Hit & Run (5:20pm, Saturday, 2012-08-18): Driver of a Vauxhall Astra WANTED

Raham Saleem

Raham Saleem

There’s been a spate of hit-and-runs in this area recently.

We’ve actually got an customers’ bike in for (expensive) repairs at the moment following an incident at Hyde Park corner – the police have got an independent eye-witness and have written(!) to the  that driver to explain him/herself.

Then, last Saturday (same day as the incident below), on the corner of Norwood Mount & Grove, another cyclist was nearly hit by a silver, Astra at about 4pm, driven by a woman using her mobile phone. We’ll be informing the police ASAP about that event.

The following incident is of particular disgust.

From http://uk.news.yahoo.com/children-critical-hit-run-023455596.html:

Raham Saleem, two, and his sister Sabam were struck as they walked home after buying onions for the family’s Eid celebrations.

West Yorkshire Police said the driver of the silver Vauxhall Astra slowed down to see what had happened after hitting the children in the Hyde Park area of Leeds on Saturday evening, then sped away from the scene. …

Detectives know the car is a mark four model, meaning it was made between 1998 and 2005. …

This is a small, close-knit community and people want to help,” the detective said.

To the driver:

Give yourself up – it will only be a matter of time before you’re caught.

Not taking repairs until 25th August 1012 (except for our regular customers)

Apologies to all cyclists and our (potential) new customers. We cannot accept any new requests for repair work until the 25th August.

The above does NOT apply to our regular customers!

The GOOD news: We will try to continue our “Whilst You Wait” service for small repairs (e.g. fit new inner tubes, fit new wheel(s), etc.).

Although we hardly advertise, we are (again) inundated with bicycle repairs.

So, we will NOT be taking any more repairs in until 18th August 2012 (Saturday).

Our apologies to all cyclists

Glorified Sport ‘Day’

Just so that you know where we stand:

Do your own research.

See the hype.
See the propaganda.
See the lies.
See the cost to the British taxpayers.
See the corporatisation of Britain.
See the VIP (Very Important Parasites) lanes.
See the missiles.
See the polished turd.

Anyway, isn’t it all a bit war-like xenophobia (nations versus nations)?

 
 

1993: Busy time for Mr. Clips

Here’s clipping from the local toilet paper from 1993 (thought you might be interested):

And here’s the enlarged version:

 

Emmerdale: The Bicycles

For over 10 years we have been fettlin’ the bicycles used by the Emmerdale cast. The production company’s brief is very simple: make sure the bikes are safe, efficient and effective – don’t tart them up!

We’d like to think that the reason for the production company to use us is because we are either:

  • good at what we do (and/or)
  • timely (and/or)
  • reasonably-priced.

Anyway here’s the pics – see if you can spot any.

 

 

 

 

The following is one you probably wont have seen – it will appear in a near-future episode (sorry, no spoiler).

Please note: Emmerdale do not necessarily endorse us. They just continue to use us.

As a way of saying a big ‘Thank You’ to one of most loyal customers, we will be giving a 10% discount on all future works.

THANK YOU to Emmerdale

from the team at Re-Cycle Engineering

 

Now accepting repairs (Monday, 25th June 2012)

Title says it all.

A bit like this fellow:

 
 

NOT taking repairs until 25th June 2012

 

Further to our last post, we have inundated with repairs at the mo’.

So, we will NOT be taking any more repairs in until 25th June 2012.

Our apologies to all cyclists

The above does NOT apply to our regular customers!

The GOOD news: We will try to continue our “Whilst You Wait” service for small repairs (e.g. fit new inner tubes, fit new wheel(s), etc.).

 

 
 

We’ve become the fortunate victims …

  • Each year we repair over 3,000 bicycles.
  • 95% of our new customers arrive via ‘word-of-mouth’ recommendations.
  • We do not need to advertise.

For the past 5 years we have experienced and ever-increasing demand for our services.

No matter what we try, more and more and more and more cyclist are turning to us for their repair and upgrade works.

This trend appears to be over-and-above the increase in cycling in the Leeds area and seasonal variations.

In fact we have just had our busiest winter season – we’ve worked ‘flat-out’ and are at full-capacity all the time.

Seems as though we have become the fortunate victims of our own success

Therefore, just to catch up:

  • We will NOT be accepting any new repair requests until Monday, 18th June (at the earliest).
  • Please accept our sincerest apologies.
  • The above does NOT apply to our regular customers!

The GOOD news: We will try to continue our “Whilst You Wait” service for small repairs (e.g. fit new inner tubes, fit new wheel(s), etc.).
