On September 1st STC will be 5 years old. We’ve helped many of you over the years, some that are still riding, some that aren’t. You’re all brilliant for your different reasons. We’re looking forward to another 5 years and for many more folks helped to enjoy their cycling. We aren’t going anywhere forward without you. No rider left behind. So from the bottom of the STC family hearts we salute you. Chapeau!!!
Some pictures of bikes and guys that have called by over the years.
As a former racing cyclist our owner/mechanic Jonathan set up Steel Town Cycles with the vision of giving our passion and experience back. Over a lifetime of riding bicycles of various types and in various disciplines, Mountain bike, Road and cyclocross to name a few we’ve picked up a thing or two. Always happy to have a chat and give advice or simply to repair those bike issues that you have.
Part of the function of a small independent bike shop is to be the place you can drop in for advice. We are a cycling community hub, pun intended. We have plenty of that! Though our love is for Road/Gravel riding these days, we are comfortable and proficient at repairs on many different types of bike. What you pay for at Steel Town Cycles is that up to date knowledge and a Cytech Technician. You can be assured that your bike will be treated like our own. We are professional and fully insured, unlike some.
In moving forward we are beginning to stock refurbished bikes, we currently have a small collection, and will buy your old ones too, wether it be trading them in or just wanting someone else to get some use out of a good quality bike.
As some will already know we have moved the shop to Derwent Street. It’s bigger and will allow us to develop what we can offer. New signs will be going up soon to make us easier to find.
We still sell many accessories and commonly needed repair items. We’d love to be celebrating our 10th and 15th anniversary with you guys but we need your help. Spread the word, tell all of your friends and family where we are. If you live in Blackhill tell people who ask there is a bike shop here. We have lots more things that we can offer but only by your continued support.
On Saturday 28th of August, it’s National Bike Shop day. Much like National record shop day it aims to highlight just how vitality important a resource we are. Use it or loose it! It also gives our customers new and existing a chance to celebrate the glory of 2 wheels or 3 if you ride a trike 😁. It’s in its infancy only the 3rd year, so go on support your local community bike shop on August 28th. We’ll be open from 10am – 17:30. We are friendly and not in the slightest bit elitist. Cycling is for everyone can be inexpensive. It’s one of the best ways to appreciate the fabulous countryside that we have. Make a day of it take a picnic.
