Shop Small

Russell CuttsComment

Small Business Saturday is on the horizon. 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 Nottingham Station 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 Nottingham by shopping small and keeping choice as varied as possible.

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!

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.

Winter Riding

Russell CuttsComment

Winter is well and truly on its way now, the leaves are falling and the days are drawing in. We have all the kit and advice you need to get you bike ready for winter.

New Lights? Now the days are drawing in it's highly likely that you'll be riding in the dark more frequently. It's been a while since you last used your lights, you may have even lost them, so check are they working ok. If not get a sleek set of new Smart lights that are ultrabright and will make you seen on even the darkest of nights. With choice of battery or USB charging they are great for commuting.

Better grip? The roads are wet and slippery maybe its time to invest in some new rubber that's a bit grippier. We recommend Schwalbe Marathons or Halo Twin Rail to give the best all round performance. When the ice and snow comes you don't have to stop as we have Schwalbe studded winter tyres already in stock. Don't be scared to invest in tyres, the harder you ride the more you should spend and the more puncture protection you get.

It's chilly outside. So wrap up warm but make sure you layer up so that when you get hot after riding all those miles you can remove a layer or two. Wind is your enemy in winter so make sure you wear a good quality softshell jacket to keep it from penetrating those layers, alternatively you can do as the pro-riders do and stuff some newspapers down your jersey. Gloves too are essential, you don't want your fingers going numb.

Take your time. It's no longer a race out there, summer is a distant memory and now its time to learn how to ride with style and panache, don't think about your Strava times. Be seen and keep your eyes out too, in the dark and wet potholes and debris disappear so you need to watch out for them.

Winter Bike? There is always an excuse to get a new bike, even if you have a fleet already, but if you are really putting in the miles and don't want to trash your carbon fibre road bike this winter why not consider a stylish steel bike, we have a range from Marin, The Light Blue or Ritchey. Our Foffa range make real sense for winter commuter riding, simple steel frames with stylish good looks.

Why not take a trip to one of our shops to discuss your winter riding options. http://russellsbicycleshed.co.uk/contact/
