    a friend of mine did
    never went back to them

    I use to pop in there alot when i lived close (3 miles)
    they even had my bike there for sale at one point but it was looked after

    They turn around loads of bikes, 2 many for what the workshop can deal with
    there use to only be about 3 maybe 4 in there if that

    I didn't realise they took them to spenders! Nathan's quite sound, i would have just gone straight there if i'd known. Ended up getting it all done at RJS (or summut like that) with the dudes at mallory park. Them guys are legends! did it for half the price and he set my suspension up for my weight for next to bugger all!

    I had Pro tyre dent my wheel in 2 places fitting a tyre.

    Luckily it was a first fit from new and they always check the wheels before and sign their form to say they checked it for damage.
    When the wheel came back dented they couldn't dispute it and had to have it repaired.

    My advice is ask them to check over your wheel first and then write down any marks so they can't dispute it afterwards.

    As spoonz said, in future, get your wheel faults listed before anyone new can touch it, i had a brand new wheel out of motts in basingstoke after some twat there trashed a wheel on my new bandit.

    Took some fighting, and got a new wheel in the end, stand up for your rights and don't be fobbed off, you know they are tossers, you know you aint going back there again, so go for it and really upset them, and get a new wheel
