9 GREAT REASONS TO BUY OUR ROAD BIKES

We have ridden a lot of road bikes ourselves and have decades of experience between us and tens of thousands of miles ridden! That’s a lot of genuine understanding and hard-won knowledge. And we are going to share it with you when you come in and choose a bike.
Ours is a popular and long-established independent shop: a lot of bicycle brands and manufacturers would love to have their bikes in Red Kite Cycles… so we are always in the privileged position to choose what we think best for our customers. You can trust our selection based on our decades of experience, local trading and happy Red Kite riders.
We have a long history in supporting women riders and offering women specific fit guidance and advice. We have a full range of women’s bikes from off the peg to full custom loveliness.
You get a lifetime warranty on all our Trek and Enigma bicycle frames. Yes, they are designed and made to such a standard that we offer a lifetime warranty to the original purchaser. You can put in the miles over the years in total confidence that we have all got your back. We like to think that the best bikes come from the best shops and our customers get the best warranty and service support. We are a proper, caring, local independent retailer.
Fantastic ranges of bikes from aluminium all-rounders under £600 to World Championship winning Trek Madones – and everything in between. We offer the best value at every price point. Don’t get seduced by Internet pricing – think about real world value, our technical support, and the bike that you are going to ride for years.
Our bikes fit. Full stop. Nobody leaves the shop with the wrong sized bike, and we always offer our riders an initial set-up and fit service. And as you get onto our carbon, steel and titanium models we are happy to include a full fit service to our customers.
A truly diverse range of models for you to choose from. This is where our experience is really going to show and aid you in choosing the best bike for what you are going to do on it. You have to find the sweet spot of budget, ambition, tech spec and downright style! We start out by listening to what it is that you want to do on the bike and build from there.
We offer all frame technologies from the best sources: carbon fibre, aluminium, steel and titanium. We sell the whole range of Trek bikes, we are sole agents for Bullfinch handbuilt UK steel bikes, and we are one of Enigma’s longest-established specialist dealers for their UK titanium bikes. That’s the best of all technologies available to you.
We just have the best looking bikes… so when all is said and done and your bike is leaned up outside a café, it is going to give you a warm feeling. And that does matter; we won’t let any donkeys leave our store! And that’s because road riding is about effort, quality and style.
