My story...

I bet you are wondering how every Review and Rating I have is 5 Stars on Facebook.
Well it goes way back, a little something like this:

Since 1984...

When I got my first Sunbeam bike at 3, I was very excited about the freedom of riding a bike.
Then one day I was old enough to ride a BMX, and received a Raleigh "Mag" Burner at 6.
By age 9 I was sporting my first Off-Road capable Shimano SIS Geared ATBs for me. These bikes primed me for a lust for cycling throughout my childhood.
No other outdoor free roaming activity has yet compared to the enjoyment of riding a bike.

2000

By the time I was at College, studying Advanced ICT, I found a new fellow bike loving friend. He owned many bikes, and was always getting and building new ones.
Before long we went on many cycling adventures together with another friend, and I really got into customizing and fixing Mountain Bikes.
It was not long after that I found myself learning more about how bicycles work, and I started to do it for other people.

2007 - The Beginning of leeli cycles

After years of study and looking for new Jobs, I found myself being asked to build small business web sites, and worked doing various types of basic computer desk or retail jobs.
Meanwhile in my spare time, I helped people with their bicycles. Eventually I acquired more and more tools and spare parts, and ended up renting a council garage to work from. Word spread quickly among cyclists. And people were saying that I was the guy to go to for a fairly priced bike repair without waiting weeks for an appointment. I even began to change my job work hours to part time.

A conversion of trust and reliability

People began turning to me for help in the 2000s.
I was constantly hearing complaints about Their LBS leaving them with badly fixed and overpriced jobs,
doing and changing things without permission, and selling unsuitable or unwanted accesories or components.
After many years of this, I'd long decided that it was high time somebody was needed to convert disgruntled Domestic brand LBS customers into satisfied riders that will get the most out of their bike for longer every time they get a service.

2014 - A special new brand of Cycle Servicing is born

In 2011 my usual place of work had closed down and I had been made redundant. Jobs seemed much harder to get than before in this time, but by then I had gained 17 Years of Retail Knowledge and sales Experience.
After receiving the ongoing support to pursue my dreams from family & friends, I decided it was time pull in the reigns of my career, and take control of my life and dreams.
I registerd as Self Employed and begun planning the next big step in my life, creating my new bike shop. Running a business was something my father had done at about the same age, and he helped me get started by putting the shop together and helping get things setup to run a business. I had officially registered my business as "leeli cycles", with the aim of being a small, independent family run Bicycle repairs and rentals service, as a Sole Trader

2016 Onwards

By 2018, I had a new Shop in Turners Hill (October), I have earned a fantastic reputation in Crawley, and after more than 2 years of hard work there, I now provide over 30,000 Cycling Products over 200 Brands with 25 Suppliers, most of which being available to the same or next day. Some of these are also available in my new online Click & Collect Store.

It all started with my belief that cyclists deserve fair prices with high quality servicing, and to have their bike treated by the mechanic as it was their own.

We also provide Bicycle Rental! Why not visit our brand new Click & Collect Store, where you can choose the products you want with your service, and collect them once your bike is serviced and completed!
