We offer a wide range of products and services: bikes, parts, clothes and accessories. We sell good brands at sensible prices and when you buy an adult bike from us, we offer you a free first service after you have had it for 6 weeks. Our adult bikes start at around £200 – we sometimes have second hand or special offer bikes less than this but our experience of cheaper bikes is that they are generally not worth the money.
We have a page specifically looking at Bikes in Stock .

For no longer hire bikes – sorry..
We build high quality wheels under the name Talbot Wheelworks. We can source Mavic, DT Swiss and Shimano rims and a variety of spokes and hubs from manufactures such a Hope. Our wheelbuilding is carried out by Justin Russell and we market the service under the title ‘Talbot Wheelworks’ – Talbot was the name of the family that ran the bike shop before we took over.
We offer a wide range of services and repairs. Regular services (brakes and gear and general check over) are £55 plus parts. Other options are available right up to complete strip-down and re-build. We will also put your new bike together for you should you buy a bike delivered in a box – £35 for assembly and safety check (£5 extra if you need us to dispose of the box). Please not that it is not possible to service some cheaper brands of bike due to the quality of the components.
