The Hewitt Cheviot SE was my bike of choice for several Sustrans rides. where it was equally at home carving descents in the Pennines as it was cruising down unpaved bicycle paths. 2007 – Cycling Plus Awards – Cheviot SE & Aravis SL ..
Hi Paul, Just wanted to say how pleased I am with the Reynolds 953 stainless steel made to measure frame you supplied recently,from the outset the service I received was exemplary. Although I have some experience and thought I had my position about right,you were able,with judicious use of your measuring jig together with infinite patience, to bring about a slight `tweaking`of the said position for the better. Special mention should go to your resident frame builder Andy at this stage, he was able to take your measurements and produce a drawing of draughtsman standa..
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.

The Hewitt Cheviot SE is a superb touring bike, customised in terms of components and set up for my riding position, it’s hard to find any faults with it at all. 2006 – Cycling Plus – Cheviot SE ..
Dear Paul & team I come in around about 3 months ago and purchased a Ridley Orion Carbon Fibre bike. I'm am emailing to say thank you very much for your professionalism and second to none service ranging from the measure up and your in depth knowledge and advice on which bike was best for me to ensuring the bike was put together and ready for riding. I had some bad experiences buying bikes in the past from people who quite frankly didn't know what they were talking about so it was a real pleasure to come along and receive such a great service and sound advice. The bike is brill alt..
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 ..
The Hewitt Aravis SL is a great example of an audax/winter bike that could easily translate to more dedicated summer use. Shed those mudguards and you’ve got a light yet reliable machine. 2006 – Cycling Plus – Aravis SL ..
Dear Paul ,Your team at Hewitt cycle Builders. Just a short note to say thanks for the 100% professional job done on my new Van Nicholas titanium Bike. I have to admit here now , I did not like being stretched out so far forward , I ve been riding bikes for as very long time thought I was in the right position. Its turned out I was a million miles out. I have done a couple of hundred miles now , the bike fits me like a glove I can not believe how comfortable I am. The quality of this bike can not be described , your hand built wheels are superb..
