I've known Stuart for a few years now, and find him, and his business to be a breath of fresh air! Stuart's knowledge of all things pedal powered is immense, and he is always happy to answer questions you may have. I did a basic mechanic course with him, and was surprised how much I picked up during the session under his expert guidance. if you are thinking about booking one of these sessions with him, don't hesitate. He makes a good cuppa as well!

If carlsberg did local bike stores… …Whilst away on holiday my bike developed a loud clunking when peddling. I suspected a problem with the bottom bracket. I called Stuart who was able to look at it the same day, less than two hours later problem solved and new BB30 bearings fitted. Awesome service from a knowledgeable mechanic who provides value for money. Thank you

Thanks so much to Stuart for sorting out the mess I'd got my bike into today by riding through some sticky tar that they'd put down prior to resurfacing the Malham-Arncliffe road. I turned up without booking and he cleaned up the mess straight away, trying several products before finding the best for the job. And he didn't even make me feel stupid 🙂

I have shipped the bike from abroad so I could get a few rides in during my time in the UK. It must have gotten knocked during transportation and the rear mech hanger was out if line. After a really annoying ride with gears all over the place i popped into see Steve and within seconds the bike was on a repair stand, expensive special tools to the ready and the mech hanger was aligned and gears were perfect. Awesome service, especially as I walked in unannounced with no appointment...... Many thanks

Helped me strip down my DT Swiss hub, that I couldn't do. Stuart is so pleasant as well as being technically fantastic. I wouldn't go anywhere else if I needed a bike building. A top place for individual service.

If you can find better service in a bike shop then I will eat my overshoes. Always friendly, helpful and courteous. As an Engineer who has been looking after bikes for over 30 years there are not many people I would trust with my bikes and Stuart is top of the list. Definitely worth a serious detour if you need solid advice and first class service.

Stuart prepared an insurance crash report for my bike which was damaged in a collision. The service and speed in preparing the report was excellent and I was impressed with his cycling knowledge and the cleanliness of his workshop. Thoroughly recommended.

Stuart is a legend. I'm new to the area and took my bike yesterday lunchtime with a damaged pedal thread that another bike shop said couldn't be repaired, but Stuart fixed it and serviced it in record time. He is really knowledgeable and a genuinely nice guy who I feel I can trust with my bikes. I am looking forward to a ride/breakfast on Embsay Crag!

It is not a coincidence that Stuart has over 50 5 star reviews. I took my bike to him this morning with a gear problem that 2 previous mechanics had failed to sort out, despite having told me they had done all they good to optimise the 1 x 11 set up. Stuart thought his way through the problem and sorted it out same day. He also gave me some very helpful advice about how to get maximum life from the transmission. I have been visiting bike shops for over 25 years and I can honestly say that he is the most competent, confidence inspiring mechanic I have come across in a long time. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others. Dan Hill

Stuart is very patient, competent and open. He explained the major bike service piece by piece, costed it quickly and despite changes stuck to price. Delivered ahead of time to budget - perfect- thanks Stuart

Stuart has looked after my bike on a number of occasions in the last couple of years including di2 malfunctions, seized breaks, check over and repair after a bump and more di2 mishaps. He has always been able to fit me in at short notice and with a very quick turn around. He offers great value for money and impartial advise on all things biking!

When you make the mistake of buying wheels on line and they don't work, you need someone like Stuart. It wasn't initially obvious what was wrong, and he could easily have told me just to send them back, but he didn't. He persevered and sorted out the problem, meaning I can use them this weekend in the year's first triathlon. Thanks Stuart

Stuart is so meticulous and calm and confident it makes me wonder if I do what I do for a living as well. I made a last minute request for some help with my bike and he not only 'fitted me in' but for those fifteen crucial minutes I was the only thing that mattered to him. He puts the pro in professional – with panache on top. Bloody good cyclist too. Chapeau!

Been taking my bikes to Stuart for a few years now and I always receive excellent service and the work is always of high quality. He has years of experience and a vast amount of knowledge on all things bike related, from the classics and current bikes to the future trends in the sport.

I bought a very unusual 150mm QR front fork on a Salsa Beargrease, Stuart is the only person I know who would take a Hope 170mm QR and make it fit. Brilliant job as usual. Still using Stuart and I live in North Wales. Can't beat a great bike mechanic.

Stuart (the owner) is very knowledgeable. He is an absolute gentleman and I have now been to see him twice. The first time I visited Stuart’s workshop was to have him remove a Campagnolo crankset with bottom bracket off a bike I had then. He only charged a nominal sum for his services but that’s when we got talking and he shared his pearls of wisdom regarding training and equipment to maximise my cycling experience. I was just starting out back then. I re-visited the second time for a look at my cycling technique / position on a turbo trainer to ensure nothing major was off. I had bike fit done on my previous bike and I had managed to translate the measurements taken then across to the new bike but still wanted to make sure it was OK. I was very happy with my second encounter with stuart too. He spent time looking at my handlebar set up (needing a small adjustment), pedalling and saddle position whilst I tried Zwift on his smart turbo trainer for the first time. He also recommended a book to use for training with power meter. In essence, he has a lot of knowledge, experience, excellent communication skills and will spend the time with you to make each visit as personalised as possible. You will feel like a pro-athlete having a tailor made session! I live in Leeds and the first time I went was out of necessity (no one local who would take Campag crank off) but now choose to visit him for all of the above mentioned reasons. Highly recommended!!!

Great service with equally great advice and knowledge. Passionate and enthusiastic about what he does which shows in the level of attention to detail your bike will receive. A trusted and respected bike mechanic.

Dropped into RCC on short notice, and Stuart was more than happy to squeeze me in to his busy schedule, and ensure my brakes were in top condition. Lovely relaxed atmosphere in the workshop. Great to chat to someone that is so passionate about his career, and cycling in general. Will not hesitate to visit again.

Brilliant. We turned up with no appointment as our son's bike cable had snapped that day. Stuart fixed and replaced both cables (they were the original 1980s ones!) within 15 mins and price was v reasonable. Extremely grateful, great service.
