Behind bars is owned and run by Mark and Lee, between them they have over 50 years of experience within the bike trade. Mark looks after the shop business whilst Lee concentrates on the smooth running of the busy workshop with James and Young Will.
They take pride in the service they provide to customers, both new and long-standing, attending to the customer's needs from a simple tube replacement to a full custom rebuild.

The shop has been extended over the years to deal with the demands placed on the workshop and to increase the range of bicycles and accessories. We have been fortunate with our location which has always been able to offer free outside parking. Great for collecting or offloading bike repairs, this area is also a great place to ride a bike before you buy. All our bikes are available to try first and weekend demonstration bikes can be reserved.

We have always done our best to offer a balanced choice of bikes, Marin have been with us since the start. They have a great track record and we believe they are the best with prices now from as little as 300. Our suppliers ATB Sales also hold other top brands in the cycling world.
However, we recognise they are not within everyone's budget and we stock a choice of alternative brands such as Falcon, GT, Landrover, Wilier and Whyte which are all competitively priced. We used to specialise in the top end mountain bikes and whilst we still support a great deal of enthusiasts and sponsored riders, we have developed expertise in a whole range of bike types, from children's bikes, child seats and tag-alongs to electric bikes and bikes for everyday use. You are welcome to visit us and hope to see you soon.
