[WERBUNG/AD – Gifted Experience] Struggling to find time to repair your bike or simply don’t know how? We went and tried out this new home bike repair service in Munich… and we wheelie like it!
Over the summer we became acquainted with a new Munich-based start-up that boasted about its great new hassle-free ( and budget-friendly!) home bike repair service.
So a member of our Bored in Munich team (and bike newbie) decided to get in contact and see if Bikepick was in fact a great pick.

How does BikePick work?
The service is a pretty simple concept. You go to their website and choose which service you would like to sign up for.
Their services range from a standard check-up package to a premium package service for E-bikes, with each package including pick up and drop off of your bike at the time of your choice*.
Once you’ve selected the option you would prefer, you can either choose to meet them and hand over your bike or agree on a location where you will leave your bike with a combination lock and provide them with the code.
After some personal information, you will be asked to provide details regarding your bike. The type, color, brand as well as a section to describe any additional details about your bike, or describe some issues you have been having.
What is the pricing for Bikepick?
Bikepick offers a variety of services packages ranging from 19€ to 169€ or alternatively a list of pricing for individual repairs-such as brake tightening or even cutting off a bike lock you’ve lost the key for.
Additionally, when booking your service, at the end near the payment details, they will ask you if you would like to provide an allowance.
What does this allowance do exactly? Well, in the event that they discover your bike needs some extra repairs, the allowance you put in is their limit to further repair your bike without needing to reach out to you or disrupt the timeline for your bike’s repairs.
How we rate our experience with Bikepick Munich
We found Bikepick to be one of the most truly hassle-free interactions we’ve ever experienced with any service in Munich.
Booking was a breeze and the team was very friendly and attentive with their communication.
Our teammate, a new bike owner with no knowledge of any bike repairing tasks, had originally just wanted a check-up on her bike due to flat tires, but Bikepick discovered that her brakes were not functioning fully and repaired them swiftly without disrupting the intended bike return timeline.
Overall, we would say the experience was pretty Fahr-RAD.
