We've been lucky this year, with a warm and largely dry Autumn it's meant that daily commutes have been much more pleasant Summer bikes have stayed in use a little longer. Now with Winter on its ways, are you and your bike ready for the ravages that Winter will put upon you, the rider and your bike.
Once again we are offering our very popular FREE Winter Health Checks! Winter is hard on bikes. Wet weather, road grit and grime coupled with cold, dark nights which aren't ideal for bike cleaning and maintenance can all lead to prematurely worn bike parts. if bike maintenance isn't your forte or at the top of your list of things to do, you could be left with at best a a large repair bill or at worst, a dangerous bike. To help prevent this we're offering to check your bike over to make sure it's all in good condition...Totally free of charge! You'll get a detailed report using a "Traffic Light" system to show you the condition of your bike and what work, if any, needs to be carried out. We'll then leave it to you if you want any work to be carried out. Book your bike in for your free health check by contacting us!
Keep It Clean.
Hands up who loves getting a wet bum and/or a muddy brown stripe up their back during your commute or on a long winter ride...That'll be nobody then.
A soggy backside is easily avoided by fitting mudguards to your bike. They're cheap, easy to fit (or ask your friendly local bike shop to do it for you), and they prevent you from getting a soggy backside and back. You'll also be instantly more popular with your riding pals too as the spray from your rear wheel won't be covering them in road grime. We stock a wide range of SKS mudguards that are suitable for just about any kind of bike. Pop in and have a chat with us and we'll make sure you get the right ones for you.
Be Bright, Be Seen.
With Winter on its way, we get crisp clear days... we also get the nights drawing in. As I write this the clocks are about to get back an hour. Dark commutes are upon us! Lights aren't just for saying legal and avoiding a fine, they're also for keeping you safe. With both Lezyne and Bontrager lights in stock we have lights that will keep you legal and lights that are so powerful they you can be seen from 2kilometers away in the daylight! You can read more about our lights by clicking here.
There's whole ranges of clothing designed specifically to make you more visible to drivers on your commute or while out getting those Winter miles in. Bontrager offers the warm and very bright Halo range (read more about Halo here), using some of the latest fabric technology to reflect light in as bright a way as possible to ensure you're seen!
As well as Halo we also stock reflective and flashing bands to further help you to stand out on those dark nights.
