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, road.cc.
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!
We have bikes arriving from late summer, with all sizes available from October. There are limited numbers coming into the UK, so please enquire early to avoid disappointment.
News - LOOK 765 is Coming Soon
The latest bike from LOOK will be in stock with us soon - 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
The 765 will come 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 under £2K, we can't recall a premium brand offering this level of performance at quite such outstanding value.
We Offer More
A free professional fitting session is included with every new bike purchase (this can be quite a lengthy process, so please check in advance that one of our fitters is free before travelling a long way for a bike fitting) - we can of course provide detailed guidance over the phone or by email in advance of a fitting, or if you can't make it over to us, but please be patient if we don't respond immediately as we are exceptionally busy just now. >> more about us
Try Before Your Buy! We run an extensive demo fleet of over a hundred road bikes covering over 80% of our range, so test rides are available on most of our carbon road bike models - but please call or email us before visiting to confirm availability of your chosen bike as we can't carry every model/size combination (there would be thousands!) and to check that one of our fitters is free to look after you.
FREE UK mainland* delivery on all bikes (except ex-display/demo, used and cycle-to-work scheme bikes) and anything else purchased at same time (*UK Mainland excludes Highlands and Islands - please contact us for delivery charges to these areas).
International delivery is now available at competitive rates to all countries - charges to international destinations vary according to the country we are shipping to and the nature, size and weight of the item we are sending, so please contact us for a firm delivery quote and timescales.
