UK suspension guru Tim Flooks is selling his business, TF Tuned Shox. But it's being bought by his business partners Martin Palmer and Ian Kennedy, and Tim will continue to lead the servicing team.
Tim, who owns the business with his wife Helen, said they were selling it "to ensure continued growth". Ownership will transfer to a new company formed by Martin and Ian, Tec Frontiers Ltd, next month. Tim will remain with the firm as technical director.
He said: "It’s great to have found new owners in Ian and Martin as they have the commercial experience to continue the successful growth of TF Tuned. I’ll be free to keep our technical expertise and customer service as high as ever, while the guys focus on taking the business to its next level. I’ll also be able to ride my bike a bit more!"
Martin said: "Tim and Helen and their excellent staff have built a great business. Our plans aren't for any major changes, rather to continue what they've started. We intend to ensure that TF Tuned becomes widely recognised as the only place to go in the UK and Europe for all matters relating to mountain bike suspension”.
Speaking about the future, he added: “We're committed to all the staff, customers, suppliers and sponsored riders. Our job is to grow the great service on offer via www.tftuned.com and to make sure all serious mountain bikers know about TF Tuned so they can get the most out of their suspension and riding."
