Consultation. We listen, we advise. Tell us of your goals – and any issues until now hindering you. Let us maximize performance and comfort for your budget. We take measurements, static and dynamic, including a Selle Italia ID Match. We consider frame material and geometry, gearing, bar shape, bar tape type, pedal type, saddle type, aesthetics, the list is long and comprehensive. All in the comfort of our newly-extended and fitted out store. We ask the right questions and listen to your answers.
Demo bikes. We have a comprehensive demo process on key bikes, including Bianchi Infinito CV, Focus Izalco Max, Storck Visioner and Bianchi Oltre. This isn’t a quick 10 minutes round the car park; one of our staff take you on a fully supported hour’s ride, incorporating a variety of road surfaces and gradients, in the rolling Peak District and flat Cheshire lanes.
Bike fit. It’s the current buzzword but we’ve been doing it – and doing it properly - for years. The consultation means there are no surprises, the bike fit is an interactive process to precision tune saddle height, tilt, layback to getting you sitting in the saddle sweetspot. Then to set reach, and drop to the bar, shift lever position, brake reach, again, a very comprehensive process.
Validation. The bike fit and setup isn’t a one-off process, any bike fit is limited in its application, for example it cannot replicate the demands of a 10 hour sportive. We give you the tools and information to self-validate the process and the opportunity to re-fit. Many customers take the chance to go for a ride around the Macclesfield Forest, Peak District foothills and Cheshire lanes on handover of their bike. Route maps available.
Bike and kit. We recommend suitable, fit-for-purpose equipment, bike and accessories, based on your parameters. Any biometric issues such as lower back pain, other discomfort, are taken fully into account. We have a wide range of brand partners, including Bianchi, Focus, Storck, Kinesis, Orro, Whyte, Mavic, Fulcrum, Zipp, Selle Italia, Deda and Reynolds. We supply stock, modified stock and full custom builds. Our talented designers can - cost effectively - work to any specification/budget.
Bike build. It goes without saying that each build is to an exceptionally high standard, using the correct assembly compounds and correct torque settings, with a documented specification and build sheet.
Handover. Warranty information and registration. Cleaning and maintenance. A clear and concise presentation of the function of the bike equipment.
Pricing. Sounds expensive? It’s not. It’s as inexpensive to get it right as to get it wrong. We enjoy major purchasing power with our key suppliers and are often able to pass savings onto our customers.
