broken Spoke cycle mechanic was superb, she was kept very busy; she is a very competent mechanic and a good ambassador for cycling.Area Manager, Pure Office LTD
