2020 road bikes

Make 2020 the year you smash your targets, beat your Strava goals and ride further than any other year. We want to help you achieve that with one of our shiny new road bikes. We have new models from Trek, Giant and Specialized in stock and every single of them can help you maximise your potential. Carbon framed and disc brake ready, these new models don’t cut corners when it comes to performance. If you’re a sportive chaser, club racer or café stop rider, it’s time to exercise the n+1 rule (‘n’ being the number of bikes you already own).

Eat some dust

You’ve read how much we love gravel riding at the Bicycle Chain and these new bikes from Specialized, Trek and Giant make us want to get out on those dusty bridleways right away. These bikes are all about comfort and practicability on long rides. As a result, they are perfect companions for all-weather training, gravel sportives and adventure cycle holidays. If you’re thinking of getting into gravel riding, do make sure to check out last week’s post which explores the key to gravel riding.

New trail smashers

We have been busy building up the 2020 range of hardtail and suspension mountain bikes all more than ready to shred some trails. You can’t go wrong with these new models from Trek and Giant and of course, the ever reliable Specialized Enduro range. These performance mountain bikes can help you get the best out of your riding and most of all, they are tons of fun to ride. Our off-road range is also perfect for long days in the saddle so can help you make 2020 the year you ride an off-road century.

Making your way downtown

It’s never been easier to ride to your place of work and look good while doing it, all thanks to some brilliantly designed hybrid bikes. This type is also an exemplary multi-tasker, ideal for everyday use on the commute, getting fitter and for errands in town. One that stands out from the crowd this year is Specialized’s Sirrus X range, a beautiful looking bike that is perfect for riders looking to smash their fitness goals.

Go electric

We have already been through how great the 2020 Specialized Levo SL is, but what other electric bikes have been released this year? Whether you’re an off-roader, roadie, leisure cyclist or gravel enthusiast, we have the right electric bike for you. The e-bike market has exploded over the last couple of years, with every brand pitching for your attention. So, let’s make it easier for them. Here at the Bicycle Chain we have a huge catalogue of power-assisted bikes for every discipline, so whether you’re on a budget or want the top of the market, we have you covered. E-bikes will help you get up those pesky climbs, beat the traffic and stay in the saddle for longer and faster than ever before.

As well as these new launches for 2020, we’re also in the midst of a spectacular sale of our 2019 stock. So, come in to one of our stores, speak to one of our team and see what the Bicycle Chain can do for you.
