Wow! Another year nearly over and it’s been another great, but very busy, year for Finely Tuned Ride. We’ve welcomed many, many new customers onboard this year, mainly thanks to loyal FTR customers spreading the word about Finely Tuned Ride’s services and brands; you really can’t buy that kind of publicity, so a big thank you for all your support.
Due to the increase in work, FTR took on an apprentice in June, called Ed, who is working in the shop/workshop and has been a great help from the start assisting with keeping turnaround times down.
FTR has also been working hard, delivering various rider services (custom bike builds, dynamic bike fits, maintenance courses, event support) and adding some new, mainly UK, brands to add to, and compliment, the existing brands we had from day one (Cotic, Hope, Torq, Juice Lubes etc). The main new brands are:
- Kinesis bikes (Road, Cross & MTB)
- Exposure lights (incl bar, helmet & commuter demo lights)
- Prologo Saddles and accessories (incl ‘Try & Buy’ men’s and women’s saddles)
- Evoc (great bike & rider bags/luggage)
- Invisiframe (Frame/parts protection).
Next year’s calendar is starting to fill up with some events support already booked. Additionally we’re looking to expand further, including another bike brand so watch this space!
Christmas opening times!
As it is a time for catching up with friends, family and eating too much, FTR will be closed for most of the Christmas holiday; mainly so we can ride our bikes instead of having to fix them as well as catch up on some much needed socialising. If your bike needs a service, or you think it might need looking at before Christmas, PLEASE ring and book it in as the workshop is still very busy and there are only a few slots left in the calendar for the year. We will be open as follows:
|Monday 22nd December||1000 – 1730|
|Tuesday 23rd December||1000 – 1730|
|Saturday 27th December||Closed|
|Sunday 28th December||SPAM Winter Challenge|
|Monday 29th December||Emergency repairs only, call to arrange.|
|Tuesday 30th December||Emergency repairs only, call to arrange.|
|New Year’s Eve||Closed|
|New Year’s Day||Closed|
|Friday 2nd January||Emergency repairs only, call to arrange.|
|Saturday 3rd January||Emergency repairs only, call to arrange.|
All that’s left to say from FTR and the team is have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Wrap up warm and stay safe out on the trails.
Here’s to a another successful year in 2015.
