A regular segment which showcases some of the fantastic businesses you can find in Frankton village.
At Go Eco we love that Proudlock Cycles is upcycling and recycling bikes and providing that good old fashioned customer service.
Proudlock Cycles are a small family owned business, in Commerce St Frankton, that sell good quality second hand bikes and provide excellent service and repairs. Alan Proudlock tells us that they have been in Frankton since 1932. Alan started working in the shop straight from school and has been there ever since. “The 60s were humming,” he reminisces, “We were Proudlock Motorbikes and Cycles back then and had four mechanics in the workshop.”
Alan is honest about today’s difficulties competing with the big players, who are able to import large quantities of bikes and products directly from cheap overseas manufacturers. “Today everything is buy and chuck, it’s a throw away world. In many cases it is more expensive to repair than buy new.”
Proudlock Cycles has always been a family business that concentrates on providing honest service and good quality products and that hasn’t changed, now that their specialty is second hand bikes. Please come down and check out Proudlock Cycles for yourself. Alan is sure to give you a genuine welcome and a lifetime a cycle experience.
