Hi Paul & Team, Just contacting you to say a big thank you for the wheels you built for me last week (Open Pro, Campag hubs). Couldn't be happier with the quality of the build (as always) and with the really quick turn around on getting the wheels to me. I really hadn't expected them to be back within a week of sending you over the parts. Always a real pleasure to deal with your company and to be riding around on another set of trouble free and reliably built wheels. Thanks very much indeed for the exemplary service. I just wish your bike shop was closer so I ..
When it came to buying a new bike, I had no hesitation in coming to Hewitt Cycles. Previous experience meant that I knew that I would have a bike that fitted and would be well and truly up to all the demands I would place on it. On coming down to Leyland, Paul and I discussed what sort of riding I would be doing and what my preferences were. I ride quite a few of the hillier sportives every year, interspersed with an annual trip to France and the occasional multi day event like the Raid Pyrenean. It was decided that ‘Columbus Life’ tubing offered the best compromise between ride characteris..
Paul/Andy, A bit of a long overdue thanks to you both. I ordered a custom Alpine frame from you back in June 2008 after dropping in for a fitting en-route to Scotland from Bristol. Given that I'm 5'10" but with a 34" inside leg, I've always had a daft drop from saddle to bars on frames I was told were my size. It's been a total revelation having a bike that fits perfectly and eats up the miles without any issues. It didn't get a huge amount of use in the first couple of years for various reasons but it's now been truly tested doing: - Mont Ventoux (stripped down without..
Paul I wanted to drop you an e-mail to say that I will be a Hewitt Cycle customer for life. Having taken up the challenge of an Ironman as a non-cyclist, the 112 mile cycle was going to be difficult to achieve in the allocated time of an Ironman event. Having struggled with my bike for nine months, a friend suggested Hewitt Cycles for a bike fitting to improve performance. Throughout the bike fitting I was able to discuss cycling issues and get valuable advice. As a consequence of my fitting with Paul, there was a dramatic improvement in both the speed and comfort of my cycling...
Subject: repair to my broken bike Hello to Paul and your Staff ..who assisted me by repairing my bottom bracket /checking the gears on my MBK bike..it was friday 5th August when your team put me back on the road to complete the Land-End/ John O-Groats cycle ride....Please lets your Staff know I was very impressed by their standard of workmanship/professionalism..I could not have completed this ride without your help..... Regards Jim Grant ..
Paul Bloody brilliant - you are a true professional. Many Thanks ..
Hi Paul, Thanks for the useful info and for getting back to me. In fact I found out that they are standard V brakes at Halfords so that’s OK but also the advice on tweaking the brake tension is much appreciated. By the by, when you were measuring us for the bikes, you suggested that my wife’s right and left leg measurements were different. In fact it turns out that you were spot on (2 cms) as this was subsequently confirmed by an orthopaedic surgeon and was the cause of having to have a right hip replacement. Many thanks, Ian Murray ..
Hi Paul Hope you and the team are well. Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know how well we're getting on with our Cheviotts you built for us a few months back. We had a great cycle back to London, no punctures, lots of hills and a bit of sunshine. The bikes really are great - I've attached a few pics... Best Greg and Georgia ..
Hi Paul, just wanted to say a huge thankyou for all the time you spent with me today, sorting my bike fit. You are a true professional and it shone through today. I knew I was in good hands when I saw the shirt from Wiggo on the wall, thanking you for the wheels! It was a real education watching you work and I learned a great deal about how to set a bike up. I really appreciate the fact you spent two hours sorting me out and not once did I feel rushed- even when the next bike fit customer turned up. I will let you know how I get on Paul- many thanks once again. I am l..
Paul, Finally found time! I had the Yukon custom-built by Hewitts 5 years ago. I wanted a dedicated Audax bike which would not be too heavy with mudguards and a pannier rack fitted. As I am 6’10” tall it needed to be something special… Going the Titanium route was an easy choice, as Paul had previously supplied me with an excellent MTB from the same supplier. I was also confident that the bike would fit: Paul set his jig to my dimensions (including a 40” inside leg!), and his calculations dictated that the frame geometry would have to be a combination of angles. As it would ..
Hi Paul, Just to tell you that Catford Hill went well with the Eno/Mavic Argent 7 wheel you built for me a couple of weeks ago. I was slightly over-geared with 56.7GI fixed, but a decent result for first attempt - 39th overall in 2.29 and 6th vet. Now that I know the hill I can do better next year. Results:http://www.catfordcc.co.uk/hillclimb/results.aspx?sm=16_6 It was the first time I used your wheel and it went perfectly. Thanks again Olivier ..
Paul, Hope you got the message that my wheels arrived today. Really pleased with them. They are works of art. Hope the Royce hubs give as good a service as the Royce BB you put on my touring bike. I think you may have heard I had your road bike re-sprayed by Mick at Autostrada. Not only does it ride well it looks good too. Can't understand why Campag no longer do silver components. Our TT season starts next week so with your wheels I should be flying! Thanks again for all your help over the years. Yours aye, Bill ..
