Today's Good IdeaExpert help for your bike.
Philippe Hutmacher is an expert not only on his bike, but also in his bike shop “De Vëlosatelier“ in Mamer. This young Luxembourger is a passionate cyclist that impresses his customers as a gifted bike mechanic! “De Vëlosatelier“ has a selection of racing and mountain-bicycles as well as children bikes and E-Bikes. Most popular now are the so-called “Fat-Bikes”, the ones you’ve seen with the extremely wide tires – which give exceptional grip in rugged terrain. Various technical accessories, helmets and bike-shoes are also available in the shop. Philippe speaks several languages and can give you expert advice whether it is to buy your first bike, or any tricky maintenance questions you might have. For example, with the current change in season, E-Bikes need a bit more attention so that they will start at full power again next spring: you need to fully charge the battery, carefully remove it from the bike if possible and store at room temperature. To configure your new bike, maintain or repair your used bike, “De Vëlosatelier“ guarantees fast, high quality workmanship in its own workshop. Inconvenient delays and waiting for parts are eliminated; he will normally have you firmly back on your saddle again within the week!Read on >
