With the summer season slowly slipping away to distant memories of sun kissed roads and drier ribbons of singletrack, I’ve finally got some time back to resume our Workshop Wednesday posts. So much has happened since our last post so I thought this first one should shine a light on some of the goings on that’s happened over the bustling summer and what to expect from future WW posts.
We’re now a registered Shimano Service Centre! Woo..! But what does that actually mean to have that blue sticker on the door? Well for Grant and I in the workshop, quite a lot. We’re now subject to frequent audits by Shimano Europe. We must continually complete the latest Shimano training courses to ensure we’re qualified and up to speed with each aspect of their product ranges across road, mountain and e-bikes. We also get some Shimano branded shirts and gilets! To you, the goal of the SSC is to provide the absolute best; access to professional and reliable service along with a wide on site availability of original Shimano parts to ensure your bike works exactly as Shimano engineered it to.
As well as becoming a SSC we’ve also had the privilege of building some really fantastic looking bikes, some of which Craig has already showcased on our Facebook page. A lot of these bikes featured the latest and greatest groupsets from Shimano and SRAM, so be sure to come back for the next posts where we’ll look at what sets these aside from the previous generations and some of the new tech that’s been introduced.
We’ll also have a look at our latest custom build with the new Dura-Ace 9150 Di2 with Synchroshift!
Until then, ride far and prosper!
