Bikes and Banter!
Its a bit decision these days choosing the wheel size of your bike and its not to be taken light-heartedly. Although more and more people are making these different parts, it can still be difficult to find a shop when you are in the middle of nowhere that supports the 'new' sizes. Of course there have been dabbles with the non 26" wheels in the past and some of them are only just becoming popular. 29ers are a prime example. They have come and gone and now they are back to stay. The great thing about all this is that you have the choice. I cant see the 650B craze kicking off properly for another couple of years but its coming...

This bike has all sorts of lovely polished goodies hanging off it, where do we start??
Well lets start with the frame and fork. As to be expected with the Master, formed tubing and chrome lugs with hand pained gold detailing and the same can be said for the fork. Wheels where hand built in store. Chris King hubs on DT spokes and Halo polished rim. Classic looks with modern strength and performance. Stem, bars and seatpost from Ritchey's Classic Range. Again giving a quality, modern aspect to the bike. Silver Campagnolo parts finish the build with the retro feel.
This bike can stand next to retro bikes and fit in a treat. All new and nothing that will be difficult to replace or outdated.
There are soooooo many little details on this bike I am sure there will be some people looking at these pictures for a while.. :-)

We have been doing 'Ride it Away' finance for a while now and there are loads of customers out there with a new bike on a package that suits them. From as little as 0% you can select to pay over 12 months for example. This is a great way to get on the road or trails on a quality bike.
This is open to all customers (select sale bikes are excluded) and you can pay for the entire purchase with the finance deal so you can have all the accessories you need at the same time.
For more information about finance deals in store come down to our store or call us on 01926 430211 where our knowledgeable staff can help.
