Reggie Gets A Surprise Facelift

And he is shining like a new penny. I only took him down to the repair shop to investigate a wobbly back wheel due to another spoke becoming loose… but when I collected him earlier today they had cleaned him, replaced the brake pads and cables, a worn back tyre (which had seen me through the 3,000 kms of Eurovelo 5) and have polished him until he shines. Almost like new again. I was almost happy to pay the 80 quid they charged me!

  1. Thats good value servicing!
    Last time I got mine professionally serviced and set up was 2005. They freed the back brake, replaced the gear cable outers, set it up and charged me ยฃ110. Ouch. Soon learned the value of learning how to do it myself. My car service costs about that to this day.

What do you think?
