Shipping & Delivery



PARTS & ACCESSORIES - Shipping on all parts and accessories is FREE to UK addresses.

Medium sized parts and accessories are sent by MyHermes on a 3-5 day, 48 or 24 hour service (depending on location and size/weight). Small items are sent by My Hermes 3-5 day service or standard Royal Mail 1st class. We strive to despatch all orders within 48 hours of the order being placed. Our Express shipping courier does not deliver at weekends or Bank Holidays.

Orders placed before 9am GMT (with standard or express shipping option) are normally despatched on the same day. However, during busy periods it may be upto 48 hours before orders are despatched.

BIKES/FRAMES  - Delivered FREE OF CHARGE - boxed (with some final assembly required) usually with TNT. (excluding highlands and islands and N. Ireland - please contact us first if you want a bike shipping to these areas.)

Boxed bikes are usually despatched within 2-3 days of receiving your order (for stock bikes).

PLEASE NOTE - if you are using a 'cyclescheme' voucher for payment either in full or part there may be a nominal fee charged for delivery dependent on distance (we are charged 10% of the sale, sometimes more, when a cyclescsheme voucher is used).


You might notice that the packaging on your order isn't 'new'. This is because we try to re-use our own and other peoples' discarded packaging. This is good for two reasons; 1) Simple - we're recycling so less is going to landfill or being shipped to China for 'recycling' & 2) It does mean we can pass on some small savings to you - small - but we all like saving! We hope you continue to re-use the packaging once you have received your goods! In general our bikes come packaged in their factory packaging which we hope you will recycle!
