So whether it's flying down the Tourmalet at 90kph, shooting singletrack in Wales or just dodging the buses in Oxford Street on your way to work you need know your bike won't let you down!.
Customer satisfaction is very important to us so if your bike doesn't need the full service we won't try and sell you one. Simarly if we don't think you will gain from a cycle fit we won't recommend one- although it should be said most riders, whatever their level or years of riding experience, will see at the very least 'marginal gains' in performance and comfort from a professional bike fit.
Every bike is treated with great care and attention- as if it was the mechanic's own. We want to get to know you and your bike so that you come to regard us as your 'personal' fitter and mechanic.
