Bargain Price IXFS Sold out!

We've finally sold the last of the UK based stock of the Downtube IXFS. The bad news is, that means no more super-bargain bikes. The good news is, we'll soon be able to offer the entire range of Downtube bikes. These will ship from the USA, but we're working on 3-4 day airmail shipping, with all duty paid in advance, so it's just as quick as a UK based bike, and there are no extra charges - everything is included in the upfront price. I hope these bikes will be on the site in the next 2 weeks, so keep your eyes open!

Lockblocks FINALLY in stock!

Being a small new bike business is not easy. The big distributors don't want to deal with you, and the small ones are run by enthusiasts with problems of their own.

We've had some great lights, with enormous output for the money, sitting on the shelf for several months, but couldn't sell them because we didn't have suitable bike mounts. Twofish make the fantastic LockBlocks system, which we wanted, but they almost went out of business because their manufacturing partner decided to take 4 months to deliver, instead of 7 days. Thankfully, they came through in the end, and now we have the mounts too. Shortly, the new lights will be added to the site, as will LockBlocks, and of course, we'll offer a special price if you buy the two together.

We also nearly got mudguard mounts, but a small issue there has blocked us. Expect them soon. Finally, we plan to try again for Nutcase helmets soon. They're not easy to get hold of, but they're so cool, and we feel like you deserve them.....
