CERTIFIED AEROC MASTER WHEEL BUILDER
I'm the owner, lead mechanic and wheel builder at K.O.M. Cycling. My journey here stems from a natural keen curiosity of how things work, which eventually led me to achieve a degree in Mechanical Engineering, working in the Aerospace industry as a stress engineer for 9-years.
I first got into cycling during my time at University and have been a keen road cyclist for about 12 years. My first foray into wheel building came in 2012 when I needed to re-dish a rear wheel to fit centrally in my frame. I then eventually fully dismantled and re-built the wheels; fast-forward to today, and combining my two passions of cycling and mechanics, I'm now a fully qualified bike mechanic, servicing and repairing all types of bikes and building wheels to high tolerances for customers regularly.
K.O.M. Cycling is a local bike shop and bike repair workshop set in the scenic town of Wotton-Under-Edge, situated at the southern edge of the Cotswolds. We offer a range of high-quality bikes and products with servicing, repairs, custom-builds, technical advice and evening workshops. We service anything from kids first pedal bike or an old steel-framed relic to the newest, highest spec MTB, road or E-bike- we don’t discriminate!
As the owner, I've been passionate about road cycling and have been servicing, repairing and upgrading bikes for many years. The idea of starting the shop finally came into fruition following redundancy from my job as an aerospace engineer, leading me to become a fully qualified bike mechanic, turning my passion for cycling into a career and filling the bike shop-shaped void in the local area.
K.O.M. Cycling is an independent bike shop with a focus on providing a bespoke and personal service for custom bike builds, and performance wheel builds. We offer a range of high-quality bikes, parts, accessories and riding essentials from well-known brands, and provide advice on anything cycling related.
