Factoid of the Day. Here is a little something I have spotted.

There is such thing as a MAGIC BIKE!!

As I viewed the video for David Guetta's Titanium track, I saw that they inadvertently released images of a bike that can change from right to left hand drive...

(appealing images taken on my phone of my TV..)

Left hand drive..

To right and drive..

This is huge news in the bike world! There is no way that this could be some lazy film editing and just mirroring the movie... its clearly magic.. nothing less.

Mavic's Little Visit.

We had a nice little visit from a nice man call Paul from Mavic.

There are some beautiful products in their range and here are a few images of the 2013 range. 

Super aero with the Mavic Blades.. 

Loving the stealth look of some of these wheels!!

Super cool (and well priced) Mavic helmets look.. well super cool really.

Blades installed and some 'interesting' Mavic Podium Shoes. 

Some of the range..

The bottom of a Podium Shoe..

Overall the range is pretty much spot on. There was a lot to take in but the guys and girls at Mavic have made a collection to rival all of the other big names in wheels, shoes, helmets and clothing. 

Keep an eye on our website in the new year as the first lot lands in Jan ;-)

Chariot Trial In Store NOW.

We have been given a great opportunity to give a short trial of the well established Chariot child carriers.

These carriers (not trailers) will be a great addition to many bike shops up and down the country (and maybe ours... stay tuned..)

In store we have a Cougar model with some accessories fitted. This carrier is a stroller first but it has the capability to take other forms; jogger, bike trailer and even can be fitted with ski's for the more adventurous of us.

This is a great chance to pop down and see our model before it has to be returned. We have the stroller kit and the jogger kit available for you to view and try. We also have the catalogues and prices for the various models in store.

Lee Cooper Custom Frames

We have been getting frame built by Lee Cooper for many years and the quality is amazing.

We have just had one frame build and one restored by him so I just wanted to post up some photos to show what great work he does.

The orange one is a custom build and the grey one is a restoration - both stunning.

So you know that when you get a custom frame from us, the geometry will be correct and the frame will look stunning!

For more information on custom builds pop in or give us a call on 01926 430211

Drive to Work Day for Cyclists.

This sounds like a great idea to show people just how cycling can effect the day-to-day traffic in our cities - and it seems to have worked. 

Although it seems to be poking fun at the cyclist its indeed a campaign to illustrate just how everyone using their cars can cause chaos in the towns and cities.

Stories about the relationship between cyclists and motorists have been making the headlines for weeks, but with news of the aftermath from the TV program 'War on Britains Roads' that aired on The BBC, we can see that there are rights and wrongs on both sides. But that is a behavior issue. This campaign puts that to one side and makes it very clear that the number of cyclists out there really are helping the roads to flow that little bit easier.

New Website!

I am sure some of you have already seen our new design website..

This is an exciting move for us as the number of products that appear on our site is now in the 1000's rather than the 100's. As with any new project there are teething problems along the way but we are happy to announce that the site is up and running with a huge range of products for sale. 

A lot of the products don't have images as yet, but give us time and you will find them filtering through. 

Those of you that read our blog on a regular basis will be aware that we have not done any posts for a while now, the website launch was the main focus but we hope that we can continue to 'banter' as normal from now on. 

Our new website has some pretty cool features. My personal favorite is that we can have a huge range of products on there quickly and clearly. For example, we launched this new look site with over 6000 individual products from day 1. This will be increasing as time goes on. We can also display the huge range of bikes that we have in stock as well as all the accessories and clothing we have in store. 

There are now share buttons on each product so an item can be sent to Facebook or Twitter to show your friends for example. 

We have easy access to our blog and our Flickr Gallery on the site also.

And for those wanting a bargain, we have a 'Clearance' tab for all those end-of-line items and any offers we may have from time to time.

So, with that I hope you can explore the site with ease to find what you are after... If you have any questions or queries about the site or about a product, please use the 'Contact Us' link at the bottom the page, or the 'Email Us' link at the top of the page.

Bobbin Bikes

We have received nearly all of our Bobbin bike order now. 

These bikes have all the style and look of the vintage bikes but they are built to modern standards and with freely available parts. This means that the bikes that we are struggling to repair due to not being up to standard can be replaced with these stunning and affordable bikes. 

But maybe the best addition to the range are the 'shopper' style bikes!

These shopper bikes come in 3 colours and they are again built to last and priced well at £299.

Why not pop down and take a look at the range.
