The Owner

My name is Richard Marchmont and I love bicycles. Here are a few more facts about me:


  • I prefer going uphill to downhill, as I am a scaredy-cat.

  • The quickest I have traveled on a pedal-powered machine is 52mph using a recumbent tricycle and a very long hill. 

  • While getting annoyed at the design of the modern-MTB 1x drivetrain, I have extensively researched gearbox companies and ride a Pinion-equipped, titanium Olsen-frame hardtail. I will be selling Pinion-driven bikes from the summer 2022 onwards.

  • I commuted all year round between 10-20 miles a day for eight years using the tricycle for icy, windy and snowy days so I didn't have to use a car.


Apart from servicing and modifying my own bikes during the last 25 years, I am Cytech 2 qualified. This is an industry-standard qualification, recognised worldwide.


I also believe the key providing better service to customers is to continue to learn, and in 2023 will be adding Cytech 3 modules to my repertoire. For more details follow this link to Cytech.
