Boardman Endurance Signature
This bike came in as it needed the fork steerer trimmed down to suit the riders’ position, in addition to this they wanted to switch to a slightly longer stem.
The customer chose to use ‘Enve’ products for their bike build.
Personally I like the setup chosen, and I am a fan of the ‘Boardman’ bike brand, as they produce some great bikes, which sometimes don’t get the credit and attention they deserve.
The Campagnolo group set had a tune up too, as Campagnolo service centre I can service and maintain their complete range.
Boardman Air TT 9.0
It was originally fitted with ‘Shimano 105’ and came in for a strip down and rebuild.
We upgraded to an ‘SRAM Force’ 11 speed Groupset.
Following the recommendations after an Aero Bike Fit we changed the cockpit using Zipp Vuka Tri bars and an adjustable stem, the changes enabled the rider to significantly improve their position and reduce drag.
We also upgraded to some very lightweight aero wheels and fitted tubular tyres.
A complete bike service was carried out, we checked, cleaned the components, and replaced anything that was worn out.
A few upgrades were made after a bike fit. We replaced the chainset with shorter 165mm cranks, the saddle to a ‘Fabric Tri’ Triathlon Specific saddle, Elite bottle cages were fitted to the downtube and rear of the saddle. The upgrades were colour matched, to compliment the bike.
This bike was setup to this specification as the rider was competing in the London Triathlon and wanted a good setup for the event. The bike performed well and surpassed expectations, I’d like to think work to service the bike helped a little!
Classic Bike Restoration/Renovation
Here we have a couple of classic bike renovations, the first is a Beautiful DeRosa from the 1980’s still with original components. The owner asked to have it serviced and recommissioned, where possible we used original parts. The bike was stripped down to the bare frame, every component was cleaned & inspected. If parts were worn, we replaced them, we then went through the processing of rebuilding, greasing & reassembly of the bike & components, the bike was then given a detailed clean & polish to give it a shine!
The next one is a Kona Mountain bike, this is a real time warp bike and again well cared for, we applied the same process to rebuild this one ensuring that the bike rode and felt better than when it left the factory!
