One week to go.....

Russell CuttsComment

It'll all be over next week, the wrapping paper will be off, the turkey will be in the oven and the snow falling softly outside......Christmas is but a week away.

If you're still looking for a gift for those that cycle in your life or you want to drop some hints here are our top picks:

  • Why not sign up for our Club, at only £9.25 per month or £111.00 annually you can keep your bicycle serviced and maintained all year round without paying for labour, no matter how many times you use it. More useful than a magazine subscription and it's the gift that just keeps giving.
  • If you're looking for stocking fillers how about a smart bicycle pump with wooden handle, stylish and useful (£17.00). We've also got big ding-dong bells for those that love to ring out while they ride (£10.00). For the hands-on practical cyclist we also have a handy pocket guide to bicycle maintenance (£9.99)
  • If you really want to splash out then why not take a look at our bicycles, we are currently selling off our hire bike fleet for only £300.00 each, a capable, fast and comfortable commuting bike with mudguards and lock.

There's lots more to see in our shops so why not visit Sheffield, Nottingham or Neepsend before the festivities really begin.

Shop Small & Eat Mince Pies

Russell CuttsComment

Small Business Saturday is here this weekend. As a small business we appreciate all the help we can get, our business benefits from having a small group of people working together with the same goal and having great customers like you.

It wouldn't be the same here at Sheffield or Neepsend if a corporate entity was running the shop. Same products, same service. We like to be different and that's why we try to offer different, with niche brands of bikes like Foffa, The Light Blue and Ritchey down to some of the quirkier things like the pink Christmas tree, folding bicycle helmets and lime green solid tyres. Shop Small is about supporting those businesses that create a varied and exciting feel to our city centres and not allowing them to become clone cities.

So leading up to Christmas why not support small businesses in Sheffield and Neepsend by shopping small and keeping choice as varied as possible.

We'll have mince pies and coffee available at both shops and we'll be asking for donations going to The Salvation Army to give others the opportunity to have a nice Christmas. So come on down, it's Peddler Market too at Neepsend so there'll be hot food and beer available from the shed next door.

From December 2nd - 17th if you use your American Express card in our Sheffield or Neepsend shops and spend £10 or more American Express will give you £5 back. Just enrol here to benefit.

One Gear, No Idea? Update!

Russell CuttsComment

The single-speed has become the ubiquitous ‘cool bike’ for zipping around cities. However, many people are put off considering single-speed bikes when things get hilly, despite the fact that they are as common in San Francisco as they are in somewhere flat like London or New York. Read about how we can help you enjoy the freedom of Single Speed.

Is Gravel Biking right for you?

Russell Cutts1 Comment

Gravel biking is starting to become a thing here in the UK, with sportives galore popping up all over the place its a style of riding that can combine road and mountainbiking. Its relatively easy to access if you have a mountain bike but can be a little more difficult if you are a roadie.
