FullCity Cycles New Bikes
Complete New Bikes and 'From the Box' Builds
When stock is available we can order and build new bicycles from the following manufacturers:
- The Light Blue
- Aventon E-Bikes
- The Light Blue
- Python Bikes
Currently, due to an increase in demand for new bikes, availability is very low, and bikes come in and go out of stock very quickly, so we will load new bikes as they become available.
The bicycle types vary, we have single speed/fixed gear bikes (Python Duke, 6KU and Aventon) and track bicycles (All-City, Aventon); vintage style/Dutch Town bikes (Probike) and sleek hybrids (Bergamot / BLB), indestructable touring bikes (The Light Blue), and road bikes. We now stock E-Bikes by AVENTON. Call us today to arrange a test ride.
All new bikes come with a complimentary 30-day 'break-in tune up'. this allows us to check the bike has settled and is riding well.
Here is a selection of some the models that are currently available, please contact us for more information :
'From the Box' Bike Assembly Service or...'the evolution of bike sales' in the UK
Once upon a time..all bikes were built by hand, by an expert mechanic, and finely tuned ready for sale by another expert mechanic, and then presented to the customer by an independent retailer in what we now call a LBS.
Back in the day, your bike may have come off of a production line, such as the raleigh factory or a smaller independent frame maker in the North of England, but it was sold to you by a shop keeper who knew his customers and knew his products. The bike was in every way a finely tuned machine, and your local bike shop would service it regularly and ensure it was properly maintained.
Times have changed in all areas of retail; fast forward to 2021 and a sudden and desperate need for bikes in an environment forever changed by both a worldwide pandemic and retail challenges beyond our worst expectations..the supply change was broken and we saw a sea change in peoples buying habits.
The internet took over from local shops, successful bike chain stores went out of business, and people started to buy their bikes, partially assembled, directly from an online retailer, and for a while the local bike shop was threatened. But..and there is a but..bikes are machines which need to be properly assembled, finely tuned and kept in their best condition for user safety and optimum performance.
So with that in mind...we now offer a 'from box to road' bike build and tune service for new bikes and are happy to take receipt of your bike direct from the manufacturer on your online retailer .
We offer a range of 'From the Box' services - which include having your bike delivered directly to us, where we assembly your bike, test ride it and fit you to it, ensuring maximal rider comfort. Our 'From the Box' service includes a 30-day 'break-in tune up/adjustment which covers truing the wheels and adjusting brakes and cables after the bike has been ridden in.
Prices (from £45-£85) are dependant on the amount of assembly and time required, factors such as internal cabling or hydraulic brakes will increase the labour time. but one things for sure the difference between a 'good ride' and a mediocre ride is in the assembly, set up and tuning.
Please contact the workshop to arrange drop off and assembly or to advise us that your bike is being delivered directly to Fullcity.
