We can also support you in your new bike purchase. Making sure that you have the correct bike for your intended riding. An MTB isn’t necessarily the best choice for riding the bridleways.

With gearing to suit multiple terrain. We have a Claud Butler EXP 2.0 in stock £549, that’s a lot of bike for a small price. It’s not lacking on quality either with a strong but lightweight Aluminium frame, Shimano gears and powerful disc brakes. We also have Dawes Hybrids available to order.

Have a need for Off-road speed! Why not choose one of Claud Butlers awesome range of Gravel Bikes.

A gravel bike is a bike that has many uses. Fast bridle way, Forrest roads or the odd bits of tarmac. It’s a bike capable of it all. Stick some mudguards on it and it will serve you well for light touring or bike packing. Adventures are what these bikes are made for. With the Claud Butler range we are confident that you’ll find a bike to Suit your budget.

Steel Town Cycles – Here to Serve

Steel Town Cycles is small independent bike shop based near Durham in the north east. We set up as a bicycle service and repair shop. Though we are now in our fifth year, our mission has remained very similar. To deliver the best in service and repair County Durham.

We are a small operation, but aim to treat every bike like our own. Due to this we may have longer turnaround times than most shops, however we are not a typical shop.

We provide the best advice that we can to help you get the most out of your cycling, wether it is helping you to choose the right tyres up to helping you to build up your own bespoke bike. We are by no means an elitist experience. All bikes no matter what brand or type are serviced.

We are working towards sourcing sale bikes, though this may not be in 2021 as many of our suppliers are out of stock or have long lead times. Preparation is the key at the moment. If you want a new bike for this year plan ahead and be prepared to wait.

We have a fully equipped workshop and can do most bike servicing and repairs. We are fully insured to work on your bikes. This is critical to ensure that you, the customer, have confidence in leaving your pride and joy with us. We are also members of the trade body; the Association of Cycle Traders and have Cytech Accredited shop status. We have an in-house wheel builder and we can supply all the parts for your perfect custom wheel set, whatever your requirements may be.

One of the services we offer is custom building of a cycle. We help you select the perfect build for yourself, depending on your requirements. It could be the ideal commuter bike, road or gravel/adventure bike. We can build any bikes. Though we specialise in Road, Gravel and Hybrid bikes. Mainly due to the area we live in and the scope of terrain on offer.

This is one our latest projects, a Kinesis Tripster ATR V3.

The customer supplied some well loved Campagnolo parts, a particular favourite of ours. We run Campagnolo on one of our own bikes and have 15 years + experience of working on and repairing this high end manufacturers equipment. This was quite a high budget build, however the spend is entirely up to you. We’ll make our recommendations and then build to your specifications.

So, wether it’s a bell you want, a puncture repair, getting an old treasured bike back in working order, a full refurb or a custom built masterpiece. Steel Town Cycles are here to serve our community and beyond. Go on treat your bike well this year.
