This is basically a promotional blog post for a mate of mine who’s an excellent mechanic, based in Bulwell, Nottingham. Jim Byatt of Build Cycle Works offers quality servicing, repairs, bike builds, a full range of wheel repairs and bespoke or off the shelf wheel building.

Jim has been a bike mechanic for over 17 years, and has built, serviced, and repaired most of my bikes (as we all know, the proper number of bikes to own is N+1), serviced my suspension forks and shocks, and he’s built some super strong wheels for me too – I’m a bit heavy on rear wheels, but anything Jim builds holds up way better than anything that I’ve bought elsewhere.

His workshop is open on weekdays, and he offers drop-off and pickup times to suit busy people. Build Cycle Works can also supply a great range of spares like chains, cables and bearings as well as products from brands like Rotor, KMC, Schwalbe, Continental, Miche, Huck Norris and many others.

Contact Jim at or on 07445467305 for any of your cycling needs!
