New Bike Consultation
Thanks for much. I had a great time on Wednesday and feel so much better about how to approach the next major bike purchase. – Chi, Aug 2009
If you aren’t sure what bike to buy, or which one will fit you we can help you to avoid a mistake. Use us to take the worry and doubt out of what should be an exciting purchase. We don’t sell bikes, so the advice we give you is unbiased.
We will consult with you to understand what sort of riding you would like to do, what injuries you may have, your relative body proportions and how much you would like to spend. We take the time to really listen to what you want (over a good cup of coffee) – this typically takes a couple of hours.
If you have a specific bike or bike in mind, we will let you know if it will do the job you want, whether the geometry is appropriate, and what size will fit you. If you don’t have anything in mind, we will do some research and send you a list of bikes which will suit you. We will tell you the relative merits of each one so you can make your purchase with confidence.
If you wish to buy your bike over the internet you can have it delivered to our premises to do the final build, check things like derailleur alignment, and set-up the gears and brakes:
If you wish, you can book a fitting for when you collect your bike so you are set up and ready to go.
The choice is yours – you can just use us for advice, or we can walk you through the whole purchase process through to a full fitting. If you aren’t sure – just give us a call & we can chat through the options with you.
I went out on my new bike for the first time yesterday – and really enjoyed it. I just wanted to say thanks again for all your help and steering me in the right direction with what to go for, I appreciate the time you took in answering emails etc. I’m sure I will see you again some time, and may come back to you in a few months for a fitting. – Patrick, Apr 2010
If you would like a custom frame made, we can liaise with the framebuilder of your choice, or recommend one to choose. We can recommend geometry and materials.
Once your frame arrives, we can build it up into a bike, and even build you a pair of handbuilt wheels to suit you.
Building a Bike
If you have a frame, would like to buy a frame, or are having a custom frame built, you can ask us to build the frame up into a complete bike for you. We can recommend which components will best suit your needs, source the components and build the bike up.
If you have already had a fitting with us, we can set your new bike up to match the correct dimensions, or you can arrange to have a fitting once the bike is complete.
If you have any questions at all – please don’t hesitate to give us a call on (020) 8998 7271
Many thanks for your time today and your care and dedication towards my new purchase. I’ve ridden it and it’s amazing! – Mike, Apr 2010
