What is your favourite part about fixing bikes?
It’s hard to say, I love putting all the parts together to create
a working bike, I enjoy that there are always new things to
learn and I enjoy sharing that knowledge.

What is your favourite tool?
Favourite tool … you can’t pick a favourite tool like you can’t pick a favourite child. My favourite tool is whichever one
I’m using or my next purchase.

What type of cyclist are you?
I enjoy most types of cycling. Currently riding mountain
bikes. Love living and riding in the Scottish Borders.
