Bank Holiday Weekend

Any plans for the bank holiday? Going on a long ride? Ride on by and get your bike serviced before the long weekend ahead as we will be closed Saturday the 2nd of May and on Monday the 4rth of May.

Don’t worry though, we’ll be back on Tuesday the 5th of May to help with all your bike questions, problems, and the occasional smoothie or juice.

OMG… No. 22 Reactor

IMG_0779Despite using the most visually disturbing background ever for their booth, No.22 Bicycle Company have proved once again that they are the masters of understated beauty. Shown above is the new Reactor frameset; featuring a more aggressive race geometry than the Great Divide and dropping a lot of weight through several design tweaks including the use of a carbon seat tube/mast.

This show bike tips the scales at 5.9lbs, which is well below UCI limits, thanks to the ee cycleworks brakes, Cannondale cranks & the bankruptcy inducing Reynolds RZR wheelset.

UK pricing is yet to be confirmed but expect to find your wallet up to 4k lighter… Oh, and if you’d like to replicate this show build you’d be looking at 5 figures… Time to sell an organ or 2 (it’ll be worth it).

Bombtracks Are Here!

bombtrack-arise-2015-p152-828_imageOur first drop of Bombtrack bikes are in store now… The stand out bike for us is the Arise (shown above)… Beautifully finished with hidden mudguard mounts, sweet Fabric saddle, external BB cranks, bombproof wheels and removable cable guides so you can run this puppy with gears if you feel the need. This blows the Genesis Day One out of the water! £600 of pure awesome-ness… I want one!

Bowman Palace ‘Absolutely Awesome’

Bowman Palace roadcc_logo_220stars-9

A new British brand we’ve been championing from the start, this latest review of Bowman’s Palace should kill any thoughts you may have that aluminium is a ‘downgrade material’ for a road bike…

Well, what a frame. The Palace sums up to me everything that a proper race bike should be. That raw, uncluttered feeling of some metal tubes and sorted geometry creating a bike that just feels right.

At cruising speed it’s mild mannered and very easy to ride and you can cover a lot of miles with very little distraction. (An) absolutely awesome frame that is a showcase for aluminium; one of the best high-speed handling frames out there

With no weight limit and a sensible price tag this is the bike you need for the 2015 Crit season!

  • Frameset (inc headset) £650
  • Full Shimano 105 builds from £1450
