S-Works Sagan Collection Tarmac Disc

Green and glittering are two adjectives that sum up six-time Tour de France green jersey winner, Peter Sagan, pretty well, so it seems fitting that his latest signature collection for Specialized should feature plenty of green (well, ‘teal’) and glittery paintwork. While we like to think that the bold paintwork represents the World Champion’s.... More

Green and glittering are two adjectives that sum up six-time Tour de France green jersey winner, Peter Sagan pretty well, so it seems fitting that his latest signature collection for Specialized should feature plenty of green (well, ‘teal’) and glittery paintwork.

Orbea Gain Arrives

The new Orbea Gain range of road, gravel and hybrid ebikes is probably the most exciting range of ebikes we’ve ever seen here at Biketreks.  A brief carpark test of a prototype model on a rainy September’s day was enough to convince me that they’d hit upon a winning formula and since.... More

A quick look at a few MTB offerings from Orbea–our newest brand!

With some manufacturers it can be really tough to decide whether there is a place for them in our shop. There are pros and cons to be weighed up, figures to be checked and double checked, and all before we try to work out if anyone would actually buy their bikes! With other companies, the fit is so....

Ings and Their Shoe Fetish!

Is it just me or are roadies collectors of shoes?  If my stock count is anything to go by in Ings there must be no road shoes left in the world as Mike and Keith are hoarding them all there! With the summer weather looking somewhat behind us now we have some great discounts to be found.... More

SAD Bike List (Soiled and Damaged) and Dusty Discounts!

You may or may not know that our Ambleside store is under going quite a large renovation at present.  Our retail space is less than a third of what is was until we are nearing completion around the end of July. Due to the work we have many of our precious things in boxes, but sadly not.... More

The Orange Pop and Zest–Next Generation Bikes!

Remember your first bike? I don’t mean your first ‘proper’ bike, I mean the bike you actually learned to ride on. The chances are it was probably pretty crap.

New Bags and Clothing from Dakine!

       If there is a company which defines ‘dude’ culture, it has to be Dakine. Any brand which puts its name to the Party Bucket – a cooler bag capable of carrying several gallons of booze – clearly knows exactly what its main market is after. Sadly, we won’t be stocking any Party Buckets this summer, nor will.... More

I know, I know, we’ve not even hit “in season” for 2018 bikes and already Specialized have jumped the gun with the new Stumpjumper.  It was too good to keep under wraps until June when everyone else will launch, and after meeting in a hotel to see the bikes a month or so a go on an “invite....

Void Cycle Clothing Collection Lands–Part 2

As their website strapline puts it so brilliantly ‘Bring Fashion to Cycling’.  We would go much further than that, in the sense VOID brings fashion, style, function, quality and a certain understated / under the radar stealth element many cycling brands would sell their family for!

The all new Blur and Highball – Next Gen XC Race Bike from Santa Cruz!

It’s fair to say that XC’s popularity has waned over the last few years. The ever increasing popularity of the Enduro race format, and the culture surrounding it, has squeezed good old fashioned XC bikes into the fringes. Maybe that’s just it. Maybe XC’s old fashioned approach has alienated the modern rider. Maybe the SRAM Eagle generation, with.... More
