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.
