Cycle Tech Oldham, the next step

Cycle Tech Oldham, The Next Step!

Now 2016 is almost over I have had time to reflect on the past couple of years, taking the big step of moving into a “Bricks and Mortar” shop. Then moving again into a bigger shop just over a year later.  The customer feedback as been fantastic and I think everyone likes the new shop.  I am not the type of person who likes to sit still, so what next, where do i take Cycle Tech Oldham in 2017?

I hope 2017 will be as exciting as 2016 as we will be adding Bike Fitting and Maintenance training to what we currently do, of course this will mean taking on extra staff, hopefully Elliot will be starting full time when he leaves College next year and we will be looking for a full time apprentice.  On a personal level I want to give something back to the local area as its the local customers who have helped me build up Cycle Tech Oldham, therefore we will be offering works experience placements to local Schools and Colleges.

Another way we are giving something back to our customers and the local community is that we are launching a Crowdfunder Project in early 2017.  The Crowdfunder Project will be to fund building a Training room for the Maintenance classes and building a dedicated Bike Fit room.

I am still working on the rewards (any ideas are welcome) but hopefully they will be rewards that potential supporters will want and want to get on board with the new project

On a final note I want to say a Big Thank you to every customer who as been into Cycle Tech Oldham over the last few years, wish you all a Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year

If you have any questions or would like any further information on the Crowdfunder project the please contact me below

Shimano Di2 Firmware updates and diagnostics at cycle tech oldham

Shimano Di2 Updating and Diagnostics

All computers from time to time require updates to keep them working at their best.  Shimano Ultegra and Dura-ace Di2 are the same.

Any bikes with a Shimano Di2 Group set should have the firmware updates carried out by a Shimano trained Technician.

Shimano release updates periodically which range from an increase in battery life, smooth gear change and general updates therefor keeping your bike working as it should.

An advantage of a computer system is the fact it helps you to find a fault.  As a result of this a Technician can diagnose any faults with a Shimano system.  Quick and accurate diagnostics will result in customers saving time and cash.

All Cycle Tech Oldham staff have been on a Shimano training course and we use Shimano equipment.  In addition updates and Diagnostics can be done whilst the customer waits if pre-booked in.

We can convert most bikes to Di2, If you would like a competative quote, or if you would like any further info about updates or repairing any faults you may have please contact us below

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
