Our partner retailers are some of the best in the industry. We know we bang on about this, but it’s true, and we’ll continue to make a point of it as regularly as we can.
This month, we’ll be shouting about a retailer who specialise in the more bespoke and exotic side of cycling, stocking drool-worthy brands such as Independent Fabrication, Moots, Zullo, ColourBolt, Time, Cipollini and Lynskey. With a very good reputation in the local area these guys have always considered themselves the underdog (and we all love an underdog) but in the last year they have shown themselves to be a force to be reckoned with in the north London area.
April: Bikmo Retailer of the Month
Here at Bikmo, we’re all passionate cyclists whether it’s road, mountain, gravel or cyclocross, we have it covered. Not a week goes by without one of us seeking out our local bike shop for a tune up or some shiny new kit. Because we’ve grown up spending more time in bike shops than is healthy, we know the value of forming great relationships with a local bike shop and the value they add for our customers. Nowhere in the world can you find a staple of independently run local bike retailers offering the range of services and brands of those in the UK.
With each shop comes a different feel and identity and our April Retailer of the Month is no different. With most brands now adopting a similar approach to manufacturing it leaves us with less to differentiate between them other than what Shimano components it might have or what colour it’s painted. Well not here, from the moment you walk in you’re met by the ultimate in custom design from brands we’re not used to seeing on a day to day basis. It’s a treat for any cycling geek to just have a look around and mentally spend more money than a small car would cost. Add to this, one of the most respected bike fitters in London, Roger Graves, who also helps design some of the bikes from ColourBolt and you have winning combination – it’s not just us that think so, having just won “Independent Bike Shop of the Year” at the recent BikeBiz awards.
So, without further ado…..
…we’re awarding our ‘Retailer of the Month’ for April to…..Velorution
