We Build and Set up Your Bike Correctly

Here at Cycle Revolution, we only do things properly.


No Half jobs, No that’ll do’s, No Bodges.




This is why when you purchase a bike from us, whether it’s in-store or online, it is always built by our Fully Qualified CyTech Mechanics. We remove the bike from the box, take off all packaging, inspect the entire bike for any issues that are visible or that may arise in the future, fully set the bike up to the best working order possible and make sure it is absolutely safe.

All of our bikes are set up how we would ride them and we take complete pride in the way we work. We won’t leave hydraulic hoses to long, we don’t ‘hope for the best’ with bar angle, it is as it should be.

If you have purchased the bike online, we give you the same treatment. When the bike is completed, we then dis-assembled it just enough to fit in a box, so you have an easier time when it arrives with you. Every component pre-greased and pre-lubed, just the front wheel in, a few bolts and the pedals and your ready to go.


You should never settle for anything less.
