Hand building wheels is often thought of as a ‘black art’, a ‘dying trade’.
Wheel building is the craft of putting several individual components together to build a strong, long lasting wheel.
Denton’s was renowned for it’s wheel building service, and that service continues.

Custom Training Packages
Do you want to understand a particular topic in more detail? Arrange a custom session tailored to you.
Dr Bike ‘Pop Up’ Sessions
These short sessions are popular in businesses and organisations. They provide safety checks or basic adjustments in the workplace. Each bike receives a safety summary and bike condition report.
Any issues I find that can’t be fixed on the day can be arranged and carried out later.
Vintage Bike Repairs & Consultation
I served my time as a mechanic, repairing bikes of a certain age while being trained by mechanics and cyclists from the 40s and 50s. I’ve immersed myself in these bikes for the last 30 years. From budget entry level, to professional road and MTB, where detail is key. I can carry out mechanical repairs, deal with frame issues, and provide advise on parts and compatibility issues.

Bike Builds (Boxed & Custom)
Bought a new bike in a box – I’ll assemble it and make sure it is safe and properly adjusted. Alternatively, you might have a project, a frame, a groupset and finishing kit, and want it built professionally.
Whenever I can, I sell a mix of vintage and current bike parts, frames and accessories on Facebook and eBay.
