TEAM INEOS F12 PINARELLO

At last we get to see the new F12, and what a beauty it is too!

Super light and stiff. The distributers in the UK have asked us to review some cosmetic damage which we can gladly help them with. The new Pinarrello UK are a fantastic team and their service is spot on from our experience. Chase them up for a demo of this beast. Honestly its another step up!

CAN YOU SAVE MY MARRAGE!

A customer from Greece asked us to save his marrage after he drove the bike into an overhead barrier, some of you might know that feeling!

Anyway pictures paint a thousand words.  Not only have we saved his marrage but provided him with a lifetime warranty to ensure he has a long and happy life!

CAN A MANUFACTURER REPAIR A BIKE?

Consider this – If you damaged your car door, and you have to repair it, who is best skilled to do the job?

The manufacturer uses machinery, materials and automation processes to construct an entire component, however the repairer is skilled to remove damage and restore utilising totally different tools and skills for the job.

In carbon it is much the same, bikes are manufactured using a variety of machinery to mould semi-complete components which require assembly as well as inspect for manufacture anomalies. The repairer is equiped to identify fracture anomalies, largely not experienced by the manufacturer. The repairer utilises a variety of diagnostics and localised repair processes, again, uncommon to the manufacturer.

The two skill sets are unrelated and should not be confused with each other.

CARBON BIKE REPAIR SALVAGE

Apart from the environmental aspect of needless waste, you can see just from a short period how many carbon bikes, some exceptionally expensive, are written-off through myth or demand.

Looking at this pile in our stores, it would be conceivable to assume that at least 70% of these frames and forks could be out giving someone great cycling pleasure. We have a salvage buying programme if anyone would like to have one of these bikes repaired for a fraction of the cost of a replacement. They all come with limited lifetime warranties so call with your size and your preference and we can look for you.
