Free blackberries, morning chill and the unmistakable smell of Autumn in the hedgerows. A great time to be out, with those evening rides ending in glorious sunsets – but do remember to take some lights with you, even if only pin lights. An extra one on the back of your helmet is a must if

Testimonials

Just wanted to say thank you again for the support you gave me for the Lands End to John 0 Groats ride – your advice was spot on. I’m so glad your advice on the comfort side – both in choosing a comfortable bike (Trek 4.5), and through the bike fit you did for me. You guys are all obviously good at what you do … and it made a big difference.

Shop team got the bike ready for my weekend ride – despite the time pressure
I have the highest regard for Cycle-ops. The staff! have dealt with are friendly and knowledgeable. I use them because they know what they are talking about, and give balanced advice. I was particularly impressed with their bike fit service, and would recommend it to anyone who is looking to cycle on a regular basis.
No more back pain, and enjoying my cycling over the summer

The fit was great thanks. The insoles have made a difference.

Well what can I say, simply stunning. Not sure whose legs I now have but they can’t be mine. More power feels about one gear worth also no back pain. Feels like a new bike a much better one.
“The staff are helpful and courteous. Before i took the bike they insisted i ride it, so that they could make adjustments and answer any queries i might have. They patiently went through the Brompton folding / unfolding process with me. I would definitely recommend them.”

“Regarding recent service work on my Madone…on this mornings hill session the bike was perfect, indeed like a new machine. Please pass on my thanks to the mechanic – great service.”
Just a quick note to say thank-you for the insert fitting and putting the cleats on my shoes in the correct place, it made a massive difference on the Kentish Killer with my climbing.

Feels like a new bike, a much better one.

Very pleased with the service from Cycle-ops. I initially travelled there for a CycleFit. I found the service to be good overall. Without their advice I am sure I would have made pretty big error in bike choice. My P1 Madone (I bought as a result of the fit) is really one of the smoothest / best bikes out there.

I think it may have been the best £100 I’ve spent in a long time! It was a real oversight n to get my set-up properly sorted out before now. While it would be an exaggeration to say that the adjustments have completely transformed my riding, it has certainly made a significant difference already. There is no doubt that I am in a better position to deliver more power (what little I have) more efficiently to the road, to the extent that I took on Kidds Hill in the Ashdown

Paul was very professional and knowledgeable, and made the whole process a joy to go through. I got 150 miles in the legs this weekend and felt like 1 was climbing particularly well after the changes.

Service / repairs / mechanics can’t be faulted. Good job done very time
The bike is really good, as I already said to Paul, the brakes are fantastic. I’ve really seen a big improvement in my climbing! Front end is maybe a little harsh but as most the roads we ride aren’t that bad and 100km is about as far as I ride this doesn’t cause me any problems. In terms of the process/experience, I trusted Paul to get on with it in the hope he would get it right. Judging by Strava and the fact I’m happy just to stare at the bike looks like he did.

Always helpful and professional

Regarding recent service work on my Madone 5.2 … on this mornings hill session the bike was perfect, indeed like a new machine. Please pass on my thanks to the mechanic ­great service.

I have been waxing lyrically about your shop and how helpful you were to all my friends, you never know I may even buy a properly fitted bike from you sometime soon.
“I shoud have had my bike fitted a long time ago. It has made me so much more comfortable on my bike. The technician was very good at explaining what they were doing and the fitting was much longer and detailed than expected. All the details were covered and it was good value for money. Really good service, i would recommend to all.”
