Create your perfect bike

We offer custom bikes to enable our customers to be able to create the perfect bike for them, whether it’s a case of budget, or looking for something that will meet your riding requirements perfectly.

First things first, we’ll sit down and chat about what you need from your bike. We like to take into consideration what you’ll be using your bike for, any goals you have in mind, and anything that needs to be considered based on your cycling experiences. From budget, durability and fit to weight and speed, we’ll try to gather as much information in the initial stages for us to create something custom to you.

Custom Build Process

Any custom build starts with the frame, it is critical to get the correct size and style for the rider’s needs, this process starts with a few measurements and a discussion about where the bike will predominantly ridden. There is also the question of colour, with most brands there are only one or at the most two options but if you chose Ridley there is an option of a custom colour combination, and a groupset and wheels and some finishing kit and you will have a bespoke bike.

When finished, we’ll run through what you can expect from your bike and can provide a free check-up once you’ve had a chance to get out and about, just to double check that everything’s working for you as it should.

What Our lovely customers Have to say:

a great shopping experience

Just such a great shopping experience, the proprietor massively informative about his products at the same time not pushing for a sale. Makes you comfortable to go back.

honest diagnosis and an extremely fair price

Came away on holiday to nearby Dalbeattie and found that the gears on my practically new bike, had stopped indexing properly. Thinking the Mountain Biking break was going to be ruined (this was lunch time on a Friday!) I gave these guys a call. They were more than happy to fit me in. Bike was sorted within a couple of hours, with an honest diagnosis and an extremely fair price (I honestly expected to be paying double, give they'd squeezed me in!) Can't recommend them enough and would be my go to when I'm back in the area and need some help. Thanks again.

Absolutely fantastic

Absolutely fantastic shop with wonderful owners. I had a bike around 30 years old that has a lot of sentimental value however, was extremely run down. I put it in and was turned around quickly and at an amazing price. Still running great considering its age and forever grateful. Would highly recommend for all your bike needs!

Very efficient and friendly service…

Love, love, love my new bike! Thank you both for all your help and advice. You provide a very efficient and friendly service, and didn’t make me feel out of depth with my lack of technical knowledge! Thank you
