"You can tell Neil has been around bikes for a long time. He had so many tips and tricks to pass on, even simple techniques about how to use tools that I hadn't even considered - things are easier when you are shown how and given the opportunity to do it yourself! He was extremely patient and gave easy to follow advice. I certainly have much more confidence now."
