Bike Availability

COVID-19

The pandemic has had an effect on bike supply in the UK. There has been some obvious disruption to supply chains and lockdown seems to have inspired a surge of interest in cycling from people looking to bikes for their daily exercise. These changes also arrived at a time that is at the end of the cycle industry’s yearly product cycle, with new model year bikes usually beginning to arrive in July and August.

What this means is that there are likely to be many bike models in short supply over the summer months. Our advice as always is to get in touch. Our staff have access to more detailed supplier stock availability information including expected availability dates allowing them to advise model availability and supply dates or find and suggest available alternatives.

We keep a good range of bikes in stock but there are now so many different models, styles, sizes and colours that we couldn’t hope to keep them all in our shop. For this reason, most bike sold by us and many other bike shops are supplied on short lead times from stock warehoused by our suppliers. This gives us access to a huge range of bikes and ensures that we can supply a bike that’s the perfect size and fit for you, usually in just a few days.

Our website now displays a selection of the bikes that we range, showing our stock where we have it available and in the case of Trek bikes, it will also displays some bikes that are available on short (3-5days) lead time from Trek’s UK warehouse. For other suppliers we cannot currently display this availability information but this does not necessarily mean that bikes showing on our website as ‘out of stock’ are unavailable. Many bikes may will still be available to order from the supplier on short lead times. That’s why we’d always encourage you to get in touch with us if you are thinking about buying a bike, either by visiting the shop, via email or Facebook message.

Our staff have access to all supplier stock systems and can check and give accurate availability information and supply times. More importantly, they can provide assistance on sizing and model choice and help with expert advise on any other equipment or accessories you’ll need to make the most of your cycling.

All bikes we sell are assembled by a qualified mechanic and undergo a full multi-point safety check to ensure they are safe to ride. We offer finance packages through V12 Retail Finance and work with all major Government backed Cycle to Work Schemes.
