Cyclefit Workshop

One man and your bike

Posted by Barna Eichinger

12th January 2018

Hi Barna here, I'm the guy some of you may have seen popping in to the fit studio when Jules or Phil struggle with a tricky seat clamp or need some new handlebar tape fitting. I build all the bikes that Jimmy, Phil and Jules sell and also set up the bikes to the correct dimensions after a Cyclefit. I take care of all the servicing and repairs of customer's bikes. All of those gorgeous bikes in the Cyclefit Gallery have been lovingly assembled by my good-self.

I have been with Cyclefit since 2009 and been a cycle mechanic since 2005. I originally trained as an engineer back in Hungary while racing on the road and rode for the Hungarian National Cyclo Cross Team in my late teens. 

I'm a huge cycling fan (and a Gunner) and have recently purchased a Trek Emonda SLR for my annual trip to the Stelvio in May and use a Seven Axiom SL as my regular commuter bike.

Below are the workshop services that we offer at Cyclefit, please feel free to contact me if you require any further information.

Bike Maintenance & Repair Tuition

Learn your Di2 from your R2D2

I can't be with you out on the road if something goes wrong with your bike but I can teach you the bike maintenance fundamentals. Don't let a simple mechanical problem spoil your ride.

You can book time with me at Cyclefit and I will teach you what you need to know.

I can show you the basics of puncture repair and brake adjustment to the installation of electric gears or hydraulic disc brakes.

The hands-on tuition sessions are booked as two hour slots in the Cyclefit workshop and I will give you one-to-one instruction.
