Cowley Cycles, established in 1982, is a friendly, approachable Independent retailer aiming to offer down to earth advice whilst meeting the needs of each cyclist as an individual.
This website is a catalogue of our recommendations and offers, plus links to the leading brands of which we are stockists to show the full ranges available. If you are unsure which type of bike you need, have a read of our guide or call into the shop and have a chat. We also have full workshop facilities to service/repair your bicycle with extensive knowledge of Shimano and Rohloff hub gears as well as derailleur electronic gear shift systems.
Whether you are a professional or recreational rider, getting the proper bike fit is an effective and economical way to improve your riding experience. All bodies are different and your riding position should be tailored to suit your bio-mechanics. By achieving an optimal fit on your bicycle, you in turn maximise comfort, control and efficiency.
The session involves a review of customer’s riding style and objectives, rider’s flexibility and range of movement as well as observations whilst riding ( a static trainer is used for this). The fit session takes about 2 hours and covers the set up of one bike and shoe cleat alignment. The sessions are run at the shop out of normal shop hours starting at 5.30pm usually either Monday or Friday evenings and arranged by appointment.
Our workshop is fully equipped to cater for all types of cycle service and repair needs whether its a quick tune up for your 3 speed internal hub gear, specialist Rohloff hub or Shimano DI2 high speed racing machine. Our team of Cytech qualified technician’s will give your cycle all the attention it needs to ensure it keeps performing. We have a simple approach to work scheduling – no need to make a booking just bring your bike along and most basic work is completed for either same day or next day collection.
