Complete build of your dream bike
I will collect your bike or you can deliver it to me at a mutually convenient time. I don't work shop hours!
I am happy to give you a quote or just offer advice.

There is nothing quite like a pair of handbuilt wheels.....components of your choice....to meet your exact requirements.... assembled accurately and precisely.
We will discuss your needs, I will offer advice, suggestions and a quote. When you are happy I will build a pair of very nice wheels.
I use a P&K Lie truing stand to ensure accuracy and precision and I will take the time to balance the spoke tensions so that you will have a pair of wheels which will be a joy to ride on for many, many miles.

Here are some of the jobs I have done
I love to ride and I like my bikes to be working perfectly. I will apply the same perfectionism to your bike to make it as good as it can be.
I have been doing "mechanical stuff" for as long as I can remember: as a teenager, I helped my Dad fix his cars; as an adult I graduated to servicing my own motorbikes and cars.
In 2005 I sold the last of my motorbikes and became increasingly passionate about bikes and cycling. I naturally continued to do my own maintenance and some work for friends.
I progressed onto completing the Cytech training (to Technician level - the picture below is the final day of the course) and increasing amounts of work for friends and colleagues. Redundancy has given me a new opportunity and I look forward to expanding my cycling business while keeping the passion and perfectionism.
