Only used once, but friendly service and reasonable prices. Not condescending as some bike shops can be. Wish it was a bit closer.

Really excellent service - definitely worth making the long journey. Knowledge is second to none, and the bike fitting is always well worth the trip. Have been coming here for years, and been fitted on all my bikes, and learn so much every time - and there are really noticeable benefits, both in terms of comfort and speed.

Recently popped in to see Ryan, suffering with pain in my feet during cycling. Ryan suggested a shoe/cleat fitting discussion. Ryan was great to deal with friendly, relaxed, and knowledgeable. Having suggested and implementing cleat realignment I went away to give the new set up a try. The difference has been amazing from a pain factor of 8/10 to now a pain factor of 1/10. Absolutely brilliant Ryan. Many many thanks for your help. Chapeau to you.

Fabulous service, first time I've been to have a bulb fitted, all done in about 20 mins from going into the store to leaving the car park, and loads cheaper than I'd have to pay my local garage....AND here's one for the girls... it was done by a lovely young woman, I wouldn't know where to start! I'm well impressed.

Good store. Anthony (the ginger lad with the beard) did a good job fitting my window wipers. Friendly lad.
