What's been keeping me away from the blog?

Well, it's been busy ...

We have devolved a certain proportion of the Campagnolo warranty business out to the wholesalers now, but a proportion still fetches up at our door.

We had a good visit to the Campagnolo factory earlier in the month, too, which has bought us up to speed on some new issues and procedures, as well as hopefully laying the ghost of several months of misunderstandings in that direction, though we still have to see action fitted to words in some directions ...

Hopefully all of that will mean a better service to end-users, now!

We've got several great builds in process, and several have recently been delivered - London Road Club have been keeping the workshops busy recently, with wheelbuilding, a full rebuild service on a Cervelo R3 / Campag 10s and the retro icing on the cake, a beautiful 1980s DeRosa to be married up to a Campagnolo 50th Anniversary group, just as soon as I can lay my hands on the cups for an Italian threaded bottom bracket of the right type and vintage - hopefully tomorrow.

Teaching-wise, we are also busy with a roadside maintenance course running this Wednesday evening at Longstaffs, a Platinum week to deliver later in June, and the ongoing re-accreditation of our courses by EDI being organised.

We are running two days of courses for National Bike Week in the third week of the month at Manchester Velodrome - a one day introduction to cycle mechanics, and a half-day introduction to track bike mechanics ... there are places available on both, so if you are interested, please contact Bob Barber at the Velodrome.

At the end of the month, we'll be off to France with the usual crew for the Londres-Paris cycle sportif.

Right now, it's back to the grindstone, with a Campagnolo Bora rebuild and a string of ergos needing fettling ...
