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.
News - Colnago Arrives In Store
We are delighted to have added Colnago to our range for the 2015 model year - the first of two new bike brands for us! The second brand is being built right now and will be added shortly.
At Epic Cycles, we are focussed primarily but not exclusively on the frameset and custom build side of Colnago's range, as we believe this is the area that Colnago simply excels in - click here for details.
News - Bianchi.co.uk Accessory Store!
We have just begun to stock up our new Bianchi Accessory Store with Bianchi goodies, such as the lovely steel floor stand below, and top quality items like the excellent Bianchi CNC Track Pump (just £59.99 - a truly outstanding price for any CNC track pump, let alone a Bianchi one!) and KMC DLC celeste chain.
Head over to www.Bianchi.co.uk to take a look - we will be adding more items on a weekly basis, so please bookmark the site and be sure to re-visit regularly!
News - Stages Power In Stock
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.
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.

Bianchi Oltre XR1
Using identical tube shapes to the Oltre XR2, the XR1's classic Bianchi racing geometry ensures maximum power transmission. Its aerodynamic carbon frame with ultra thin seat stays (UTSS Technology) provides a winning combination of lightness, rigidity and aerodynamics, delivering a precise and responsive ride.
A true performance bike inspired by the Oltre XR2 model used by the Bianchi teams in the UCI World Tour. Click here for more details.
