Our mission

We believe passionately in cycling as a means of transport and fun and as a way of accessing the countryside in a way that does not damage the planet. We have spent many happy hours exploring lanes on our bikes and love getting around the city on our bikes, enjoying the feeling of freedom that commuting gives us.
Bicycles are a great alternative to cars – they provide exercise, the thrill of the wind in your hair. They do not pollute, they do not damage people’s health, they give roads back to pedestrians, children and older people who are trapped in their homes by roads dominated by motor vehicles. We are keen to keep customers on the road who use their bikes as transport. We give priority to customers who use their bikes daily and will always try and get your bike fixed on the day that you bring it to us if you need it to get around.
We have a lot of knowledge about cycling for fun and cycle touring, because we love it and customers have come to us for years to have their touring bikes built and fixed. We have built a lot of touring and audax bikes and we are always keen to give advice on equipment, panniers, bags and camping gear.

The new workshop

We have been building frames, repairing and renovating bikes, frames and wheels for over 30 years. We fix all types of bikes: mountain, touring, racing, time trial, bmx, tandem and electric assisted. We repair and renovate steel frames. Apologies but we are currently not taking aluminium or titanium frame repairs and alterations. We hope to resume in the near future.

We also sell parts, frames and complete bikes. As we have low overheads we can pass these on to you and we are often as cheap as the best internet prices.
