Servicing can be booked in advance or over the telephone and you can always drop your bike in anytime without an appoinment but during busy seasons you may have to wait for a few days as we often have a tight work scheudle. We will always offer you a quote before you commit and are prices are very fair compared to big brand name stores and larger shops.
We also sell new bikes from Scott Bikes, Felt, Merida and Claud Butler and hold a range of each in store at all times. The staff between them have over 25 years of experience and come from a range of cycle industry backgrounds. Chris who works in our fully kitted out workshop used to race for a team in South Africa and Kobus has worked with and around bikes all his life. So you can be assured of a personal and dedicated level of service from us.
We place ourselves in the mid-high end range of bikes purley becuase we feel that you pay for what you get. If you buy a cheap bike from a superstore then you are going to end up spending a lot on maintence over the years. Where as if you buy more expensive bike, you will see more life out of the components, have a higher performance bike, require less money for servicing and most importantly love your ride and want to keep riding!
Frustration from buying the wrong bike can lead to a short lived sporting endeavour.
In store you you will find large range of bike helmets from Bell and Gyro and dedicated section for kids helmets as well as Bike lights from Blackburn and Smart. We also stock Brooks Saddles, Brooks Handlebar Tape and accessories. For the more modern cyclist we have a wide range of Lezyne Pumps, Toolkits and bags as well as Topeak Track Pumps and Saddle Bags. Pop in and come and checkout our in store range Monday to Saturday 9am to 5.30pm and late opening on Thursdays until 6.30pm.
Kobus, Chris, Tom and Peter will be delighted to help and dont' forget we have a very comprehensive website with a huge selection of components and bike parts.
