Who'd have thought it?

When I discovered that the seat post in my bike had seized solid and I couldn't budge it I  looked on line and found John (aka The Seatpost Man)

As it happened,  we were passing near him on our way up to Keswick so I arranged to drop the frame off on the way past last week.   The job turned out to be little more involved than anticipated as a metal shim also needed to be custom made and installed

Luckily it was ready today so we picked it up again on the way back.   He has done a lovely job on it.

It amazed me that there was a living to be made from such a specialist skill.  He gets bikes sent to him from all over the world and also from bike shops who are unable to do the job.
