    What a job you have done on this bike, it looked like a new bike and I bet it runs better than a new bike now with that hard work.



  2. Matt Mcnulty on August 15, 2022 at 12:27 am

    Nice vid

    Any tips for washing hands after a job like this? I find that soap and water doesn’t cut it for me.

    Hello Bike Speed Team! Again a very nice video! Thank you to the owner for his/her patience letting you film it! It’s great to see how much life bikes can have in them with elbow grease and spare parts!

    I‘m curious how much money this job was in the end for the customer – would you share this? (Maybe also as a PM). I really think it would be interesting since todays shortages in bike but also parts delivery: sometimes new bikes aren’t even an option and some people hesitate bringing old bikes back to life…

    Thank you for this great content! BR from Germany!

    Are located in Oxford or near that location. We’ll done i really enjoy watching these videos.



  6. Stewart on August 15, 2022 at 12:33 am

    Thanks, I wondered why my torque wrench wasn’t working on BB!



  7. Docta Jon on August 15, 2022 at 12:33 am

    I nabbed one of these for $250US in great condition and had no idea what a sweet bike it actually was. I enjoyed the restoration



  8. nunu1871 on August 15, 2022 at 12:33 am

    Great content as usual keep it up 👍

    As a home based, self-taught bike mechanic, with about 15 years under my belt, I stumbled upon your channel while looking for bike related videos. Right of the bat, your attention to detail is to be praised. Stripping and cleaning the entire bike, then turning it from used and tired to "new" and ready to roll is always an interesting and enjoyable undertaking. I’ve picked up a few ideas already and noticed some of the tools you use, one of which I’ve ordered from my local Mountain Equipment Coop store. All I have to do now is take a really good look at the layout of my shop, to see how best I can maximize work and storage spaces, while still keeping it a multi-discipline area, i.e.: bikes, small engines, woodworking, etc…to name a few.
    Thanks,

    Great as always. Bravo from Greece…



  11. xj31 on August 15, 2022 at 12:40 am

    Amazing job. The amount of neglect that bike has been put through, I had no Idea it could be brought back to such great condition. I honestly would have thought it beyond help. Subscribed!



  12. Wouter van der Laan on August 15, 2022 at 12:41 am

    Beautiful also. This bike is like new again and hope the owner will enjoy it for years to come. I noticed you were truing the wheel with the tyre on, but I always take off any tyre, or is that not necessary?



  13. Tom on August 15, 2022 at 12:42 am

    Great job!



  14. Fraser Cameron on August 15, 2022 at 12:43 am

    Wow, great vid again guys. What a lovely bike.



  15. Aaron B on August 15, 2022 at 12:43 am

    Another great tune up.



  16. loudawg on August 15, 2022 at 12:44 am

    That was very enjoyable and educational. I’ve been riding my bike to work for 5-6 years 30km a day and I’m beginning to feel it runs a bit tired these days. My Giant Escape needs some TLC. Great stuff👌



  17. h3n488 on August 15, 2022 at 12:46 am

    Cool to see a "normal" bike serviced! We’ve all seen many superbike restorations but fewer of these commuter bike jobs. Thanks!



  18. DarrenCKern on August 15, 2022 at 12:50 am

    This is the first video of yours I have watched, and I quickly subscribed a couple minutes in. Very educational and interesting!



  19. Black Clock on August 15, 2022 at 12:50 am

    Damn! I’ve so enjoyed watching these videos and have subscribed without delay. I think they call it ASMR but whatever, it’s a very relaxing process watching the turnaround and recovery of some of these bikes. Having a five bike fleet, I’ve always kept them maintained and clean and do enjoy it (ideally on dry sunny days of course!) but your attention to detail is definitely something an obsessive like me can really appreciate. A real shame you’re a few hundred miles too far of being my L.B.S. Keep up the great work.



  20. James Price on August 15, 2022 at 12:51 am

    Liked and subscribed. Great video and a lovely bike!



  21. Ganesan Vengadesan on August 15, 2022 at 12:52 am

    You should have roped in the owner for the cleaning of the whole bike part…😅😅😅



  22. simplymumar on August 15, 2022 at 12:54 am

    Hello! May I know the measure of the bike headset that you used? Thanks. 🤗



  23. Jennifer Williams on August 15, 2022 at 12:54 am

    What an amazing service. So nice!



  24. graham florey on August 15, 2022 at 12:55 am

    Great videos. I really enjoy watching them. Any chance of including the prices you charge?



  25. city of prineville rr on August 15, 2022 at 12:56 am

    Great job need to do this to my hybrid



  26. Dave Key on August 15, 2022 at 12:56 am

    A grand job. Looks like new



  27. 7tepan on August 15, 2022 at 12:59 am

    Really nice and clear job. Just continue and do the more videos like this 👍



  28. Skinny Jimmy on August 15, 2022 at 12:59 am

    So great to see the huge amount of change that can be done even to an average joe’s bike. Well done!



  29. Russell Lualhati on August 15, 2022 at 1:01 am

    love from PH! Keep it up!



  30. mikeyzs on August 15, 2022 at 1:02 am

    Just discovered this channel and I’m loving it! What liquid do you use in your ultrasonic cleaner? I got myself a 6 litre one after seeing yours 😀



  31. Abel Balbo on August 15, 2022 at 1:02 am

    Strangely therapeutic viewing



  32. Glen Bergman on August 15, 2022 at 1:03 am

    astounded by how much you were able to improve the paint. What would you use on a carbon frame with paint?



  33. James Parsons on August 15, 2022 at 1:05 am

    Nice to see a normal bike get serviced, love what you do.



  34. Juan Sebastian Martinez on August 15, 2022 at 1:06 am

    Nice work, that bike looks awesome for commuter



  35. Andrew Hayes on August 15, 2022 at 1:06 am

    That saddle🤣 cracking job though.



  36. Kevin Borovsky on August 15, 2022 at 1:07 am

    Greetings from Canada. Just found your channel, and thoroughly enjoy watching the rebuild process. Thanks and please keep the videos coming. Cheers



  37. onegrapefruitlover on August 15, 2022 at 1:09 am

    What a detailed work! It’s great to see bikes being brought back to life line this. Love your channel.



  38. cst td on August 15, 2022 at 1:09 am

    Still here! Just with a little bit of delay ! Thank you for such an amazing job! Thank you for mention my comment in your video! I watch with a little bit of delay because of slow internet but still happy to be part of this!



  39. Chad Kline on August 15, 2022 at 1:15 am

    I am not interested in this stuff. What I would like, for every model, is a list of special tools required, and service intervals. That would actually be helpful information since mfrs fail to include these things, and owners are left in the dark. It would be nice to have access to a library like that. I’d like to search for ‘talon 4 service’, and find a video that states every special tool required, where to buy them, and the maintenance interval for every component. That would be so valuable.

    Honestly, I don’t have time to watch someone polish a wheel or whatever. That’s completely useless to me, and a waste of time.



  40. Frederic Agullo on August 15, 2022 at 1:16 am

    Please tell us the cost of these repairs…



  41. Alfie JB on August 15, 2022 at 1:18 am

    picked up a bike like this today brand new for a steal rides perfect just flies



  42. Des Sheehan on August 15, 2022 at 1:18 am

    What a transformation. Beautiful. Well done. Love these videos and great to see a “normal” bike get the full works also.



  43. Rupert Creek on August 15, 2022 at 1:18 am

    I subscribe to a number of youtube chanels, yours is top of my list. Great vid I’ve dealt with a number of mates bikes in almost the same condition so satisfying to see the look on their faces when I hand their bike back and I really only do it for fun only ever charge for parts and consumables so they get a bike back that they thought was only fit for the scrap yard.
    Look forward to the next vid.



  44. Matt on August 15, 2022 at 1:19 am

    Wish I was more local to you guys 😔 great videos. Can’t stop watching haha



  45. buildingreno on August 15, 2022 at 1:20 am

    Cool town bike! Why not new grips though 😧



  46. Ben Porter on August 15, 2022 at 1:20 am

    Top craftsmanship



  47. Carl Pentney on August 15, 2022 at 1:23 am

    Well done to Bikespeeds on another quality piece of workmanship and also well done the customer on having the bike restored to its former glory rather than resort to a new one. Great video!



  48. Aaron B on August 15, 2022 at 1:23 am

    Good for another 20 years.



  49. Mark Vasquez on August 15, 2022 at 1:24 am

    I wanna see you guys servicing a titanium bike one day



  50. Christoph Englert on August 15, 2022 at 1:25 am

    I really wonder what’s going on with the rear hub. Was it still good although the bottom bracket had to be replaced?
