BikeRadar Live: Free servicing with Chain Reaction

Get your bike spannered by the pros

Free servicing at the Chain Reaction Cycles Bike Clinic, Europe’s biggest stockist of specialist cycling components, will be offering free servicing and repairs to all riders at BikeRadar Live.


The Chain Reaction Cycles Bike Clinic will run throughout the weekend, and visitors will only have to pay for parts.

Priority will be given to cyclists taking part in events like the Cycling Plus Sportive supported by Pacific Outdoor Equipment, Devil Takes the Hindmost race and MBUK Eliminator dual slalom, but all are welcome to have their bikes tweaked and tuned.

What Mountain Bike magazine’s product editor Justin Loretz, who is taking part in the Whyte Night enduro race, said: “It’ll be great to have a team of qualified mechanics on hand to repair and fit parts to riders’ bikes. Whether you need an upgrade or simply need your gears tuned to perfection, the guys at the Chain Reaction Cycles Bike Clinic will be able to help.”
