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..
The Hewitt Aravis is a hugely impressive fast audax bike that doubles up as a fine winter machine – and we would even feel at home hammering around a road race circuit on it. Christmas Aravis – Cycling Plus ..
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 ..
Hewitt testimonial Just bought my second Hewitt custom built bike, a tourer. Paul is obviously very experienced and gives balanced advice and clear guidance. He deals with professional cyclists as well as relative novices (that’s me). He will try his best to obtain any product for you to meet your requirements. Paul is attentive to customer needs, approachable and easy to deal with. The final product is first class. I have no regrets and had no snags; notwithstanding the after sales service is excellent. The mechanics, who I was allowed to observe and ask questions of, as my tourer was ..
Having ridden the Trek last month, I thought things couldn’t get much better for the cycle tourist, but I was wrong. The Hewitt Cheviot comes in a hundred quid cheaper is absolutely beautifully finished – welding and paintwork impeccable – and doesn’t fall down anywhere. 2002 – Cycling Plus – Cheviot ..
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..
