Cycle Hub Bearings

I took a call the other day from a cyclist who was looking for a set of bearings for a bicycle. He explained that he had bought a set of bearings on Ebay and they hadnt lasted very long and he wanted to know what I could offer to replace these bearings.. In many cases the bearings supplied on Ebay are of Far Eastern origins and are very cheap but are not good for demanding applications. No bearing will last for ever but a quality bearing  will stand up to the rigours of modern day cycling so much better.

If you want reliable cycling, fit reliable bearings, fit SKF, NSK, INA, NTN-SNR. Call us  today. You may be surprised as to the cost and we can supply in most cases in 24 hours or less.

My customer took delivery the next morning of four INA bearings. Remember!! You get what you pay for!!

Settled in and ready to roll.....................

Well it has been seven days now since we took the keys to our new premises and I have to say that it has been hard work getting everything in place. I have been entirely reliant upon an ipad and an iphone but today Open Reach have set up the phone lines and very soon we will have fibre broadband to go with it.

With all modern conveniences we can take your enquiries by a variety of means. Email, phone, fax at any time of the day, we are here to take your enquiry.

Drives & Controls Exhibition Part 1

I visited the Drives & Controls Exhibition at The NEC recently. I had never had the chance to go before and, I have to say, I didnt really know what to expect. What I did know was that there were a number of companies exhibiting that were either past or current suppliers to myself. When you are sat in an office most of the day talking to "voices" it is very nice to meet those "voices" face to face. Much of the exhibition focussed on hydraulics, pneumatics, tools and linear technologies but I met people who I do business with on a regular basis including the power transmission side of the business. I particularly enjoyed talking to people at the KOBO stand and was impressed with one of the guys who specialised in leaf chains for forklift trucks. He explained the various types of chain that can be supplied to suit different FLT applications and how they can generally supply specific applications at very short notice. If you have a requirement why not call ourselves and we can arrange direct delivery to yourselves.
