Road / Aero
We understand our range of bikes and can advise you on each bike we have in our range.
Every bike manufacturer claims to have squared the circle of producing the "flexible-rigid" bike, that is a bike with excellent power delivery together with compliant ride quality. We have particularly looked for those bikes that get closer to this ideal than others. We also believe you do not need to be a contortionists to ride a performance bike. Whether it's the scenic costal paths or the glorious Black Mountains our local cycling is some of the best and most varied in the country, we can help you make sure you have a bike that suits you and your needs.
At increasing speed, air resistance becomes increasingly important. Aero-bikes cut through the air better than other bikes but they are not suitable for everyone or every event. When Romain Bardet came second in the Tour de France (2016) he used the Focus Izalco Max (a non-aero bike) in the time trial, the previous year Froome only changed to an aero-bike for the second part of the time trail. The bike frame is only 10% of your air resistance, you are 80%. Choosing an aero frame has significant affects on weight, handling and ride quality; make sure you are making the right choice.
