It was a busy and varied week. We have our new signs in place now which visitors to the shop will have noticed. We are just off Durham Road in Blackhill, Consett and very close to the Derwent Walk and other local cycle routes.
Derwentside has some great options for cycling, sitting in between Weardale and Northumberland. Whether it be Road or off-road that interests you, there is a lot to appreciate.
Some of the jobs from this week include Dani who asked us to help with her new Giant Envie Aero road bike build, to Jordan who gave me a major overhaul of his trusty Specialized Enduro FSR including fitting of his supplied parts. Both different in bicycle type, but similar in their love of their cycles. We welcome all cyclists whatever your level from racer to leisure. My aim is to help people to enjoy their machines and develop services and stock to suit what you need as a customer. I’m just as happy to give advice on where to ride as to what components to fit to your pride and joy.
Cycle maintenance is very important to keep your bike in a safe rideable condition and if kept on top of doesn’t need to be expensive. Customers have asked about subjects such as; correct chain lubrication and lubricant choice, basic trail/roadside tool kits and what to have with you. Call in for a chat or phone to discuss these or many other bike Service, Repair, Upgrade questions you have.
