Regular bicycle maintenance is crucial for safety and optimal performance. Bringing your commuting bike in for a service ensures that it remains in top condition, reducing the risk of unexpected breakdowns and ensuring a smooth, reliable ride.


Servicing your leisure bike is essential to maintain its longevity and performance. A professional check can identify and address any wear and tear, ensuring a safe and enjoyable riding experience during your leisure activities. 


Regular servicing for your race bicycle is vital to maximise its performance. Fine tuning components, checking for any signs of wear and tear, and ensuring optimal gear functionality can enhance your racing experience.

Amazing experience. I brought in my recently bought Canyon road bike for a pdi check and Jake managed to get everything done in a very short notice, including changing crank arms and improving the brakes bite. Super professional and friendly, plus the place is really cool ! Cannot recommend it enough!

- Eduardo

At Silk Cycles you will find friendly, honest and unbiased service. Jake & Laurie are amazing mechanics- they are so knowledgeable about all types of bike and clearly love all things cycling. The shop is a delight to visit, and you can tell that care and attention goes into everything they do.

- Sam

Excellent service through and through, their collection and drop off service was exactly what I needed due to it being infeasible for me to get to them during their opening hours. I just needed my brakes bleeding, but Jake went above and beyond and checked over the whole bike for safety and let me know of what I would need to look at repairing in the future.

- Jack

Jake is an absolute top chap and even better bike mechanic! I would highly reccomend Silk Cyles to anyone. I had issues with my integrated cockpit and Jake meticulously spent the time in diagnosing the problem and resolving the issue. He really went above and beyond

Since 2015


We are a small, fully equipped workshop based in Bakers Yard, Exeter. Providing world class cycle servicing to any bicycle. With nearly 15 years experience, we’ve hit most corners of the cycle industry, including support for BBC charity events as well as MTB guiding. For the last 7 seasons however, alongside running the Silk Workshop I’ve also been a part of UCI world cup DH mountain bike team – FMD Racing where I was the lead mechanic looking after the Seagrave’s and crew. That has came to an end lastyear and Silk Cycles is now the sole focus!
