Our Best Bike Brands

Check out a brief synopsis of our Best Bike Brands below;

We are proud to represent these bike brands here in Ireland and beyond, we have chosen to partner with these brands because we truly believe that they tick all of the boxes in what we look for in a bike.

Above all we value build quality, customer care, attention to detail, innovation, uniqueness and craftsmanship.  The run of the mill-mass produced stuff that one tends to find in the large chain stores may well be cheaper than some of the products we sell but sure you could get that one-size-fits-all thing anytime, anywhere.

We kinda like the whole bike for life ethos – Less haste, more care and attention to detail, less waste, more old skool coolness and creativity is what floats our bike boat.  So without further ado and in strict alphabetical order here goes:
