Specialist Wheel Building
A number of attributes such as even spoke tension, sufficient spoke tension, spoke stress relieved are built into the wheels by the wheel builder, something that only the human touch can do.
Wheel Tension Balancing is done by achieving a consistent overall wheel tension by analysing the spoke tension on a graph created by Spoke n’ Chain Worx. Balancing the relative tension produces a better-quality wheel, which is useful in diagnosing potential rim and wheel damage.
You will find that a hand-built wheel will stay true for longer.
Another advantage that hand-built wheels have over factory wheels is that when something goes wrong it can be easily fixed. If you were to damage a rim, for instance, a new similar rim can be easily sourced and at roughly the original cost. When a rim comes to the end of its life you can source a new rim and spokes and rebuild the wheel. Your wheel will be as good as new!
Also, the combination of hub and rim that you want may not be available off the shelf and therefore you can have the exact wheel that you want and in the colours that you want as well.
Part of the wheel building process is determining the correct spoke length, which is a service that we provide as part of the wheel build.

Dr Bike / Corporate Days
With organisations subscribing to Cycle to Work Schemes, with green initiatives being offered to companies to assist with reducing the carbon footprint, Spoke n’ Chain Worx work with local companies who believe in assisting staff who are commuting to work by bicycle.
We will set up our mobile workshop at your workplace offering services to employees as arranged prior to the day. We have found that the Basic Service, which includes a bike wash, has proved to be the most popular offering on Dr Bike days. We are flexible to adapt an offering according to your requirements.
There are a number of options that we can suggest for the day:
1. The organisation pays Spoke n‘ Chain Worx a rate for the time agreed and pre-agreed parts used.
2. The organisation pays Spoke ‘n‘ Chain Worx a rate for the time agreed and the
employee pays for the parts replaced on their bicycle.
3. The organisation offers a discounted rate to their employee on a service agreed, with the discount being paid to Spoke n’ Chain Worx by the organisation. The employee pays the discounted rate plus parts.
4. The organisation can arrange a day and promote Spoke n’ Chain Worx in the
organisation and the employee benefits from the convenience of having Spoke n‘
Chain Worx come to them at work and service on pre-arranged bikes or when it is convenient for them. The employee pays the full cost of the service and parts.
We are flexible and will work with your organisation to establish the best approach. If you would like to discuss the opportunity for Spoke ‘n’ Chain Worx to set up a Dr Bike day at your organisation, please call us on 07488332772 or email on email@example.com
At Sportives, Cycle Races and Triathlons we set up our mobile workshop before the event to take care of any last-minute adjustments, or punctures. We can also go out on the course during the event and assist with repairs needed by competitors during the event.
If you are planning a charity ride in the area, we can provide mechanical and vehicle support from the start to the end of the ride.
