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. Days are limited to 6 jobs a day, with room for drop ins. Call or email if you have any questions whatsoever.
Frequently Asked Questions
Collection and drop off?
Here at silk we try to make getting your bike fixed as little hassle as possible – especially during the current climate.
Therefore for anyone living between Teignmouth and Exminster we are offering free collection and drop off. Our collection times are between 8.30 and 9.30 and drop off times are between 5.30 and 7pm.
For anyone living in Exeter and surrounding districts there is a charge of £5. Anywhere further afield – a £10 drop off collection and drop off charge will ensue.
Although I’m off with FMD Racing a lot of the year, I try to chuck a hand in when possible at the best local riding spot around – Café side, based on the A380 side of Haldon Hill.
The dig crew have been working relentlessly on these amazing trails for 15+ years, and have witnessed them go from a secret spot for locals to one of Devon’s best know riding locations.
Future plans are in motion to hopefully make it all slightly more official, something everyone is working hard towards. All very much a pipeline movement at the moment, but we’ll keep you updated as progress follows.
In the mean time you can donate to the Clubs PayPal – all of which goes towards trail maintenance and tool refreshments.
Free collection and delivery (call or email for details).
With over a decade of experience, our knowledge of bicycles spans all disciplines. Our friendly attitude is backed up by industry recognised qualifications in cycle maintenance and world cup level racing experience, so rest assured that both you and your steed are in good hands.

The Storage Factory
Based on the cycle route from Exminster into Exeter, we are also in a great location for those commuters who resent having to travel into town on your day off. Ride down and walk home, and sometimes collect the same day.
