Hi, Welcome to the bit about me and Unleashed Cycles. My name is Gary, I am a freelance bicycle mechanic working in the cycling trade. I have over twelve years experience in the cycle trade and training from trade approved bodies including; ATG and Weldtite giving me Cytech credibility. At Unleashed Cycles there is a fully equipped workshop which I use, housing some unique tools to help fix your bikes. I specialise in all kinds of repairs and bike servicing, but am also a very competent wheel builder with qualifications from DT Swiss.
I pride myself on completing unusual jobs, so am willing to tackle any problem you may have. I stock top brands including Sram, Shimano, Fat Spanner, Avid and Raleigh; our workshop is fully equipped for all your cycling needs. Unleashed Cycles also has support by Sram Technical Center for matters relating to Sram, Rockshox and Avid.
My passion is cycling. I first learnt how to ride a bicycle at the age of 4 with the help of my parents. This was a bad move on their behalf because they couldn’t get me off the bike again. This progressed to BMX and dirt jumping bikes. I am very passionate about the extreme side of cycling, idolizing riders at the time like Giant’s Rob Warner, Steve Pete and BMX star TJ Lavin. Even now, I am still known to ride at the local dirt jumps and skate parks. These days, my heart lies closer to mountain biking and road riding. After trying may types of mountain bikes, my preferred model at the moment is a hard-tail Cannondale. I also ride a Trek Domane road bike which I will undoubtedly be caught on in the workshop, hooked up to my turbo trainer in the winter!
I have completed Level One and Two Cytech training. This covers thee main aspects of your cycle, including wheel building, Steering assemblies and drive systems. I am also very competant with hydruallic brake systems. The qualifications, along side my experience working in a retail shop and workshop helps me complete every job brought to me to the highest standard possible.
I like to offer a few extra services, in order to keep all cyclists in the saddle no matter what. If you have any worries, or you want your bicycle checking before any ride or event, please drop in so I can take a look. I can do pre-checks for free! I also offer all Warwickshire District Council Workers (including Teachers) and NHS, Fire and Police workers a 10% discount off the total invoice cost. This gives you money off both the labour and parts! Just bring down some proof of ID and claim your discount.
I can also help you in looking after your own bike. I am willing to answer any questions, or give you any demonstrations and advice for caring for your bike. I can also offer maintenance evenings for you and your friends. Included within these sessions would be care advise and basic setup of your bicycle. Don’t worry, tea and biscuits will be supplied! If this interest you, then feel free to get in touch to discuss.
I really want to pull cycling into the 21st century, away from the greasy mechanics and cluttered shops, but still retain the customer service everybody deserves. All bikes brought to our Warwick workshop will be booked in, completed and delivered back to you by myself. With my system, you will know exactly what is going on with your bicycle and a point of contact in any case. This is a model I will continue as the business grows. I am contactable between 8am – 7pm. I am also very flexible so please feel free to try at other times.
If service is what you require, please come and give me a try. I guarantee you will be impressed.
We are Unleashed to Service, Tune And Repair your Cycles.
