Wigan, Greater Manchester
How long have you been cycling for?
I have been cycling on and off for about 10 years but dedicated cycling over the last 3 years.
What’s your top bike maintenance tip?
My top tip is cleaning your bike after use, especially in winter followed by water displacement aerosol and chain lube prolongs the life of your drive train and helps the bike run smooth even in the gloopiest of conditions.
What are your favourite Weldtite products?
My favourite products are the TF2 aerosol spray and the chain lube.
Where are your favourite locations to ride?
My favourite place to ride is Whinlatter in Keswick and Dalby. My local ride is Rivington near Bolton and trail is Gisburn.
What bike do you ride at the moment?
I am currently riding an Orange 5 Diva.
How often do you carry out bike maintenance?
Basic clean and lube after every ride and try to regrease moving parts at least once a month (headset, bearings etc.).
What do you love about cycling?
I love the single-track and the ability to fly down the hills with speed now I have improved my skills. I am also a British Cycling Breeze Ride Leader so I am keen to get women into cycling and enjoy all aspects of keeping fit and having fun.
This was the first time I had used a tool like this, always thought maybe a bit gimmicky, however, my opinion has really changed since trying it out!Read full review →
If I am picking a winner I am going for TF2 Dry Wax, as it’s easy to tell when it’s on the chain, it's a bit thicker so sticks to the rollers of the chain. Whilst I didn't notice any performance difference between the two, aesthetics win on the day for me.Read full review →
These are a quality piece of kit - a must have for on the trail or workshop!Read full review →
I pride myself on a clean drivetrain on my bike and use a stiff brush that is for drivetrain only and give it a good scrub when the bike gets cleaned. I thought that the chain scrubber would not have much impact on my chain! How wrong was I?Read full review →
I have been waiting patiently to test out the tyre removal and seating tool but unfortunately broke two fingers and torn ligaments on a MTB holiday in the Alps so didn't want to risk using it and hurting fingers more. However, being impatient as I am and the fingers taking their time to heal, I decided to give it a go!Read full review →
In the past, I have always used the edge of an old cloth to try and clean my cassette so I was very pleased when Weldtite took it to its obvious conclusion and created the G string. I used it on a particularly dirty 9 speed cassette and was amazed at the sparkling results achieved. I soaked it in a bit of cleaner and got behind each cog with the G string.Read full review →
The Viscosity is somewhere between wet and dry lube and the nozzle on bottle allows easy application without wasting any lube. It also soaks in very quickly and once applied, it quickly seeps into the chain between the rollers and plates of the chain.Read full review →
