I did an internet search hoping to find somewhere to have my mtb repaired and serviced, after being bitterly disappointed by several different shops in the past i wanted someone who i could rely on and more importantly trust to do the work to properly. After reading the feedback on the bicycle buddy website i decided to take a chance a give it a go. I was so glad that i did, Chris is such a nice guy i immediately felt at ease dealing with him and we discussed everything that i needed for the bike, sorting out the work required and the time to complete was a breeze, even when there was a slight delay with the parts needed (Out of Chris' control) Chris had the decency to get in touch and keep me informed of the progress, which is exactly what you need when doing business. The work done was first class and the price was more than reasonable, I will never take either my mtb or road bike anywhere else in future. If you need anything doing with your bike, check this guy out, you won't be disappointed.

Top marks to Chris for providing such an excellent service, prompt and friendly... I highly recommend him to anyone who needs work or repairs carrying out on their bike. <br />
<br />
Extra points awarded for identifying and curing an annoying noise a previous bike mechanic had told me was "one of those things you have to put up with".<br />
<br />
My bike is once again running like a Rolls Royce, thanks Chris!

I saw the bicycle buddy advert in a magazine a couple of years again and thought what a great idea and kept the advert. This year a group of us decided to do the coast and castles route going from Newcastle to Edinburgh so I dug out the advert and gave Chris a call and he couldn't be anymore helpful. He offered as much support as you want. He was punctual and made two pick ups in the Doncaster area and took us directly to the start point of the tour. Took photos that David Bailey would be proud of ( well I maybe slightly exaggerating this ). On the final day we gave him a rough time as to when we would get to Edinburgh but he told us not to worry too much about this. When we finally got to the end I text him our destination and within half an hour he was there putting our bikes in the back of the van while we finished our celebratory drinks. The top bloke even took us to the local KFC before heading back home......Thanks Chris we'll be in touch when we organise our next challenge

I have just bought 2 new bikes, a full suspension MTB and a road bike, I am new to MTB'ing and new to carbon frames, so I knew that my spanner skills weren't going to be enough to get the bikes from the box to the road.

I had read about Bicycle Buddy some time ago and found Chris via Google, we booked an appointment the next day, and he came out bang on time, found our place(a feat in itself!) got everything sorted, including stabilisers on my sons new bike and had plenty of good advice and tips (I'm a newbie to MTB ownership, and a lapsed road cyclist....).

I can't recommend Chris highly enough: he's a lot more reasonable than some bike shops for service charges etc, and he comes to you. He doesn't even drink a lot of tea!

I will definitely be using him for services etc from now on, and I'm hoping to try out his travel support services as well sometime. Excellent all round, many thanks!

I cannot recommend Chris highly enough. He has a great enthusiasm and knowledge of bikes, their maintenance and even cycle routes which he provided invaluable advice to me on.<br />
<br />
He comes to you, is friendly and really goes that extra mile to make sure you are totally happy with his work. He also accepts card payments which although small, saved me going to get the cash.<br />
<br />
He serviced my mountain bike and after a 40 miles ride, I can say that it was like having a new bike. I also asked him for advice regarding an old road bike I have had stored away for 15 years. He offered to take a look and to my amazement, a couple of tyres, some adjustments and a good clean has saved me the hassle (and cost) of looking for a new one.<br />
<br />
Chris is Professional, reliable and offers great value for money. I will certainly be using his services again and would recommend anybody with any bike problems, no matter how small, to contact Chris.<br />
<br />
Thank you once again

I used Chris for the first time today after reading the feedback on this site. I must say, the service was very professional and prompt. Chris turned up on time with his fully equipped van and took to fixing the issue within no time.

Not only does Chris fix the problem, he will also show you exactly what the issue is and how he has fixed it - Invaluable info for a newbie like me.

I would have no hesitation recommending this service to anybody. Definitely my future point of contact for any bike related issues.

Thanks to Chris we three had a fantastic weekend in October cycling on the Trans Pennine Trail between Carlton and York. The service, support and company were excellent.

We were nervous novices who wanted to prove something to ourselves. Chris was incredibly encouraging, calm and positive. He planned a route for us which was absolutely perfect in terms of no hills and hardly any traffic!! He collected us all from our respective homes and took us to the starting point - meeting us en route at various points. He ensured the bikes were in perfect working order and that they were just right for us.

We hope to repeat the experience next Spring. As Chris has built our confidence perhaps there is no limit to what we can achieve - the whole of the TPT - here we come!!!

Thanks Chris - you were superb.

You've heard of Glamping?
Well this is 'Gliking'!

We are a group of four girls (well 'older' girls) who used Chris as support on our Trans Pennine Trip last weekend. From start to finish Chris's support was fantastic. We found him to be knowledgeable, practical, supportive, very friendly and easy going. The Bicycle Buddy bus is very well equipped and well thought out ( we especially liked the cool box with drinks and chocolates in it !)

Chris went beyond our expectations and this combined with very competitive prices and providing us with that all important peace of mind has led us to asking him to support us again next year on our Way of the Roses trip.

Many, many thanks Chris - we had great fun and all enjoyed your company.

Lucy, Helen, Deb and Caz
