A new service for your mail order bikes

With an increasing number of bike brands now opting to sell bikes online rather than through a dealer, it may be that the only option to buy the bike of your dreams is to purchase online via mail order. This may work for some, but what if you don't know where to start assembling and setting up your bike when it arrives. Correct assembly and set up of your bike is vital if you want your new bike to be safe and ride efficiently, as well as avoiding premature wear of components. You can now have your mail order bike sent directly to us (with prior arrangement) for assembly/pre ride service. We'll unbox and check for shipping damage, assemble, adjust brakes and gears, Inflate tyres, check wheels

His name is Tim and his wife was taken poorly wit

Bontrager Rapid Pack review
