NEW WORKSHOP – The internet won’t fix your bike…
We’ve had a lot of projects on over the winter, but none as big as the new workshop. Our old store room became the new workshop, giving us more space to incorporate all of our services in one purpose built area.
A lot of time, effort (and money!) went into this and it’s the heart of the store. We’ve already acquired a great reputation for what we do and this only helps us to take things to the next level.
The new space gives us room for upto 3 bikes to be worked on at any one time (great for frame swaps and custom builds) dedicated work space for suspension service, wheel building, brake bleeding, hub work, cleaning and skate sharpening/repair.
Our well stocked spare parts store is right next door and we’re more efficient than ever with a fully computerized booking system and calendar.
It’s not just the workshop itself that got a revamp either. Over the winter we’ve been working hard to keep ourselves updated with new technology and service procedures. We’re proud to say that we’re now officially recognized as a SHIMANO SERVICE CENTER – this means we have an in depth knowledge and understanding of Shimano product and technology, keep genuine parts in stock and can deal with most aspects of the Shimano brand. This has been a big undertaking from us, but it’s not just a one hit thing. We are also enrolled in a Shimano TEC programme, which means we regularly (weekly) sit at the computer and ‘go back to school’ in order to complete a vast (and ever growing) technical course designed to make us fully aware of all Shimanos latest technologies and service procedures.
As if this wasn’t enough – we’ve also recently been accredited as a FOX FACTORY SERVICE CENTRE. One step further on the suspension servicing ladder. This adds to our Rock Shox servicing recognition, Cannondale Official service partner and most recently – Cane Creek suspension service. All this investment in skills, knowledge, tooling and spare parts means we are well covered when it comes to looking after your bike!
