Why get an Electric Bike?

Gareth | 21/06/2016 16:51:53

Electric bikes are so good now that it seems now really is the right time to think about getting one. It’s an obvious choice for many to make a regular commute more bearable or for those with slightly limited mobility. For the most part, companies making E-Bikes are moving away from hub motors and.... More

A weekend in the promised land

Gareth | 15/06/2016 12:38:51

Every time I visit Copenhagen (CPH) I am reminded of what is possible. The UK doesn’t have to be a hard place to cycle around and customers to our shop who remark that they’re frightened to ride on the roads ought not be. It seems baffling that it works so well there when we so ably.... More

Is now a better time than ever before to go on a cycle tour?

Gareth | 01/06/2016 12:32:00

  Has technology and accessibility finally reached a stage where just about anyone could equip a bike and head into the wilderness? The likes of Airbnb and the prevalence of the smartphone are amongst many factors making the dream a more conceivable reality. I have the feeling a lot more these days that the answer.... More

Top five maintenance tools for the home

Gareth | 05/05/2016 12:31:59

If you've stepped foot in to a bike shop and seen the tool walls (and trust me there's more tools not on display) you know that there quite a few you need to attend to all the aspects of a bike and variants between manufacturers’ components and on and on. However, it is possible to make.... More

Mission Workshop

Gareth | 05/05/2016 11:45:17

I'll start this by saying that this will be in no way balanced and objective. I have been completely won over by the Mission Workshop brand and their products. They've completely nailed their look, online personality and ethos in general and I have become unwittingly a total brand ambassador. For some reason I have a total.... More

FAQs in bike shops

Gareth | 05/05/2016 11:34:07

In the same way that websites will direct inquirers towards FAQs in order to make sure that people have all the relevant information that perhaps doesn’t require such indepth responses, here we have the bike shop’s equivalent: Do I need padded shorts? .... More

Reader’s opinion: Should discs be banned from the Pro-peloton?

Gareth | 04/05/2016 15:54:37

  So after an open letter- well publicised in the cycling world- addressing the concerns of one rider about road bikes having disc brakes we got involved in a (slightly one sided) discussion here in the shop. Now we want to know what your thoughts are? We all found ourselves of the opinion here that there is.... More

Why can’t I get motivated to ride?

Gareth | 04/05/2016 15:26:27

I don’t know whether it’s a case of just getting on with it or whether I have just lost my desire to ride completely. Besides a need to ride the bike to and from work, I have almost purposefully ignored the option of getting out on the bike recently. I was blaming my recent.... More

The wonder that is the Abus Bordo lock

Gareth | 03/05/2016 17:21:10

I think that may well be the most nerdy title I’ve written, but I stand by it nonetheless. I just recently purchased an Abus Bordo 5700 U-Grip (in Lime green), having listened to countless others sing their praises for some time. I know that these are by no means brand new or just released, but I.... More

Muc-Off Fabric Protect is where it’s at.

Gareth | 22/03/2016 16:13:00

  Proceeding through the wet season… ...As I write this and consider the weather as a Brit’  must, it makes me think of all of the products that have made it more bearable this year so far. I bought some Muc-Off Fabric Protect early in January as there had already been a couple of.... More

Resolute Bay, highly reflective riding jeans

Gareth | 10/02/2016 15:31:00

So we just had a really interesting clothing line land in store. Resolute Bay cycling jeans. I’m really excited about this, I’ll get that out of the way early on. I like new things for one and especially new things that are in anyway cycling related. These jeans first caught my eye on Instagram..... More

What is a Gravel Bike and do you need one?

Gareth | 02/02/2016 12:34:00

  What isn’t  it? So let’s start by saying what the Gravel bike is not. No longer is it acceptable to just have a road bike or a hybrid because now there’s something in between. It’s not quite a cyclocross bike (although many who end up on a Gravel bike started off asking about Cyclocross).... More

The Gran Fondo

Gareth | 11/01/2016 12:47:00

  This Sunday (10th January 2016) was our Gran Fondo, put together by our loyal customer and dear friend Justin Gage. We met outside the front of our shop in Brunel Square, Bath, at 9am. The Gran Fondo was organised to combine as many of our Strava segments from the previous year into one ride..... More
