Regular mechanic on duty is Martin. Daughter Rita helps out at times when she’s home for a visit. Both Martin and Rita have the latest Shimano advanced mechanic qualifications. You can also find John Michell in the workshop one day a week (sometimes more, sometimes less). John doesn’t have the bits of paper to say so, but he’s also a great bike mechanic with years of experience. While not a bike mechanic, Marie is another regular face for customer service at the Quiet Rev.

The Quiet Revolution also sells music gear, much to the surprise and delight of some customers who turn up on our doorstep with a confused look, saying “Someone in town said I could buy guitar strings at the bike shop…” We point to all the different strings hanging on the wall and they laugh in disbelief, find what they need and leave happy.
