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 check 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.

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!

For full information please visit Stages Power.

Bianchi Infinito CV

Bianchi Infinito CV is Bike of the Year!
It's always great to see a truly innovative (and beautiful) bike get the recognition it deserves. And we are one of very few places to actually have the Infinito CV in stock - although in very limited quantities. NEW IN - we have secured some of the Ultegra model in stunning carbon/red, as pictured! >>more

"The road.cc Bike of the Year is the Bianchi Infinito CV. Same name but a very different bike from previous version of the Infinito [the direct replacement for the previous Infinito is in fact the Intenso]. The Italian company's new endurance bike features cutting-edge carbon-fibre technology to dampen high frequency vibrations and produce a smooth ride while still delivering all the stiffness you need for a superbly responsive and direct ride."

"Out on the road, the Infinito CV delivers an extremely smooth ride. The combination of the CounterVail technology and the geometry gives outstanding balance, equipping the rider with bags of confidence. It's also very direct, and an easy bike to ride fast. The CV is a class-leading bike that does everything you want from a performance machine, and more". Click here for more details.
