“I have been using Trail and Tar for several years now, for servicing of all my bicycles, plus 2 complete bike builds. It has been a great experience and one where I have got to know the whole team at the shop. Workmanship has been great. I have also made use of them at the Wine 2 Whales and for the last three years, at the Cape Epic from a service pack side of things. The guys have done an awesome job in keeping the bike sound. PLUS adding a great vibe at their tech station where we used their physio services as well. In fact I would go as far as to say their involvement has largely contributed to me been able to achieve the last 2 Epics on my rigid steel SS bike. The Epic is so hard and by having a happy environment to fall back onto each day is such a big advantage. Kudos to Trail and Tar....Guys u rock!” - Max & Isabelle Menzies
