We will be closed on Tuesday 12th March for our annual stock take. Due to our computer systems needing updating we will not be able to process any payments, repair bookings or access customer information. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused but by doing this chore we will be fighting fit for the new season ahead of us.

A Christmas cracker, Cutting the cost of Christmas!
Up until the 10th December we would like to offer you 10% all Bicycles including pre-orders for Children's/Christmas Bikes. We have recommended Ridgeback Children's bikes for years now and we still feel they are the best out there, bar none. The offer includes the full adult range too, with bicycles from Trek, Ridgeback, Genesis and Eddy Merckx.
A Room with a View
A bit of big news from us is that we have relocated our fabulous workshop back to the main sales shop. So as a very special offer, we would like to give you 10% off Parts &Labour until 31st December 2012 and also if you were thinking of buying a new bike, we will give your old bike a free service (excluding parts) if you buy a new one from us! Many of you will remember this is how it used to be like this before we moved in to number 74 Walcot St. The added benefit for our skilled mechanics is that they now have windows and view! So with those guys full of vitamin D our turnaround time should be even faster! Both telephone numbers are still the same, just give us a call to book your bike in for a treatment.

The all new Trek Crossrip has landed and boy what a bike! It is following down the lines of an urban solution but taking its direction from the Cyclocross bikes which are now seen as a tough &agile approach to commuting and intercity use.
The Crossrip is made from Treks 100 Series Alpha Aluminium coupled with a Disc mounted Carbon Fork. The componentry is taken care of by Shimano's 8 speed STI system and the finishing touches come from Bontrager.
There is masses of mudguard clearence and mounting for a rack, making this a truly versitile bicycle. Pop in and see what all the fuss is about...
