Welcome to Epic Cycles
The UK's leading dedicated road bike store, with over 12,500sq ft devoted entirely to road bikes and their relatives. Ranging from sportive and road racing bikes to commuting and cross bikes, we have a huge choice of models from carefully selected manufacturers to suit all budgets, requirements and levels of experience.
While we offer highly competitive prices all year round and an unrivalled selection of road bikes, what really sets us apart is our industry leading customer service and honest low-pressure advice. We are also unique in operating a demo fleet of over 100 road bikes, so you can "try before you buy" on our quiet country roads.
Our test fleet covers most models and core sizes - but please call or email to
on specific model/size availability. We have plenty of parking and the
roads around the shop offer some lovely riding, so are
perfect for test rides.
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
News - Reynolds 2014 wheels in Stock NOW!
For 2014 Reynolds have totally revamped their "Performance Range" of carbon wheels. We have put them to the test on our local roads and they are stunning - we can totally believe the claimed 35% aero improvement, while the levels of stiffness and acceleration are simply outstanding. Combined with class leading stability in cross winds (thanks to Reynolds' "Swirl Lip Generator"), light weights and highly competetive pricing, the whole range threatens to be a game changer in the world of carbon wheels!
Available now in clincher form and from April for tubulars, the Assault SLG is the all-round option (see Addict Team Issue bike pictured right) - lightweight, with a wind cheating 42mm profile and wider/stiffer 25mm rim width, they really do excel in most conditions and on nearly every type of terrain. The low profile Attack is a perfect climbing wheel that also spins up super fast, while the deepest model - the Strike - makes an ideal all-conditions time trial wheelset, while also being a great option for criterium racing.
For more information please visit Reynolds Cycling.
News - Stages Power in Stock NOW!
We are great believers in using power measurement for maximising training time and benefits, and with Stages we think power meters are about to take a giant leap into the mainstream. With industry leading accuracy, the super light fully sealed unit adds under 20g of additional weight to a crank arm. Designed and approved for use in road, tri, MTB, cyclo-cross and Track, the sensors interacts seamlessly with ANT+ (e.g. Garmin Edge) and Bluetooth Smart head units, and require no specialist installation tools, magnets or calibration tools - they even compensate for temperature changes. As well as being the best value meters on the market, the left crank only design means no compromise on drive-side spider stiffness or choices of chainrings. Install in minutes, swapping from bike to bike as needed, pair with your head unit and off you go. Little wonder Team Sky have switched to Stages for 2014!

News - why we love Bianchi!
Well, just two of the reasons - their history and passion. A great little video from Peleton magazine delving into the heritage of the world's oldest bike brand. But heritage would count for nothing if Bianchi weren't still at the forefront of bike design, performance and sheer flair!

We Offer More
Part Exchange is something we are always willing to consider for used road bikes in good condition, but we will need to inspect your bike first. If you do need to dispose of an existing bike it is often advantageous to do so privately if you have the time, perhaps using media such as Ebay, and we are more than happy to offer you advice on how best to do this, regardless of condition or bike type.
FREE UK mainland delivery* on all 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.
