At Opies, we’re firm believers in the fact that the bicycle is a classis and timeless invention. Just as important today as it was in 1817, when it was named a “gentlemans hobby horse” by its German inventor, Karl Drais. Of course, things have moved on slightly since then, and as technology has advanced, so has the modern day bicycle; it is far removed from its roots as a wooden frame, wooden wheels and a loop of rope connected by gears. Because of these advances in all aspects of the modern bike, maintenance is an important part of keeping all components running smoothly. This is where Fenwicks bicycle cleaning and maintenance products come in, now proudly stocked by Opies.
It’s often said that looking after a bike is rather like tending a small garden. Do nothing and the rust and weeds take over. Spend a little time on it at regular intervals and your bicycle will blossom. So to speak.
Keeping on top of bike maintenance is especially important in winter when wet, salted, gritted roads can accelerate wear and tear – A bicycle has all of its major working mechanisms on the outside, exposing them to the elements. However, this comes with the hidden bonus of giving you easy access for servicing and maintenance.
