Mass produced frames aren’t perfect – if they were to be perfect, they’d be a lot more expensive. But are these imperfections affecting riders? Are they so bad that we need to take matters into our own hands and have bikes tidied up and ‘finished’ after purchase? Probably not – but if you’ve got a time and £100 burning a hole in your pocket it’s not a bad shout.
I'm an NCTJ Journalist and work at Cycling Weekly.
Previous to this, I was the Editor at Total Women's Cycling. I've also dabbled in marketing and copywriting - having been Marketing Coordinator and Social Media/Content Editor at Evans Cycles. My first job was working on a local newspaper. I've written for a variety of titles on a freelance basis, too.
I got into cycling when I entered my first triathlon in 2010. I now race crits, road races, time trials, and do a lot of track training for not very much track racing.
