Faces of The Forge Cycleworks


The Boss!


Mike started The Forge Cycleworks almost 15 years ago, back then called Common Assault just off the main high street. Roll forward a couple of years and a location change and here we are. Mostly seen drinking green tea or chatting he makes sure everything runs smoothly!




Martin is our XC/Gravel demon. Often seen on the Strava KOM boards, he's the man to help you go faster. Whether that's how to shave a few grams of the bike or the fastest rolling tyres, he knows. With years of spannering in the bike trade, there's not much he can't fix.






Shop Morale Officer!


Although more often seen in riding gear, Mark's our go to guy when we need a hand in the shop. He's our resident Roadie, and with a impressive handful of rides in the mountains, he's probably fitter than all of us put together! Mind you he does also know all the best coffee and patisseries stops.


Mike W



Mike W is our other mechanic, with a wealth of knowledge he's quickly become part of the team. Need to know how to set your suspension up? Mike's the guy for you. He's also a man who loves his tech, just ask him about how a wireless dropper post can change your life!!
