2018 was our busiest season yet and there was no let up even over the festive period and the New Year. That said we are still working on new products to add to the Profin portfolio.
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!
Profin Shock Bush Tool – MB Bearings of Blackburn are now a stockist!
We have been using shock bushing tools made by various manufacturers for some years and we found all had their issues(especially price). We decided to design manufacture our shock bus tool own right here in Lancashire.
The aim was simple, produce the best shock bushing tool on the market and keep costs low enough for the home mechanic.
We left a sample with John at MB Bearings for him to try out and he decided to put a bulk order in with us.
