News - LOOK 765 is here NOW!

The latest bike from LOOK has arrived in store - the all new 765. And it's a stunner. We recently had a couple of LOOK's first bikes in store to try out on our local roads, and on all terrain and every road surface it just blew us away. So responsive, so comfortable...and such a good looking bike! Cycling Weekly seemed to think so too >> click here

Look 765

The 765 comes in three builds and three finishes, including the lovely Pro Team colourway above. Starting with a Shimano 105 build, and with an Ultegra equiped bike for well under £2K, we can't recall a premium brand offering this level of performance at quite such outstanding value.

News - Bianchi Specialissima Launched

The most eagerly anticipated Bianchi for years has finally arrived! The result of four years development sees the launch of Bianchi's latest super bike, the Specialissima, featuring Countervail - the patented vibration cancelling layer that is an integral part of every tube and which delivers the holy grail of outstanding stiffness coupled to fatigue-defeating smoothness.

Bianchi's aim was to produce the best riding ultra-light (sub 800g) frame in the world. And it's hard to argue that they have delivered. We were fortunate to test this awesome bike out in the Italian mountains, and it climbs, descends and just blasts along like an absolute dream. Ultra light, comfortable, super-responsive with outstanding handling - the latest reviews put it better than we ever could: RCUK,

Bianchi Specialissima

The Specialissima also sees the introduction of Bianchi's latest "celeste" colourway - CK16 - which is a "flouro" version that pictures simply can't do justice to. It virtually glows, while being every bit as celete as its predecessors. Very striking and very celever. But Bianchi haven't neglected those wanting something different - as well as the matt black version below (with CK16 highlights) there will be a range of custom colour options to suit all tastes. And all are hand painted in Italy - not a sticker or decal in sight!

Bianchi Specialissima

We have bikes arriving now - but there are limited numbers coming into the UK, so please enquire early to avoid disappointment >> more details

Bianchi Oltre XR1

2016 Bianchi Infinito CV
The Bianchi Infinito CV is a truly remarkable bike - it was the first frame in the world to use a revolutionary patented new material - Countervail, which quite simply cancels big road vibrations like no other frame material, leading to reduced muscle fatigue and greatly increased bike control.

While Countervail might sound like just another gimmick or marketing ploy, like frame inserts or micro-suspension devices, the proof is in the riding - and in test ride after test ride it simply takes on the roughest of road surfaces and places the rider in total control, with no sense whatsoever of being rattled or bucked around.

Eddy Merckx

Eddy Merckx 2015
When Eddy Merckx stopped racing in 1978, he was just 33 years old. He'd done and won everything there was to win, but still he wasn't satisfied. The Eddy Merckx Company was established 30 years ago with a mission to produce the finest cycles in the world, and that goal hasn't changed a bit. Merckx is still at the heart of the company - he is an integral part of the design process, and always tests each new model himself. We just love the way Merckx's influence can been seen in the design of every bike they make. Click here for more details.
