For those of you with Christmas money burning a hole in your pocket, I might just have the solution to your problem. Take a moment to investigate our road bike section on your next visit to the store, if you're quick you might just sight the Specialized McLaren collaboration bike, the S-Works Venge; Seriously, it's worth a visit for this machine alone, state of the art perfection costing a cool 12k! Interested?

(That money burning a hole in your pocket, well I'm sure it would make a suitable deposit for one of our great interest free deals :) The electric bike revolution appears to be upon us too, it's been a slow burner and waiting in the wings for some time but technology has moved on generously to give Dales some great new offerings from Scott.

The showroom now boasts a range of 4 Scott E-bikes, so if you enjoy the freedom of cycling but are not so keen on the sweat and strain we might just have the solution. Test bikes are available for you as we speak, if you would like a quick spin don't be shy of giving us a quick call or email our resident E-Bike resident- [email protected].

Thanks for your support over the festive season both in store & online & I'd like to wish you a happy new year on behalf of everyone at Dales Cycles!
