Evolution Cycles was established in 2011 to answer the need for a high quality, efficient bicycle repair service.
Most shops concentrate on selling bikes rather than repair, either because the profit margin for them is greater or they lack the knowledge, Evolution Cycles is here to provide an alternative.
Founder and Owner Chris is a fully CyTech qualified bicycle mechanic at the highest level. Chris is one of the most highly qualified mechanics in Ireland, working for both pro teams and the average commuter Chris gives no one preferential treatment.
Chris’s passion for cycling started at an early age, his parents being keen cyclists and having cycle toured all over the world, its no surprise Chris took up the cycling bug. Being headhunted to race for a few teams Chris became a sponsored cyclist and raced around the world before a serious accident After that Chris turned to the mechanics working for several shops and pro teams before setting up Evolution Cycles.
A few words from Chris about why he does what he does.
“It is a true joy to see so many people enjoying the freedom of cycling, be it on a hand me down relic of a bike or on a top end race machine worth more than most cars! There is no snobbery here, we will fix anything and spend just as much care on any bike you trust to us to fix, no matter its value, perceived or otherwise.
We don’t just want to fix bikes, we certainly don’t want to just sell bikes. We want to make an impact. We want to make sure everyone has access to a fully roadworthy bike and gets to enjoy the freedom that can be attained from getting on the saddle and just pedalling.
Our core value here at Evolution Cycles is freedom, Braveheart inspired, shout it as loud as you can from the top of the highest peak “FREEDOM!” Freedom is being able to jump on a bike and cycle, cycle anywhere, it doesn’t matter; Cycle to work, to school, cycle to get fit, to train for a race, cycle 2km or 200km. There is nothing like that feeling of the sun on your face, wind in your hair not a care in the world. Your mind goes quiet and there’s nothing to think about other than breathe and turn them pedals.
I don’t believe anyone should be without that sense of freedom. That is why the business is built upon it. I believe in freedom, freedom to be and do what I want, when I want. Not to be restricted, to decide how to spend my time rather than have it dictated.
Freedom means travel, it means no restriction on time or place. Freedom gives the opportunity to see and do more, to explore where we live and even why.
Mini adventures are good for the soul. We don’t make you load up your bike in the back of a car and struggle to get it to us, we don’t keep hold of your bike for days, weeks getting it fixed and then making you come and collect it again. We come to you, at a location and time that best suits you. We fix your freedom machine then and there and leave you with it fully working… you can even watch as it gets it’s overhaul.
This is why I do what I do, this is why I take joy in what I do, and why I love to see everyone else taking to the simple pleasures of just turning pedals, turning wheels.”
Our mission is to provide top quality services to all bike owners! We strive to motivate people to use bikes in every-day transit.
