Will I get another bike during the fix?

Small repairs will be done on site. In other cases, we will swap your bike for another working bike right away. You're back on the road before you know it! 

How long does my repair take?

In case we decide to repair your bike on site, the repair takes a maximum of 10 minutes. In case it takes longer we mostly decide to Swap your bike for another working bike. 

Can I also visit the store for a repair?

Of course! In most of the cases you are more than welcome in one of our Swapstores. Here you can ask all of your questions and concerns and to get your bike fixed or to replace your bike. This is always the fastest option.
