New Bigger shop at Cycle Tech Oldham

Following our move just over a month ago to a fantastic new and bigger 1000 square foot unit in Lees, we finally have the internet working (phones still an issue but we are getting there) and starting to find parts and tools in the various boxes we still need to unpack

With the workshop being a lot bigger we can now repair and service customers bikes a lot quicker and best of all, Elliot and myself are not falling over each other when trying to work

The retail area is also a lot bigger giving us the opportunity to carry a wider range of bikes, accessories and with the extra space we are now stocking Madison clothing, Continental tyres and tubes.

We also decided to go with the Orbea Brand of bikes rather than stock lots of different makes at the new shop, we feel Orbea have a fantastic range of bikes, the warranty and back up is first class and on price comparison they are extremely competitively priced.

Bikes bought from us can be bought in many ways now, cash, card, cycle to work scheme, interest free finance over 12 months or longer terms with finance

We hope our existing  customers will continue to use us and hopefully new customers will come and see us for a look around, plus don’t forget we have free coffee and tea for all customers

Call or use the contact form below, We are always happy to give advice and talk bikes with our customers

Bicycle Gears Slipping

One of the most common repairs is for “Slipping gears”, normally a quick check reveals an excessively worn chain and in some cases a worn cassette as well

Picture on the left is a new cassette, picture on the right is a worn cassette, if the teeth on your cassette resemble the ones on the right (sharks teeth) it will need replacing

Cycle Tech Oldham will check your bike for free and can carry out any repair to your bicycle at a very competitive price

Internal Cable Routing

With more and more bicycles being fitted with internal cable routing it is increasingly becoming more difficult for the bicycle owner to replace the cables at home.

Some of the latest high end road bikes actually have the gear and brake cables routed through the handle bars and through the headstock before it gets to the frame, so nothing is visible at all until you get to the actual brake calliper or derailleur.

This is making the simple job of replacing cables a fiddly and near impossible job to do without the right tools, at Cycle Tech Oldham we have invested in the latest Park Tools internal cable routing equipment from the USA so we can keep up with the latest developments in internal cable routing

With prices starting at £10.00 to replace an externally fitted cable (parts and labour), its not that much more expensive for a standard internal cable to be replaced.

For some of the more expensive bikes fitted with Ultegra or Dura-ace, Spram and Campagnolo, there will be manufacturers recommended cables available, but the fitting cost is still the same.

If you would like an estimate, to discuss replacing your gear and brake cables with us or discuss any other repair contact us below
