Lance's obsession and love of riding and racing bikes has never faded since the first time he jumped on a bike. All friends generally link Lance to some form of biking whether pedal bikes or motorbikes.
Our honeymoon was even a road trip in a tranny van around the mountains of France, Switzerland and Italy downhilling.
Kids came along and the riding (especially racing and roadtrips) had to take a bit of a back seat.
Karl (Dr. Crank) happened to mention he was thinking of selling the Whitby bike shop, after a few days of do we don't we, the timing was far from ideal for us as a family with two young boys but these opportunities don't come up that often! Excitement set in then panic, then excitement then panic......! Business heads on, sleepless nights.
Shop takeover, bit off more than we could chew trying to get organised and open a week after getting the keys. Hopeful that we will continue to provide a local friendly bike shop and evolve as Doctor Sprockets Bike Shack as time goes on.
Still. In the saddle at the top of a black run. Heart pounding. Scared. Excited. What's next? Who knows!?! Let's go!
Great turnout and weather today for Round Four of the CXNE hosted by Whitby Wheelers CC, with a podium finish for local riders Jasmine Kent and Will Brown and great effort from you 'older boys in the vets'!! Good job the mechanics were on hand post race to attend to the squashed worm issue covering the bike!!

We will be closed on Wednesday 13th, Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st. We would love to be having a holiday but it's purely 'business'! The 2018 launch of new bikes and products is ongoing, so we are heading North, South and West to check out the new arrivals!

Who wants to 'PLAY IN THE DARK'?! We've just stocked up on the innovative LED lights that lead the industry in bike lighting and safety. Another bonus with the majority of lezyne lights is that you can 'stay safe even during sunlight hours with daytime flash'.

We SURVIVED the summer holiday's...Not sure how, but we did! Please note our change of hours, more often than not we are working before and after so give us a call if you need to pop in outside of the new hours.

If you aren't already somewhere lovely and taking advantage of the sun and dry trails/roads, we are open today until 2pm......and then we will be making the most of the latter!

Spread the word folks (share if you will) that for the next three days we are teaming up with the Fire Service and NYCC Bikeability to promote bike road safety!

Each day there will also be one lucky winner drawn who will receive a @drsprockets voucher! Let the balance bike fun commence.......
