That was a cold one 🥶 Another great UK Cycling Events #gravel event (over in the South Downs), the last one for the year 😢
It’s been a big deal for us being asked to design the routes, we can’t wait for more next year.
Always nice to see Velo Care who was there looking after all the riders. We also spied the Nukeproof team there in full gravel mode!

Darren at Velo Care has saved many race days by being on hand at our events for those unexpected mechanicals!

Keep on top of your maintenance :)
The after shot, in the the daylight 😀, thanks for battling the traffic a fitting them last night. Looking forward to get out on them 👍🚴🏼‍♂️💨
Flexibility, dedication and incredibly amazing in the work that's done!
Thanks for sorting my brake issue on the Mendips sportive, after hitting 40 plus on one down hill section very pleased I had full braking capacity again. Excellent service 👍
Great service, reasonably priced. Definitely my go to cycle servicer in the future. Cheers Darren.
Just received an excellent and very thorough service from Velo Care 👌🏼
Brilliant bike repair, bike looks brand new! Thank you!

Ever thought of racing in weather and conditions that make you run for the thermostat like a scolded cat?

Then cyclocross is probably not for you….

But if you’re still scrolling and you fancy joining in with the other like minded nutters @nova_race_team then get over to their bio and apply for the 2022/23 season 🙌

Sweet little build for James on its way back home today 🚜

James bought the frame and we specced and supplied all the parts from wheels and tyres through to the new XPLR SRAM rival Groupset based on his requirements.

Want some custom gravel action?? 😜

Off the road for a week as the “new” van needed……a new gearbox clutch and flywheel 😭
Back on the road JUST in time for my gravel event tomorrow with @ukcyclingevents

Thanks as always to Hurst Auto Assistance Ltd for getting me on the road quickly. When your business is on wheels they really need to be moving! 🚐 💨

New Pacenti PR38/50 wheels for Mark. 💨

Mark came to me for advice on new wheels after his Mavics pulled a spoke through the aluminium structure within the carbon wheel =💀

There is a lot of noise out there regarding aero gains and weight but not so much regarding quality and longevity it seems, and this is what the industry is struggling with. scrabbling over a few grams here and there using aluminium spoke nipples to the detriment of the wheel build.

These wheels have a heat dissapaiting braking surface, 6 point engagement freehub and are built using brass spoke nipples meaning…..the wheels last as long as they say they should! 🙌

The result…..almost 500 grams saved over the previously fitted wheelset using quality materials👌

Long shadows on Shaun’s ORRO Venturi STC ☀️

As of this week, we will unfortunately no longer be selling Hunt wheels through Velo Care. I had unashamedly been pushing these wheels and the benefits to consumers over the last 2.5 years but I am currently overrun with warranty issues, to the extent that it is no longer feasibly economic for me to continue selling these wheels with the current level of build quality.

Any outstanding orders will be fulfilled and any valid warranty period will be honoured. We have already put alternative suppliers in place so If you would like details for an affordable, robust, high quality wheelset then please get in touch. Thanks! 🤘

Cross is coming….. 🤟

So we have bought in some fresh rubber! @challengetires Baby Limus, Limus and Chicane TLR tubeless tyres are all in stock and ready to go 💨

Robs new zipp bars finally arrived, 7 months after ordering them, but SO worth the wait! 😎

If you didn’t know (I mean, have you been hiding under a rock? 🙈) there are HUGE supply chain issues in the cycling trade atm so please bear with me!

Please keep an eye out, absolute scumbags

We were broken into last night! 17 cube reaction pro e-mountain bikes, all from the hire fleet, so used and without batteries or keys!
Please share!!!! We can surely get these back, bike shops may be asked for keys, or batteries. Our hire operation this summer is going to take a huge hit without these bikes! Please spread the word! Other bike shops, make sure you’re secure, We’d hate for anyone else to be targeted too!

One of my pet hates…..

A PF30 bottom bracket with a series of adaptors to fit a shimano chainset, lots of nasty creaking! 🤦‍♂️

Good job Rotor UK have a solution with the PF4624.

All aluminium shell and some lovely Enduro Bearings with Abec3 grease meaning

No more creaking ✅
Longer bearing life ✅
Better performance ✅
