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..
Paul I visited your shop on 17th December for a bike fitting. I am a novice cyclist having purchased a Trek Alpha 2.1 in July from a shop in my home town. After various visits and change of stem and various saddle adjustments (plus additional costs) the bike did not feel right and after increasing my distance I was starting to get some niggling pains. My cycling colleague recommended you and the rest is history. I was hugely impressed with the depth of knowledge and attention to detail that you demonstrated and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your servi..
We like this bike a lot, (Hewitt Cheviot SE) but what we partlcularly like is that it builds on the success of last year’s winner, the Cheviot. 2004 – Cycling Plus – Bike of the Year (Gold) ..
Dear Paul and all at Hewitt Cycles, It's been some time since I purchased an Alpine frame and forks from your shop, but I just wanted to to write to say how happy and satisfied I am with my new bike now that I have finally assembled it. I bought the frame last year after visiting your shop to get it measured and it took ages to get the parts together and get the bike finished but as you can see from the photo's I think it looks absolutely stunning. I had it painted in dark green metalic with Hewitt and World Champion decals adorning the frame and have tried to ..
I have had my Hewitt Chiltern now for a month and have covered 300 miles. I just wanted to say how thrilled I am with it. The bike has been flawless and the expert fitting you gave me ensured that I’m supremely comfortable on the bike. The Chiltern is my first road bike having commuted on various hybrids for over 10 years. I had been wanting to take the leap to a road bike for a number of years. However, I only have room for one bike where I live and need it to for fill a number of rolls. I still needed a bike that I could commute on, that could take a pannier, mud guards etc but also i..
When Paul Hewitt decided to build a tourer for the UK market, it would have been easy enough to churn out a copy of a classic such as the Dawes Galaxy or even the Trek, instead he set out to move tourer design on a bit and that is what clinches gold for the Cheviot.

Paul, I have been riding the new bike I collected on Saturday, and it is fantastic. It's the best bike I have ever ridden, and just a pleasure to get on the saddle and ride. I am very very pleased with it. Thank you for putting together such a great bike. Best regards Will. Will Treasure ..
TO my shame and regret, despite being a serious cyclist for 15 years and competing properly for a half dozen, I had never got around to undergoing a proper bike fit until a friend recounted his experience with Paul Hewitt and spoke glowingly of the impact it had made on his riding. Tempted also by the reasonable price - about the same as a racing tub - I travelled to Leyland to have road and TT bikes fitted and found it an interesting process. Paul regales you with as much, or as little, information as you need as he walks and talks you through the process of fitting, using the..
