Are based in Ferryhill and although we ride aggressive XC & Freeride whatever you want to call it Ferryhill has one of the oldest cycling clubs Ferryhill Wheelers, Paul’s father was one of the early members (Still got some pictures, how he thought that those clothing designs looked good I’ll never know!)
Paul was brought into the business because of previous experience (here we go blowing his own trumpet!….Elaine) Paul ditched his RALEIGH CHOPPER for motor bikes at the age of 10 this led to him racing two wheel production bikes (and falling off a lot!…..Elaine) OK OK…. he moved onto 3 wheels ( not a kiddies trike!…paul) a motorbike + sidecar , after 4 years on the sidecar he did a spell in super karts & in 1987 he got into stock cars, after this he tuned motorcycle engines that won north east championships.
All this experience he has transferred to cycles suspension / hydraulic brakes / wheel building etc...
Elaine trained as a beautician and after she ran her beauty business for 6 months she decided it wasn’t for her (too much like hard work!.….paul) Her interest in bikes was rejuvenated when she started teaching her young son to ride, and now runs a full suspension bike and reckons this is more than just a little bit better than her old RALEIGH GRIFTER, she’s a little bit of a fair weather biker!
