Heading into spring we’ve got some great developments coming up for for your local bike shop and the local cycling community. And so we started with the decision last month to put some time aside to give the Steel Town Cycles workshop a fresh coat of paint, sealing the floor to reduce dust in the workshop space, and giving the work and display areas a much brighter and cleaner look. We’ve had a chance to take a step back and evaluate the workshop space at present as we look at the forthcoming plans we have for supplying bikes. Following talks with Tandem Group, we are now also able to supply our valued customers with some great 2018 models from:
Dawes – a quintessential British brand with a background in tandem and touring bikes, Dawes have developed a solid range of road and hybrid bikes.
Claud Butler – long-established, British bike manufacturer now owned by Tandem Group, who have shown a deep regard for the relaunch of the brand, combining a respect for the company’s original ethos, brand and history. The highlights for us were the relaunched Alpina 27.5 & 29er Cape Wrath 27.5″ wheel MTB and the Radical Gravel Bike.
Squish Bike – A premium quality kids bike brand at a surprisingly reasonable price. Their ethos is one of giving kids a good experience with their first bikes, providing a lightweight well thought out design and construction.
We’re happy to discuss and recommend any of these cycles and would be happy to order in for anyone looking for a new bike this season. Call in email or telephone for further details.
It’s been a busy March and you, our customers and supporters have been putting the poor weather behind you and getting those bikes out of the shed and ready for riding. We had a fantastic weekend at the Pedal and Bus power event at Beamish. We talked and demonstrated maintenance tips to better keep your bike running smoothly. It was fascinating to see that from the Beamish collection and volunteers own vintage machines bike technology has moved on though the basic principles are very similar. It was clear to see that some recent innovations have also been inspired by the past.
At Steel Town Cycles – your independent bike shop – we are always happy to help and advise with all your cycling needs. Service – Repair – Upgrade – Sales.
