A little bit about me - Jackie Gilligan
Having a deep-rooted lifelong love of all things cycling, having raced, ridden the daily commute, and generally messed about having fun on bikes in East and West Sussex all my life I am now fully qualified to work on them safely and with care. Yours and mine.
I've been servicing and repairing my own bikes for over 35 years.
Recently having been given the opportunity to finally work for myself doing something I love, the 'Bike Repair Box' in Ringmer near Lewes was born. Now in its 6th year and still helping my local community keep those wheels rolling. I'm loving it.
Set up in my own workshop and with a mobile 'Pick up & Drop Off' service based in Ringmer just outside Lewes in East Sussex. With the right tools, which are of the finest quality and allow for precise and safe working on your bikes I am always able to provide a unique service in the Sussex area.
I love my bikes and I will treat yours as one of my own.
Having attained my City & Guilds Level 2 and Accreditation with Merit at The Bike Inn Training centre. Equivalent to the New Cytech Level II Qualifications now being used in the trade I can now keep you and your family safe with my service and repair options. From puncture repairs to full Frame Builds.
I'm based in Ringmer near Lewes on the No.2 Sustrans Cycle route just around the corner from Cafe Ringmer.
I can provide a free mobile 'Pickup and Drop Off' service within 5 miles (small mileage charge beyond that).
You can Drop into my workshop if I'm in for minor repairs, a safety check or a chat about your bike. Why not pop into Cafe Ringmer for a coffee break while you wait. I'll call you when your bike is ready.
Bikes matter. Look after them and they will look after you.
I am passionate about bikes and want you to be too. Ring for a no jargon chat where I can discuss your service and repair needs, whats involved and how much it's going to cost.
When booking your bike in I will make sure we both understand what work is required and any parts that may be needed.
I will always contact you before completing any additional work that may become necessary.
Check out my services and repairs pages for more details.

The weather outside is - well, a bit mucky!
Don't forget, this time of year is cruel to your bikes.
They will suffer from constant wet and muck especially your bottom brackets and Headsets.
Even diligent washing will push that protective grease out of those hidden areas and if left will seize and cost a lot more to put right.
Get your Wheels checked out here at Bikerepairbox and be ready to roll out into the better weather to come.
Book in well in advance before the quite time for us Mechanics is over. Last year we were all looking at 2-3 weeks in advance for servicing. Any issues or need advise just ring me.
No project too small.
Give me a call to discuss your needs
