So I have previously called in here and been treated like a prick. Chas was so rude last time I swore I wouldn’t return.
Due to having a nice new chain and sprockets fitted by scorch, but him being on holiday when it reached the dreaded bedding in stretch point, i had to go elsewhere. I can walk back to work from Chasbikes, so decided to try again.
Fella tightened chain, sorted my front wheel alignment which I had mentioned, test rode it, found a slight flutter on front brake so removed caliper and cleaned and best of all noticed a brake cable had somehow been routed in such a way that it woul eventually have pinched behind headstock and cut.
One hours labour, £60, pretty standard I guess.
But he and the American chap were polite, pleasant, explained everything and generally good to deal with. Total turnaround.
I will still go to my man scorch but if in a bind, glad to know theres somewhere other than fwr so close to work. Fwr good too but just sooooo busy.
