MTB Mechanic In Central London – Look mum no hands! to continue Soho Bikes’ specialist workshop services

by 0

When Soho Bikes closed at the end of January there were a few cries from mountain bikers who were disappointed to find they’d no longer have somewhere in central London to take their bikes for fettling and fixing. Or should that just be fixing – does anyone fettle outside of Yorkshire? Anyway, for the Londoner who likes to avoid home spannering, a new solution presents itself as the following press release has just landed:

‘We are pleased to announce that Look mum no hands! (LMNH) will start offering the specialist mountain bike workshop services that were available at Soho Bikes. These include suspension fork and shock servicing, frame bearing replacement, brake bleeding, tubeless set-up, custom bike builds and Invisiframe application… As well as all the regular repairs and fixes.

‘Sam Humpheson, founder of LMNH, commented on the move: “We are really excited to be taking on Soho Bikes’ head mechanic, Mariusz, and to start offering the quality, specialist mountain bike services that Soho Bikes were famous for. By moving the entire Soho Bikes workshop set-up from Berwick Street to Old Street, the aim is to provide as much continuity as possible for customers. If you used to go to Soho Bikes you can now come to LMNH for a very similar experience and range of services.”

‘Nick Hawker, former manager of Soho Bikes added: “The workshop was the heart of our bike business in Soho and it’s fantastic this will be continued. LMNH already have an established workshop and cater for all types of cyclists, so they are well positioned to become the place in central London to have your mountain bike serviced and repaired. I’m sure our great customers from Soho will find they are very well looked after on Old Street.”‘

Hannah Dobson

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
