Bike Repair Services

Melbourne Bicycle Centre Prahran has over 25 years experience in servicing all types of bicycles including: Road, Mountain, Hybrid, Flat Bar, Electric, Tandem, Exercise Equipment and Kid’s Bikes.


Our mechanic, Brad, is well known for the quality of his work and the pride he takes with each and every job! From full bicycle re-builds, cleaning to changing a tube - No job is too big or too small and our prices are the best in Melbourne! 


Parts prices are very competitive but if you bought your parts online, don’t worry, we can fit those too! We also offer bike assembly and wheel building.


We recommend that you book your bike in for the required service. In most cases we offer a same day service, where your bike is dropped off prior to 11.00am on the day of service and is available to be picked up after 4:30pm.


Bikes must be booked in prior to servicing or repairs on (03) 9529 3752 extension 4.


We also offer mobile mechanical services to most areas of Melbourne, click here to enquire.
