I get to work with amazing bikes

I get the full spectrum of bikes through my workshop from shoppers to commuters, from winter hacks to full on TT bikes.

All have a value to their owners. This bike was hand delivered from London as it was irreplaceable in every sense of the word. It is a very limited edition Colnago C59 Ottanta . With a bike worth £15K it got my full attention……..

Colnago C59 Ottanta seatpost removal

I had some bike enthusiasts say to me, “What? Pay £15K for a bike, but not £5 for the correct anti-seize post?”.

I understand that. However, in this case it had been fitted with the correct seat post paste. If no carbon is involved you can use an anti seize product but with carbon you are limited to anti slip paste which can dry out and very effectively bind the seat post in place.


I love helping get people back on their bikes, however much they cost in £. They’re invaluable to their owners. Thank you for trusting me with your amazing bike.
