A quick update in light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
7th June 2020
Well, here we are. Roughly 12 weeks since lockdown started and it's fair to say it's been one hell of a ride so far. We hope everyone out there is doing well and coping under the circumstances.
Due to the global PPE shortage we've been finding it impossible to order protective gloves in the numbers we've been used to and our stocks have now run out. To be honest I'm surprised we've made it this far!
Despite the importance of PPE when dealing with brake fluid we've decided, since it is not an essential part of our bleed kits (technically speaking), rather than remove all of them from sale we've decided to carry on sending them out minus the gloves for the foreseeable future.
We will be reinstating protective gloves into our products again at the earliest opportunity.
Unless you have your own PPE to use during brake-bleeding please take extra care when using our products and don't forget to wash your hands afterwards. After all, it's what Boris would want!

First of all, we hope that everyone who reads this is coping well with the new social measures imposed by Government due to the global Coronavirus outbreak.
We've had a great many customers get in touch to ask if we are still open and operating as normal and thankfully the answer to that is - Yes.
Although we've seen a spike in sales over the last few days we're happy to say that orders are going out as usual on a daily basis to all our customers and dispatch times have not been affected. This is due to the fact that we operate from home and delivery workers in the UK have been identified as 'key workers' therefore postal collections will hopefully continue as normal throughout the disturbance. If this changes we will let you know.
Please be aware that delivery times may well be affected as resources are stretched worldwide, so please bare this in mind when placing your order. Just know that any delay in delivery will not be due to any delay in us dispatching your items.
For now, we've all been asked to remain in our homes as much as possible. This means that bike maintenance, rather than bike riding, is at the forefront of many people's minds and now is the perfect time to do those tweaks, degrease your chain or indeed bleed your brakes.
Reach us any time you need us, we're not going anywhere.
