MTB Shock Bushings, an expensive problem we wanted to fix.
If you ride a full suspension mountain bike at some point you will need to change your MTB Shock Bushings and they are not cheap. For what is a metal pin, a D.U. bush and a couple of spacers replacing shock bushes is a relatively expensive exercise.
We decided to make the best quality hardest wearing MTB Shock Bushings at the best price anywhere in the World, in house.
Spokes and Gears – now a Profin stockist
We met Tom a few years ago whilst he was employed at another bike shop. Since then Tom established his own mobile mechanic business which benefits from a physical workshop in Great Eccleston. He’s a genuinely knowledgeable mechanic and a really nice guy who has earned himself a decent reputation within the local cycling community.
Tom is now stocking MTB shock bushes and tooling for sale. He’s also be attending The Northern Grip Festival on 7th July 2018 at which he will be offering his services as a mechanic and selling lots of goodies from the main arena (including Profin components).
Make sure you say “Hi” if you see him!
