Bikes for sale!

Posted by: on Nov 20, 2013 | No Comments

So we’ve been busy renovating a few unwanted steeds and we now have a little fleet of second-hand bikes for sale. They’ve all been serviced and any worn out bits have been replaced with very good used or brand new parts. If you’re looking for something like one of these, you could grab yourself a right bargain.

Of course all of these bikes are available to have a look at and test ride, so pop down and have a look if you think one of them could be for you. And we should also say that you’d do well to check out buddies at The Bristol Bike Project for a larger selection of generally lower-priced but still very good used bikes.
