After trying a few bike shops yesterday and being told, sorry we're too busy I was getting very very worried that I wouldn't have a bike for SSUK at the weekend. So today during Ali's lunch break we drove over to Green Machine in Horwich. He looked at it straight away and soon had it moving, he showed me a tool that will help, so that is being added to my tool box. Then we found a part missing, so they made me a new one. They then put a new chain on for me and the bike is ready to go.
Thank you so much to Green Machine, a great LBS!
