The-bike-tech owner, Mark Dressel, gets in the saddle...

What bikes do you own?
I own a Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Pro, an old hardtail Stumpjumper A1, and a Santa Cruz Chameleon. The Stumpy was my ride of choice when we did the South Downs Way in-a-day in July.

In your opinion, what’s the biggest rush on a bike?
Pumping demanding technical climbs followed by challenging descents on a trail that you haven’t ridden before, with mates wha-hoo-ing it up behind you all the way. Try ‘Killer Loop’ in the High Peaks, Derbyshire.

Tell us about Biketech and its aims:
Biketech’s primary objective is to integrate with local government, business, charity and education strategies,
to help safeguard the future development of environment and health projects. As well as the ability to set up a full workshop on-site for organisations, businesses and schools, Biketech offers the option of a ‘collect and return’ service for individuals.

We’re also working on building trade alliances to deliver on-site mechanic services. We’re working with Fisher Outdoor on a number of assembly and PDI projects, and plan to support other partners to help deliver on event, roadshow and launch commitments.

What services does your business offer?
Our full range of services include: on-site cycle surgeries for corporates and schools, distributor assembly and PDIs, event support, fleet maintenance, 'at home or place of work' bike maintenance for individuals looking for an alternative to the high street and qualified freelance mechanic services for whatever those requirements may be by the trade.
