Elite and Zwift Demo Evening

Thursday, 13 December 2018 from 18:30-20:30

Are you bored of churning out the endless miles on the turbo with one eye on the clock and the other on the wall? Look no further with the new smart training methods from Zwift using the latest Elite Turbo Trainers.
On the 13th of December at 6:30pm we are hosting a smart training workshop, on the night you’ll learn how you can transform your smart training using the latest innovations from Elite and Zwift.

Brand representatives from Elite and SIS nutrition will be hosting an interactive demo with both Elite Products and Zwift. There will be a detailed talk explaining the key features, benefits and initial set up of the products. You’ll get the chance to ask the experts any burning questions or queries, and maybe even challenge your friends to a KOM on the night! No equipment needed, but if you do want to bring your own pedals/shoes for testing then you’re very welcome.

There will also be free samples, information and advice about nutrition for training and exercise from our brand representative form SIS nutrition.

Join us on Thursday 13th December at 6:30pm. There will be free refreshments on the night!

Superb turnaround on a Saturday wheel fix using the weekend drop in workshop. By Sunday afternoon we were pushing hard towards An Cladach a remote bothy on the eastern side of Islay.

Can’t say enough thanks for the team at Blazing Saddles! In town for a short trip, and without a bike. They were wonderful, with providing. E not only a perfect bike at a great rate, but also took the time to suggest some good local trails. Thanks again to the team. Special thanks to Allen, Anna and Beau.

Brilliant shop with loads of quality products. I went in for workshop stuff and there was way more stuff than pretty much any other shop I’ve been in. The staff were really helpful and the mechanic was happy to pass on his knowledge too.

We called yesterday as my wife had a puncture on her ebike.We couldn’t find our spanner so we bought one here along with a new inner tube.The staff were so helpful they offered us any help we needed and gave us a track pump to blow tyre up.They also asked if we wanted to go inside to fix as it was starting to rain.The staff were very genuine and well clued up on bike components.I would definately recommend this shop anyone.There isn’t many places where you will get genuine help like that these days.

From the first visit to the Cragg Vale Shop to discuss ebike, with a second for a test ride and the final to collect my new bike the service was 5 star

Just looking forward to all the rides I have planned, once the sun decides to play out

Steve Lee – 4 stars
Took my road bike in for a service and it’s been transformed. It rides brilliantly and genuinely feels better than new.

Service cost was very reasonable, especially when you factor in the lengths the guys went to in degreasing the bike and getting her back into shape.

Highly recommended.

Stacey MacNaught – 5 stars
These guys are awesome… set off on a towpath ride from Hebden Bridge to Manchester this afternoon. Unfortunately, just a mile outside of Hebden, I had something of a mechanical mishap with my pedal crank! The guys got it sorted and even lent us a lock (left without one – fail!) to leave my other half’s bike there so we could go get a cuppa while we waited.

Really friendly and very knowledgeable.

Thanks guys!
