About fettle;

Fettle is a rapidly expanding bike repair and service business that is dedicated to promoting sustainable transportation and making cycling more accessible for everyone.

Last year, we launched a new partnership co-locating with Kwik Fit centres. Marrying the cycling and automotive industry is a bold move and it’s paying off. That’s why this year is all about expansion and helping people, everywhere, stay safe on the roads. 

Cyclists using the fettle service benefit from:

  • Smooth, Simple Technology: As well as being into our bikes we are also tech geeks. We lean on software to make the whole experience easy for cyclists and allow mechanics to work efficiently.
  • Quality Services: Not only are our mechanics the best in-class, we are a friendly company who is obsessed with giving our customers unbeatable services. Check out our reviews for yourself
