We have a lot to thank our bikes for. For taking us down country lanes to catch the sunset. For those tricky coastal paths that lead to unspoiled shores. For the family trails and the memories made. We might move the pedals but it’s our trusty two wheeled compadre that makes the moments happen.

Our bikes go through a lot, just like our cars, so they deserve the same TLC, if not more! Through wind, rain and shine they take us from A to B, so it’s natural to expect a little wear and tear. Luckily, we have a great range of products to keep your bike in tip top condition all year round.

I’ve used this kit for several strip down and re-builds. I’m a keen cycle mechanic and use expensive workshop tools for a living. These tools are excellent quality for the home mechanic. The quality isn’t far off the best and with a lifetime warranty it represents even better value.
