WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
"The workshops enabled us to integrate our Central and Eastern European clients with others, which hadn’t always been possible in a classroom setting because of language barriers, so this was even more positive by providing a ‘hands on’ experience. All participants felt that taking part and seeing that they could reassemble bicycles improved their confidence and self-worth."
Lee Harris - Sifa-Fireside Co-Ordinator
Had my husbands bike sorted out ready to ride again after a long lay off. Brilliant service and very reasonable price. The guys went over and above what was needed. Great work.
Anne - Customer
Always friendly and welcoming, there's never any job too big or too small at Gear Up. They have fixed my bike many times and the job is always done in very good time to a high standard no matter what state I've managed to get my bike into!
