KTM Electric bikes now in stock!
The KTM Electric bike range is awesome – these are quality machines made in Austria, using the Bosch mid drive system (many of the range using the CX Performance motor which gives you huge off-road torque when you need it). We only have a few in stock at the moment, but any of the bikes from the range can be ordered, and as long as they are in stock in Austria, they can be here usually within 1 week approx.
Chris’s Cycles are an approved Bosch Service agent.
Parts and Accessories
We stock a wide range of selected parts and accessories for your bike, to enhance your cycling experience or add more comfort and practicality to your bike. All items can be fitted if required, but there may be additional charges for this depending on what is involved.
Repairs, servicing and maintenance
Buying a bicycle is only the start of it – to keep it in peak condition you need to maintain it regularly.
Our service department is equipped to deal with all aspects of repair, service or maintenance; whether you just need a quick adjustment, a cable replaced, new brakes or tyres – the list is endless, but you can rest assured that all work carried out on your bicycle is not only very competitively priced, it is carried out by a cycle mechanic with over 40 years experience. We are also an authorised BOSCH service & repair centre.
All work is fully insured and you can choose how much you want to spend depending on the level of work required. Anything from a simple replacement of parts to a full-blown stripdown service is possible, and you can ask for a free estimate or quote before any work is carried out.
You will be advised by the mechanic as to likely repair charges, but if you decide that you cannot warrant spending too much on an old bicycle, why not have a look at our fully serviced second hand bicycles? You can sometimes buy one of these for less than the cost of extensive repairs on your own bike.
We try to keep turnaround times as quick as possible on repairs, but obviously this will depend on how many we have in at any one time. Our aim is to complete repairs within 2-3 days for minor or medium works, or within a week for bigger jobs. If it is a quick easy job we can very often do this while you wait.
Payment is accepted by cash or card (sorry, no cheques) and should be made on collection of your bicycle.
We have in stock a selection of electric bikes KTM,VOLT, Gepida, Byocycles and Roodog as well as bicycles from Claud Butler and Dawes, ranging from a small childs balance bike, through small bikes with 16”/18” wheels and stabilisers, childrens bikes with 20”/24”/26” wheels right up to adult Mountain / Hybrid / Touring / Road bikes. If we do not have the bike you want in the required size, they can be ordered in on short deliveries (carriage charges may apply).
These are not available on mail order as we prefer to sell properly assembled and checked bicycles for collection by the buyer. We can then be sure that the bicycle is safe for you to ride and we offer a free safety check / first service on it after 10-12 weeks of ownership to make any slight adjustments that may be necessary as things settle in.
We feel this gives a better service than selling bikes in boxes, which you then have to either set up yourself or pay someone else to do it for you. The price we charge is competitive with the online ‘boxed bike’ sellers but is for a fully assembled and checked bicycle, giving you peace of mind that it safe to ride.
Payment can be made by cash or card when you collect your bicycle (sorry, we are unable to accept cheques).
Good Choice Of New, Used and 2nd Hand Bikes In Stock
The 2nd Hand Bikes for sale have been stripped down to the bare frame, so everything can be checked – the bearings and bearing races, the integrity of the frame, function of all parts and if the frame is tatty, it is prepped and repainted.
All parts are checked for usability and replaced if they are beyond help (chain, cables, tyres, bearings, brakes, grips, gear shifters, etc.), then the wheels are checked for true alignment and adjusted where necessary, with spokes replaced if needed and hubs stripped out to check bearings and axles. After everything is given a good clean the bike is reassembled with new grease in all of the bearings, then everything is adjusted to perform as it should. Once that is done the bike is test ridden and advertised for sale.
