Hello, My name is Iain and i am 41, from Somerset.
I have just found this site though a link from a cycling forum.
I want to learn how to service my bike to keep costs down !!
I have 2 bikes both tourers, Dawes karakum and a Raleigh Pioneer Venture.
I want to do a full service on the Raleigh as it is well over due.
The Karakum will have to be done @ the LBS as it is on the cycle to work scheme.
As it is basically on hire so I will need it to be done by an LBS to keep my employers happy.
