Flexible payments, expert fitting & after sales servicing

Payment Options
To make sure all our customers are offered the right bike for the right purpose we are always happy to discuss payment options for all or part of the cost using our local finance options agency Cherry Godfrey.
For each customer who chooses a bicycle from us we ensure that it is appropriate for their stated needs and that it is adjusted to fit them correctly for comfort, safety and for efficiency.
Each and every new bicycle will go through a settling in phase. This is normally within the first three months. During this period we advise all new bicycle owners to keep assessing the bike during and after each ride. If any adjustments are required during this settling in phase then these are performed free of charge by our technical staff.
