Posted on 16 Sep 2019

The Cycle Show 2019 saw c. 300 exhibitors and over 500 brands making it a key event for cycle dealers.

The ACT were at the show, offering support to existing and new members. The trade discussed with us our current services and, in particular, our new partnership with retail techonology compnay NearSt. If you missed us and would like to know more about any of our services or support available, don't hesitate to get in touch.

 

Cytech also attended the show for the duration of the weekend which offered a great opportunity for people to meet the trainers in person and talk about how Cytech training courses can benefit cyclists - from learning some basic mechanical skills in the home mechanic course, through to achieving full Cytech technical three Master Technician status as a fully qualified, workshop mechanic in the cycle trade.

 

The Tyre Lever competition also proved immensely popular where people needed to guess the number of tyre leavers in a bowl. There were some close guesses and the winner will be announced within the next week- keep your eyes on the Cytech Twitter and Facebook pages!

The show also featured tech talks run by Julian Thrasher, Cytech master technician, on the Komoot sponsored stage during Friday, Saturday and Sunday, which featured insightful insider tips and tricks to get the best out of your gear shifting.

If you missed the seminars or want to know more about any of the Cytech courses you can contact ATG Training.
