The Platinum Service is an extension on the economy service. On top of the 14 point service you will also get brand new stainless steel gear and brake(if applicable)inner cables fitted inclusive of the labour price. Or for hydraulic brakes you will get both brakes bled with new oil. You will also benefit from having the Bottom bracket and hubs rebuilt with new grease and the whole drivetrain gets put through the parts washer for a thorough clean. Any parts that are over 50% worn are replaced(of course we will notify you before fitting any new parts for approval).
This one's purely aimed at our customer's who have a very important long distance ride coming up. or simply wouldn't mind spending money on getting their bike to work 100% like new. It is not uncommon for these services to run into the £100+ mark but it will ensure everything on your bike is 100% mechanically sound.
Your bike is of course test ridden before and after the service to ensure satisfactory results.
