Welcome to Front Bike Repair!

Bournemouth's seafront based mobile bike repair service. 

Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.
— H.G. Wells

We are a professional team of bike maintenance specialists based out of our bike hire centre on Bournemouth beach (see for more). We provide an optional free collect and delivery service for bike repair in the Bournemouth area. Just call up to arrange a time that's convenient for you, and we will come and grab your bike, service it, and bring it back, with no extra charge! If you don't have a bike to be serviced then we also have a range of used bikes, ex-hire bikes and new bikes for sale which you can check out down the page.

Thanks for stopping by

About Us


Our mechanics are Cytech trained with years of experience and a passionate for all cycling disciplines. We love working with all of Bournemouth's cyclists, whether they're commuters, promenade cruisers, roadies, bmx'ers or mountain bike shredders.

We are more than happy to give advice on all things bike, whether you are in the market for a new bike, or just upgrading parts on your current one. We offer great value, charging just £29 for a standard service (the national average is £60!).

Our ex-hire bikes are great value and are of course fully serviced before you buy. We offer a buyback scheme for students that only need a bike for a few weeks or months.

Where are we?

Like we said at the top - Front Bike Hire is just 300 yards east of Bournemouth Pier. You'll often see one of us tinkering with a bike around the side, renting out a bike to one of the good people of Bournemouth, or playing ball with our mascot Austin, who coincidentally is both a lovely dog and a terrible bike technician. 

We also have a home workshop, so give us a call to arrange either bringing your bike down to us or for us to pop round to you and pick it up.

Second Hand Bikes/Ex Hire Bikes

We have a range of second hand bikes that have all been thoroughly serviced and checked. Ask us about our buy back scheme if you are a student and only need the bike for a short period. 


If you have a bike that you might be getting rid of then please bring it down to the pier and we'll be very happy to take a look at it to buy it from you or take it on in part exchange  for another one of our fine bikes.

For Sale

Please get in touch about any bike that you are interested in and we can arrange a viewing. Please note that we don't keep all of our second hand bikes on the premises at Front Bike Hire - so let us know beforehand and we'll make sure to have it in for you when you come down!
