It is just over five years since Jake's Bikes opened for business

 

In the last 5 years we have:

  • Sold more than 800 reconditioned used bikes

  • Taught bike maintenance skills to over 100 people in our tuition sessions

  • Serviced or repaired thousands of bikes for our customers

Potted History

2008: Jake rented one tiny corner of a freezing cold carpenter's workshop in Montpelier and started repairing bikes for people part-time.

2009: Relocated to a larger (and warmer) workshop in Hamilton House; employed mechanic Pete Harding.

2010: Started running evening classes in bike maintenance; began to keep more used bikes in stock instead of building them to order.

2011: Moved to new premises in Haymarket Walk which has a shop front as well as a workshop, and first Yael then Andy joined the team.

2012: Invested in a fleet of hire bikes; Colin joined the staff; continued to build up our stock of new and used parts

2013: Looking forward to the next 5 years and beyond!
