Cannondale and Raleigh

Having a new born baby in the house invariably means having to re-prioritise things for a while. However, when they’re old enough, it’s time to dust the bikes down and get them roadworthy again. This was the case for these two; a Cannondale and a Raleigh Bikes (complete with WeeRide). New Schwalbe tires Smart Sams for the Cannondale along with some drivetrain goodies from Shimano-MTB. Just a service and inner tube for the Raleigh #cannondalebikes #raleighbikes #shimanomtb #schwalbetires

Frog Bike

We do love a Frog Bikes – the lightweight kids’ bike here at Andy’s Bike Clinic. This one needed a new 彥豪金屬工業股份有限公司 Tektro Technology Corporation brake caliper along with some new Elvedes Bike Components brake and gear cables in readiness for the Cycle to School event a week ago #frogbikes #Tektro #Elvedes


Spiffy Scott bikes in for some TLC next. The chain and cassette were both past their best, so on went some Shimano-Road Ultegra goodness. The front tyre’s bead had really degraded, so we agreed that a Schwalbe tires Pro One Evo be fitted (tubeless). The PressFit bottom bracket was also past its best, so a new one was fitted along with some headset bearings #ShimanoRoad #schwalbetires

Specialized Globe

This Specialized Bicycles Globe was put in for a Premium Service and all the trimmings. The rear wheel rim was heavily worn, so a replacement was sourced with Shimano-MTB Deore hub, DT Swiss spokes and Mavic rim. Shimano-Road took care of the rear derailleur, cassette and new brake pads, whilst KMC Chain Europe provided the chain. Very happy the way this one’s turned out as it’s owner was absolutely spot on #specializedbikes #ShimanoRoad #KMC #dtswiss #mavicwheels

Giant Defy

This Giant Bicycles Defy needed a new gear hanger. Thankfully, the old one had done its job by protecting both the rear derailleur and the bike frame. The chain had been shortened so the bike could serve as an impromptu singlespeed, so a new Shimano-Road Tiagra chain was fitted, along with some super comfy Profile Design bar tape and some replacement cables to boot #giantbikes #ShimanoRoad


This Genesis Bikes came in a little the worse for wear. Shimano-MTB SLX cassette, SRAM road chainset, bottom bracket, rear derailleur pulley set and chain soon got things moving in the right direction. I also had to re-tap one of the caliper mounts as the threads had been crossed #genesisbikes #sramroad #shimanomtb #andysbikeclinic

Specialized Myka

This Specialized Bicycles Myka earns a fair amount of its keep getting its owner to and from the base of hills and mountains. So, it had to be dependable and in good working order. Unfortunately, the front derailleur had received an impact, which meant a replacement was necessary. Fiddly would be one way of describing getting the front derailleur correctly aligned, but we got there in the end! We took the opportunity to switch out the struggling rear derailleur at the same time, so new Shimano-MTB items all round. Replacement cables courtesy of Elvedes Bike Components kept these moving smoothly and accurately. All this was rounded off with a general service and check-over #specializedbikes #shimanomtb #Elvedes


This Schwinn Bicycles came in, or rather was collected from Linlithgow Rail Station, in one helluva state. The back wheel had buckled and folded over on itself. Thankfully its owner was OK, although rather shaken. So, we fitted some burlier, V section hybrid wheels from The Cycle Division Ltd and mated those to a set of Schwalbe tires Land Cruisers to soak up some of the bumps on the customer’s commute. New brake pads and cables from Elvedes Bike Components and the bike’s once again fit for purpose #schwinnbikes #Elvedes #TCD

Scott Sub 40

For when you have the best father-in-law in the world. This Scott bikes Sub 40 was gifted to its new owner by his father-in-law. Not content with simply handing it over as was, we agreed on a bit of a restoration project. New Schwalbe tires Marathons and tubes, some Elvedes Bike Components cables, KMC Chain Europe chain and Raleigh Bikes grips. It’s now setup as the ultimate commuter #scottbikes #kmcchain
