Our shop is attached to our warehouses so you can call upon our huge range of stock when visiting our retail store.
As well as the massive range of stock on hand, our shop is something of our pride and joy. Spacious. clean and bright. Cutting edge cycling kit and clothing on display. Far removed from the dingy, dusty oil-stained bike shops of yore.
You can ride any of our demo bikes and get a feel for the ride and sizing of the bike. We can the talk you through the various models and the options available and find the exact model that best meets your requirements and budget. We try to stock what we list but with so many 1000s of cycling components shortfalls do occur. If you require a specific part please call and we can put it to one side for your collection.
Good stock is nothing without good staff. All our shop staff are cyclists. We have a mix of road riders and mountain bikers. All the staff have sound knowledge of all types of riding and cycling kit.
Based in Chorley, Lancashire. Very close to the M6, M61 and the M65 motorways.

Thinking of buying a bike?
Whilst we do mail order a large percentage of our mountain bikes and road bikes a lot of customers do prefer to come and see us. We can the talk you through the various models and the options available to you for each one and find the model that best meets your requirements. Build time on our bikes can vary depending on the time of year, but if you can't call back in to pick it up we can arrange delivery to your door.
Thinking of buying some of our handbuilt wheels?
Over the years that we have been building mountain bike wheels we have built up an excellent reputation for the quality of our wheels. The downside to this is that we are constantly busy building them for customer orders, so whilst we do keep a range in our shop it is best to order them about 5-8 days before you want to collect them, so that we can have them ready for you.
Please call our mail order services on 01772 432431 and we will keep them in the shop for your collection. If you ever need any in a hurry please call and we may have your exact wheels ready build or a close alternative.
Need a specific component?
We make every effort to keep the listed items in stock. What we try to do is stock what we list. But shortfalls can occur. So if you require a specific part please call and we can put it to one side for your collection.
Need a service?
