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

Shimano Free-hub upgrade at Cycle Tech Oldham

Customer dropped a 1980’s road bike in with a gear indexing fault, the bike is equipped with an early Shimano 105 group set and down tube Indexed shifters

After a quick inspection the rear cassette was found to be worn and bent, requiring a replacement, the early Shimano cassettes were a product called Uniglide and unfortunately the parts are no longer available unless you troll through ebay, but then you run the risk of getting already worn out parts.

The solution was to convert the Uniglide Freehub body to a more modern Hyperglide Freehub body which will allow any Shimano Hyperglide cassette to be fitted to the bike.

Upgrade complete, new cassette and chain fitted, gear change is like new again
