Valves – Schrader Presta Woods Caps and Lock-nuts

Valves come in many shapes and sizes, but mainly you”ll find either Schrader or Presta valves that fit.

The Schrader valve (also called American valve[1]) The Schrader valve consists of a valve stem into which a valve core is threaded, and is used on virtually all automobile tires and motorcycle tires and most wider rimmed bicycle tires. The valve core is a poppet valve assisted by a spring and has a larger diameter (8 mm)
Schrader Valves are often found on Air Sprung Suspension Units, although some older models may require OEM adaptors (Marzocchi)

The Presta valve (also called Sclaverand valve[1] or French valve) is a valve commonly found in high pressure road style and some mountain bicycle inner tubes
The outer valve stem is manufactured in various lengths for different applications, and has a narrower diameter (6 mm)

Valve stem length varies especially with Deep-section Aero Rims and you’ll possibly need an angled valve for a push-chair wheel.

Dr Bike

Booking a Mechanic to come to you…

Many people refer to this service as Dr Bike but we offer more than just a simple bike health check, PDI or MOT if you’d like to think of it as that. Alongside a full safety inspection we will do minor repairs, adjustments, adapt your bike to suit you and advise you on how to look after your own bike to keep you running smoothly.

To book a experienced mechanic to come to your organisation or find out more about them, call 07771745110 or email kit@getmefixed.co.uk

What are the benefits

Bike health checks and minor repairs are a great way of attracting people to any event. Getting bikes in good condition is a great way to get people cycling for leisure or commuting. It’s amazing how many bikes sit in people’s shed that just need a quick tune-up to get them roadworthy again

As well as fixing up bikes our mechanics will explain how to keep bikes maintained and working. It’s amazing how many bikes on the road aren’t properly maintained, which is why these services are so popular.

Our professional mechanic arrives at your workplace or event fully equipped, and effortlessly fixes as many bikes as they can in the time provided, making sure everyone goes home happier and safer.

Why use us?

We’ve been running maintenance courses across for some time now, and in the industry for over a decade, and know just how confusing mechanics can be to the uninitiated.

We use all our experience to make sure our courses are clear, educational and fun. We already work with schools, bike clubs, businesses, charities, local councils all across London.

What do we provide?

Everything! You just give us a time and a location, and mechanic will be there.

Bikes can either be dropped off and left for the mechanic to work on or the mechanic can spend around 10 minutes with each client, adjusting their bike’s brakes and gears to make sure their bike runs super smoothly.

In the course of the ‘examination’, they give every bike an effective safety check and can also offer impartial advice if they spot more serious problems.

Typically a mechanic will, if necessary:

  • adjust and clean brakes and gears
  • replace brake cables and blocks
  • replace gear cables
  • clean and lubricate
  • check and inflate tyres
  • check headset and bottom bracket for play
  • replace missing bar and cable ends
  • advise on any further work that is needed

All spares listed above are included in the price. If further work is needed the mechanic will advise on the problem and what to ask for in a bike shop.

Want to Learn as well?

Our professional Mechanics can teach groups in your organisation about how a bike works and how to keep it in good shape. This activity is often run alongside a bike check session, bike club, events (although they can be booked independently) and can be tailored to your organisation. At workplaces these sessions are often referred to as a ‘lunchtime maintenance class’.

How much does it all cost?

Hiring a professional GetMeFixed bike mechanic costs £75 per hour with a minimum booking of three hours (for approximately 12-14 bike checks).  If you want more than one mechanic, we offer a discounted rate for the second (or more) mechanic: £55 per hour.

GMF offers discounted rates for community groups and schools, please get in touch to discuss how we can help your community event.

We can also link you up with our local cycling groups and community projects in your area who may be able to support your event.

Recycle a Bike Donations

Everywhere around the country there are many sad looking bikes sitting in garages gardens, sideways and hallways discarded almost  – unloved, unused and getting in the way. We can tackle this problem providing you a simple way to feel good, knowing where possible every last bit of your previously loved bike will go to a good use.

Where we have good stocks, we should be able to offer you a trade in on reconditioned re-sellable bikes useful as kids bikes do so often not grow like their owners.

We will collect free of charge old bikes. If we can refurbish and re-sell we will also make a donation to charity (Sustrans, or Bikes for Africa, or another cycling related charity you’d like to name) – this will nominally be up to £15* for a complete bike sold but if you have a particularly valuable bike to donate4, we may be able to donate more. If we cannot re-sell, at least you will have got it out of your garage knowing it’s not gone to waste but  a great new place!

To arrange a collection e-mail kit@getmefixed.com or call us on 07771 745 110.

* offer may be withdrawn without notice – we can only cope with a certain number of old bikes!
