TF Tuned New Owners
I’ve met Tim in person at a couple of races and he’s always been a thoroughly nice chap, spoken with him on the phone and he’s always been willing to go above & beyond what you could reasonably expect from someone who must be so busy.
I know the company will stay in operation and I’m sure it’s great for Tim & Helen but it does still make me a little sad that a Company he’s worked so hard to build up has been purchased by some who perhaps see it as little more than a cash cow.
I know, I know, I’m a cynical old git.Posted 8 years ago
Tim Flooks was just fine with me on the 2 occasions I rang them.
why’s he selling?
I was just being tongue in cheek, I’ve met him a few times, he’s one of those people that isn’t afraid to speak his mind (if that’s how you want to put it), some people like that, some don’t. Personally I think it’s great as you know where you stand, and Tim SERIOUSLY knows his stuff. But some people like to be “schmoozed” as a customer, and have people pander to their ego’s etc. Tim ain’t the kind of guy to do that if you get my drift! Definitely a no nonsense, get the job done kind of guy.
And at a guess, I’d say the last point I made is probably why he’s selling it, yet remaining on in a technical capacity. Just speculation but it would allow him to carry on doing the bits he’s world class at (fixing bike suspension) without having to do loads of the other tat that most people don’t like about running a small business (accounts, chatting to bank managers etc.)Posted 8 years ago
Leave him alone, he really is a good bloke.
Just read some of the dumb ass questions posted on this and imagine getting interrupted by people asking similar kinds of questions when you`re trying to get on with a days work…..
You’re absolutely right, don’t think my tongue in cheek comment translated very well in written word! My bad! 😕Posted 8 years ago
