Top 5 home bicycle repairers in Paris

Discover the best bicycle repair services in Paris in December 2023, directly to your home. If you are looking for a repair service without hassle or travel, these specialists will meet your needs. How to choose among these experts? Here is a comprehensive guide to help you in your thinking.

The criteria used and the method of our investigation

The average rating of customer reviews

The first criterion to look at is the average customer review score. This allows you to get an idea of ​​the quality of service, professionalism and sympathy of the repairers. For this survey, we will only relay the Google rating, but you can also read customer reviews to get more details about their experience.

The radius of action

The speed of intervention and the geographical area covered are also key points. Rapid availability for urgent repair is essential, as is geographic coverage of the service. Some repairers guarantee appointments in less than 48 hours, or even the same day, which can be a major advantage for daily users of their bike.

The price

The third criterion to take into account is the price of home bicycle repair. You should know that the price can vary depending on the type of bike, the type of breakdown, the type of part to be changed, etc. For this ranking, we will compare the prices of three classic interventions on standard muscle bikes: complete overhaul (adjustment of brakes, speeds, inflation, safety points, transmission), puncture (change of inner tube on a standard bike) and change of 'a pair of skates.

After-sales service - Repair monitoring

Finally, the quality of after-sales service is a crucial point. A guarantee on repairs carried out, professional liability insurance and post-repair monitoring are reassuring elements for customers.

Our method

Here is our evaluation method: each repairer receives a score out of 5 for each criterion, then a final score is assigned by averaging these evaluations.

#1 Cyclofix

Overall rating: 4.9/5

We are close to perfection. Cyclofix does very well with a good score for each criterion retained. We particularly appreciate the transparency and honesty of their price list as well as their very favorable reviews.

The little extras : quote validated before intervention, possibility of reserving the same repairer as before, availability 7/7 from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The little ones - : since you have to find the little creature: it is difficult to reserve for the same day.

Customer reviews: 4.7/5

Google rating for 1704 reviews. Customer reviews are rave. It is not uncommon to find superlatives like “Excellent”, “Fast”, “Friendly” when reading reviews from customers who seem satisfied both by the quality of service and by their interactions with repairers.

Speed ​​of intervention: 5/5

Cyclofix guarantees an appointment in less than 48 hours. Slots are available Monday to Sunday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., they are unbeatable on this evaluation criterion. However, you will need to count on an extra charge ranging from €5 to €10 to book early in the morning, late in the evening or on weekends. In terms of intervention area, all of Paris is covered and the inner suburbs are also covered.

Price: 4/5

Changing an inner tube will cost you €23, changing a pair of skates €24, a complete overhaul of the bike will cost €54 whether it is electric or muscular.

If these prices are very fair, we deplore the addition of €6 for travel and service costs to the quote, even if this remains very reasonable.

After-sales service: 5/5

Cyclofix offers you Axa insurance on all repairs. If you suffer damage as a result of the intervention of a repairer, you can declare a claim with the repairer's insurance in order to obtain financial compensation when the liability of the repairer is incurred.

#2 The Traveling Repairman

Update December 2023: the traveling repairer seems to have ceased its activity.

Depending on availability, it is more or less difficult to call Maël quickly. The day we took the test, we had to wait 72 hours to find an appointment. Simply fill out an online form or contact them by phone or email. He travels on a cargo bike with his equipment and the necessary parts.

He works on all types of bicycles, classic or electric, and provides quality services, ranging from tire changes to complete overhauls. Home repair is a bit expensive and limited to 3 days per week.

Doctocyclo is an expert in bicycle and scooter repair in Paris. It offers a home or office service, but also two fixed kiosks on Place de la République and close to Lyon station. It works on all types of bicycles, classic or electric, and even on electric scooters. A “runner” collects the bike from you, repairs it in the workshop and then brings it back to you, which therefore generates significant travel costs.
