We will be closed this Friday 11/1/13 in addition to Thursday 10/1/13 (like normal) as we will be down at TF tune furthering our knowledge of suspension.
We will be open on Saturday morning like normal at 9.30.
As hopefully you will now be aware we collect old inner tubes for recycling.
So far I estimate we have collected over 300 tubes, many thanks to all the customers who have brought in there old tubes.
We are now well over the minimum weight requirement. Dont worry we are still collecting, remember we can take any tubes larger than 26 inch even if they have been puncture repaired. As long as they have not been cut or slit.
Each year we refresh our hire fleet, and it is getting close to that time of year again.
Want to grab yourself a great bike at a reduced price. We will be selling our ex-hire Trek 4300 Disc mountain bikes for around £340 (rrp is 500 new). Please be aware that each bike is priced individually based on condition.
The bikes will not be available until January time, but after the response we had last year we have been gathering interested customer details throughout the season. We would therefore ask if you are interested to give us a call on 01433 659345 or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Then when the bikes are put up for sale we will contact you. We only have a limited number of bikes available and once they are gone they are gone.
Bike Garage will be closed on Wednesday 5th September in addition to the Thursday 6th September as I am going to the Paralympic Games.
We will be open again as normal on Friday 7th at 9.30
I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

What is so special about a bike with 29 inch wheels, wheel that extra 3 inches compared to the the standard 26 inch wheels, found on most bikes makes for a totally different riding experience. In layman’s terms bigger wheels mean you roll over more. When climbing this means you carry momentum over technical features making it easier to clear technical climbs. The improvements when descending are again on more technical terrain the wheels roll/carry over dips and drops in a way that inspires confidence. Due to the larger wheels the ride height (bb) is higher than a 26 inch wheeled bike. Giving you a higher ground clearance which comes very handy on technical rocky trails.
So if you are considering the switch over to one or just fancy a try to see what the hype is about. Why not come try one out on some of the best trails anywhere.
We are 2 different size available 17.5 and 19.0 inch models. Full details can be found on the Hire bikes page.
Jeff has just edited this video together, it features some of the best footage from the past three years.

They are all within riding distance from the shop, so why not hire some bikes and check them out.
