About Us

We are a family run business with over 65 years experience in the bike trade. Based in Edinburgh city centre just a short walk from Princes Street we have been here since 1937 making us one of the UK's longest running family owned bike shops..

Well known for Raleigh and Diamondback we have introduced Kona, Giant, DMR, Haro and Dawes over the last few years and now do a far larger range of components from the likes of Marzocchi, Hope, DMR, Raceface, TroyLee, SRAM, and Fox.
Why not pop in and look at some of the ever increasing range of brands we stock. With a quick workshop turnaround we will always endeavour to help you fix your problem.

Our Product Range

Our main bike brands include Giant, Kona, Raleigh, Diamondback, Dawes, DMR, Haro, Corratec and Dahon.

From Giant we pick a selection of their bikes including entry level Revel and a full selection of Boulder, Talon, XTC, Anthem, Faith , Reign , STP, Brass and Trance series, hybrid or city bikes from the CRS, FCR and Expression range , touring bikes, road and full racing bikes from the SCR and TCR and Advanced range and the increasingly popular TCX cyclecross range. Since Giant make 5.5+ million bikes a year very few brands can offer such good value and innovation. Little wonder 8 of the best known bike brands in the world get Giant to build their bikes. Giant probably have the most sophisticated carbon fiber production plant in the bike trade so all their carbon and carbon alloy hybrids are at the cutting edge of technology.

From Kona we select a full range of mountain for cross country, dirt jump, freeride and downhill all ideal for Glentress, Innerleithen, or any of the other Forestry Commission's 7 stanes sites in Scotland. Kona are one of the most common makes to see at the hire centres which is a good indication of reliability and value. We also keep a range of fast commuting hybrids and town bikes. We usually have a range of Fire Mountain, Cindercone, Blast, Caldera Stinky, Abracadabra , Operator, CoilAir and Bass . We have the Cowan, Stuff and Shred from the dirt jump range and the Kula, Zing, Dew, Lisa and Jake range in stock to view. We keep a wide spread of models within the range from the standard to Deluxe, Primo and top of the range Supreme.

From Raleigh we keep a good cross section of the range. We have delt with Raleigh for over 50 Years so no one in Edinburgh or probably Scotland knows more about them. We particularly like their kids range as it offers quality and looks they will love. Raleigh has also reintroduced the world famous Chopper after almost 30 years. Raleigh also offer a great range of comfort hybrids and mountainbikes with upright riding positions for someone just wanting to enjoy their cycling. We keep the Metro, Voyager, Freeride, Explore, Venture, M-Trax and Airlite ranges in stock most of the year.

Diamondback have their roots back in the early days of BMX which shows in their range from the cheapest Voxx to the top line Fubar. Their mountain bike range also offers some upmarket design features at very reasonable prices. Their full suspension bikes are hard to tell apart from some far dearer brands. They have recently updated the MTB models bringin back some old names like Sorrento, Apex, Peak and Outlook.

Dawes are a well known British manafacturer who have been on the go since the 1920's. Their touring bikes particularly the Galaxy have been the benchmark for generations of tourers. We also keep a wide selection of their Discovery hybrid and Giro road bikes. Dawes have introduced some kids bikes to the range all with light alloy frames . You can see more in the Dawes section.

Haro have been at the top of the BMX scene for over 25 years so it dosn't take much to realise why we have them in stock. Their team riders have a lot of input designing the range .

DMR . For 2012 we have DMR bikes in stock with a selection of Drone's and Reptoids in both 24" and 26" wheel sizesand access to a wide range of DMR parts range.

We keep parts clothing and accessories from 661 Abus, Altura, Avenir, Avid, Azonic, Aztec, Bianchi, Bloc Sunglasses, Brooks, Camelbak, Campagnolo, Carradice, Cateye, Clarks, Continental, Coalition, Crank Bros, Crud, Cyclo, Cyclops, Dahon, De Marchi, Diadora, Diamondback, DMR, DT Swiss, Duro, E 13, FBM, Fibrax, Finishline, Fit Bikes, Flinger, 4Down, Fox Suspension, FSA, Giant, Goodridge, Hamax, Haro, Hayes, Hollywood, Hope Tecnologies, ITM, Kenda, Kona, KMC, Lezyne tools, Look, Lord, Lusso, Madison, Marzocchi, Mavic, Maxxis, Met, Michelin, Miche, Middleburn, Minoura, MKS, Nokian, Nutrak, Odyssey, OK Baby, Outland, Oxford, Onza, Panaracer, Park, Polar, Power Bar, Protec, Raceface, Raleigh, Richey, Rock Shox, Saris Racks, Schwalbe, SDG, Serfas, Shimano, SKS, Smart, Spencer, SRAM, Stan's no tubes, Stendec, Sturmey Archer, Sun Ringle, Suntour, S & M, Tagalong, Time, Tioga, Titec, Tortec, Troy Lee Designs, Truflo, Truvative, United, White Lightning, WTB, X Lite, Zefal to Zeal Optics.
