New Eddys

After a brief delay we've had some shiny new Merckx in to complete the lineup.

The award winning AMX-1 alloy bike at a more accessible £999 price point is in, as is the stunning EMX-3 Centaur at £2199 with Fulcrum racing wheels and campag Centaur carbon groupset.

Below is the new EMX-1 peleton.  Now, this frameset doesn't have the internal cable routing of the EMX-3 but it has the same CL+ full carbon layup, carbon fork, Shimano 105 shifting, Shimano wheels and FSA/Prologo finishing kit, and it's £1599 (I know, we cant quite believe it either)

We now have an EMX Test Bike available that you can book to ride too

Time for Time

There are certain companies that just have to forge their own path in pursuit of excellence.  Time is one of them.  Time produce boutique carbon fibre framesets in France using a very very controlled carbon process. Time weave their own carbon fibres and form them around wax moulds allowing better control of layup, wall thicknesses and voids.  There is no carbon fibre bike that rides quite like a Time.

The model below is the Fluidity S 'Black Label'; a bike described by Cycling Plus Magazine as: "The best sportive frame on the market" -

Pashleys are just nice

A lot has happened in such a small space of time, so much so that we haven't really had time to get stuff updated so there are a lot of updates coming at once!

First off, We've had our first delivery of Pashley.  Pashley are synonymous with British quality, having been handbuilt in Stratford-upon-Avon since 1926.

6 months in, what's going on?

As some of you might be aware we've really neglected the blog recently and we've found Facebook ( ) and Twitter ( @kineticbicycles ) an easier medium to quickly keep people up-to-date as oppsoed to long, rambling blog posts.

But enough of that....

So, it's a week shy of 6 months since we opened the doors and a lot has changed.  The stress and chaos of preparing a shop to open have been replace with the stress and chaos of a business that has grown far quicker than any of us anticipated.  We have had a fully booked workshop since the 2nd month and we've doubled our staff.  We've gone from an initial portfolio of 4 brands to a burgeoning portfolio that now includes Specialized, Ridgeback, Genesis, Pashley, Moda, Mondraker, Eddy Merckx, Yeti, Singular and Time, alongside clothing from Endura, Fox Racing and Pearl Izumi and quality accessories from the likes of GoPro, Brooks, Camelbak, Evoc to name but a very, very few.  And that's not to forget the BMX and scooter boys too!

So what's next?  Well, after a summer that lasted for about a fortnight we've got our first christmas to look forward to.  Alongside the traditional christmas trade, we're also going to be promoting a range of awesome stocking fillers, a christmas idea gift list and Emma is going to be putting together a cycling twist on the traditional Christmas Hamper.

On a non-festive note, we've got a swanky new website being built by our friends at which will be going live in early October.  This will have a groovy news feed as well as info on us, our brands and an online booking system for the workshop.

As much of a cliche as it is, by liking us on facebook it provides an easier access point for information on what we've got going on, events and rides we will be holding and a viewpoint into the murky world of running a bike shop. - or Twitter @KineticBicycles
