December Newsletter 2016
The first day of winter ...
It’s December, the winter solstice and it’s very nearly Christmas. You may be in a flat out frenzy of organising and procuring or perhaps you are relaxing with zen like calm, glass in hand, content in the knowledge that your preparations are complete. Wherever you are in this whirlwind week everyone at TF Tuned sends you warm wishes for Christmas and for a peaceful New Year.
It’s been another record year here at TF Tuned with literally thousands (our numbers say approaching 6,500 this year) of suspension units passing through the hands of our skilled team of technicians. That’s a lot of suspension (!) and we’d like to thank all our lovely customers and suppliers for keeping us so busy this year.
Moving into 2017 we are excited to have some new brands in the workshop – in particular check out the new offerings from Ohlins
and Bike Yoke
below, which are the perfect mix of shiny bling and downright practical. Whether you plan to treat yourself/your bike to something new or you just want to keep the gear you’ve got running sweet; TF Tuned has got you covered.
