Feeling the love!!
We are so excited with the amazing feedback from last weeks blog. We had loads of lovely comments (yes we do read them all) and it reached over 2,000 people!! This is down to you guys sharing the post (and the love!!) It can be tough out there for small shops but getting this kind of feedback makes that fight all worth while. So this week we want to continue on that theme of “why us?” and “what we can do for you”?
Use our knowledge, its what we do!
There are so many bad reviews on bikes and products that its hard to work out whats true and whats not. We find that many of the bad reviews that we read are more likely down to “user error” rather than a bad product. We work day in day out with these products so we can give you proper feedback and information on what we like. Also, to coin Paul’s favourite phrase “it’s not all about the best, it’s about what’s best for you”!!
Test ride the bikes before you buy
Unlike Brexit you don’t need to go into buying a new bike blind!!! We want you to try out the bike first and then by giving us your feedback we can help you get it right. We have mentioned this before but we cannot highlight enough the Giant Demo Bike programme and how easy this is to arrange. Just enter a few details online and then come in and collect the bike from us all ready to ride!!
Just for you!
Alternatively, have a custom bike built by us! We are seeing more and more of these and actually have two in the stands being built today. We absolutely love doing this for customers, from sitting down and planning over a cup of coffee to seeing it all come together (it almost doesn’t feel like work)!!
Kinesis is our go to bike for complete custom builds (Paul’s current jigsaw pictured above), as mentioned in a previous blog Paul has his own Kinesis so can talk all day about this (and generally does!!) Because of our relationship with Kinesis we can offer demo bikes from them which they don’t mention on their website.
Forme, a UK based company also offer a Tailor Build Program which provides the option to customise handlebar width, stem length, tyre requirements, groupset, different levels of frames and a choice of wheels. A personal bike fit by us is also included in the within this program. Currently we have a good selection of Forme Tailor Build bike examples in-store for you to come and look at.
The Forme Calver SLC is currently ridden by newly crowned National Cyclo-Cross Champion Grant Furguson aswell as the National number 2, local lad Ian Field.
