My bike was damaged when I fell over unclipped on a steep hill on a Dartmoor back road when cycling on a long 2 day group ride. As I was unable to change into lower gears I had to get transported to the nearest bike shop in Tavistock in order to get back on the road. The shop owners saw at once what was wrong and were happy to look at it immediately. The damage was sorted in no time plus a few other quick adjustments were made to my bike set up including Di2. I was only charged £5 - cheap at twice this price. Great service from an experienced bike mechanic.

About 10m off the Devon Coast 2 Coast path (NCN 27) in Tavistock so very convenient if you need some assistance as I did. Martin was very busy with a bike build but managed to find time to sort my problem out and have us on our way again. Friendly & knowledgeable, thoroughly recommended.
