I live in South Devon and in my opinion the three main bike shops offer very poor value and service, therefore, I wouldn't trust them to rebuild my wheels around my Hope Pro IIs. Has anyone got any good experiences of wheel-builders in Devon? Exeter and Plymouth are reachable, but I dont know the bike shops there. Thanks.
Can anyone recommend a wheel-builder in Devon?
Probably too far, but Tim at Martyn Ashfield Cycles in Risca (near Newport) is excellent and getting quite a reputation for his wheel builds. Might be worth a call. I went to him and I'm 150 miles away! He's on 01633 601040
Thanks, worth the call.
Tavistock cycles have got a good reputation, not tried them myself though...
try "Wheels in Motion" in Chard on 01460 63223
Andy and Margaret (the owners) are great people and Andy is an excellent bike mechanic
Probably the best bike shop I've ever dealt with
Andy built me some mavic x317 on hope xc hubs in 2002 and theyre still running true.
Also built me some mavic open pros on hope hubs for my road bike and again they're still going strong
hijack - do you have any local ride spots in south devon? or do you head to the moor or haldon for your riding? i visit kingsbridge area a few times a year and was wondering - hijack
Livin in Kingsbridge. Eastern Dartmoor is the only way...
Dartmoor and Haldon are the main focus of my riding. However, there is a good ride that takes in most of the green lanes between Totnes and Harberton. Plym woods has some short-course dh/jumps that has been worked hard on by the local kids. Park in the B&Q car park and head upstream into the woods and its up the hill on the right once at a style.
