Silk Cycles

Maintenance & Repairs

Since 2015


We are a small, fully equipped workshop based just outside of Exminster, Exeter. Providing world class cycle servicing to any bicycle. With over 10 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 5 years however, alongside running the Silk Workshop we’ve also been a part of UCI world cup DH mountain bike team – FMD Racing where I am now the lead mechanic looking after Tahnee Seagrave and the crew.

Here at the Silk Workshop we love fixing anything that is pedal powered – old or new, rusty or shiny rest assured, we leave your bike running smooth as… Silk

We love fixing anything pedal powered!


With over a decade of experience, our knowledge of bicycles spans all disciplines. Our friendly attitude is backed up by industry recognised qualification as mechanics and mountain bike guides, so you can rest assured that both you and your steed are in good hands.


No matter what your cycles needs are, we can cover them all. Be it the tedious jobs like tweaking those noisy gears or a cable replacement, straight through to suspension servicing and wheel builds. If it’s advice you want, just get in touch. We can help you if you’re just starting out on your cycling journey, or if you’re looking for a high end custom build, Silk Cycles will give you friendly advice with or without the techno babble – whatever suits you.


Be it a family ride, or your own slice of 2 wheeled heaven.

Booking Service

As mentioned before, throughout the summer months (and some winter ones) I work for FMD Racing on the UCI DH World Cup Circuit, which means sometimes i’m not around when needed.

However, we’ve set up a booking service for your ease so you can see when i’m away and when i’m back. Plan ahead and ride to your hearts content, knowing that you have a slot for your faithful steed to get fixed up.

Shopping bikes, old faithful, new faithful or whatever two wheels keep you happy. We’ve got you covered.

Mountain Warriors

Be it your first mountain machine, retro Klunker, hard-as-nails hardtail or full suss dream machine, we’ll keep you rolling.

Kids bikes take more abuse than most. We can fix it, big or small.  Keep them keen, keep them fit, keep them rippin’!
