Go further than ever in 2020

We think that a new bike is the best Christmas present going. Of course, we’re a little biased, but that new bike feeling takes some beating. We felt it when we were kids at Christmas, and we can’t say we still don’t feel it when we watch a happy customer pedal away on a new ride.

At Bicycle Chain we have a huge range of road bikes for riders of all shapes, sizes and disciplines. From top of the range carbon power machines to economical commuter options, we’ve got you covered.

We stock the likes of Giant, Liv, Trek and Specialized, so come down to Bicycle Chain and one of our lovely staff will help you find the perfect bike for 2020. Let’s make it the year you ride further, climb higher and go faster than ever before, and we’ll be here for you every step of the way.

Stay warm this winter

We’re in for a wet and cold winter, so let’s fight the chill with some new winter kit. On a cold morning, windbreaker jackets are ideal. Our Endura and Specialized windbreakers are like wetsuits and are bound to keep your body toasty during a commute or winter training. If the weather is on the turn like it so often is in this country, a proper waterproof jacket is vital, and luckily for you, we stock a variety of hi-vis, lightweight, heavyweight, and/or warm rain jackets for both men and women.

Top off the wind stopper vibe with a pair of winter gloves from Endura or a pair of Specialized Deflects. With a super stretchy neoprene outer layer and waterproof fabric construction, you won’t want to take these off in a hurry or even need to huddle round your mid ride brew.

Finish off your winter look with some leg warmers and you will be ready to go. Good winter kit makes all the difference, leaving you confident in the knowledge that you have the right clothes to battle the elements.

That new shoe feeling

We have you covered when it comes to a fresh pair of kicks too. We stock Specialized, Shimano, Giro and Fizik among others, because we know that a pair of lightweight performance shoes are just what every road cyclist needs.

Winning helmets

A new lid for Christmas is always welcome and we have a wide range for you to try on. Whether you go for a Specialized helmet with MIPS technology, a sleek aero Bontrager model or follow your favourite team by choosing Kask, we’re sure we have something that’ll suit you or the road cyclist in your life.

Accessories

Cycling accessories make for the perfect stocking fillers or gifts to prop up the tree. If you’re upgrading to a new bike this Christmas or looking after the one you love (bike or friend, we don’t judge!), why not get your hands on a super secure Kryptonite bike lock. These all too important items can seem pricey but when you factor in a brand new bike, a new lock is certainly worth it.

A Garmin Vector power meter is also sure to revolutionise the way you ride. Essentially just a pair of pedals, the Garmin Vectors track cadence, left/right balance, and tonnes of other dynamics that you can access via the Garmin app. Power meters truly transform your training and will change how you ride or race in 2020.

If you’re still struggling for ideas, why not put the decision in their hands with one of our Bicycle Chain gift vouchers? Or come down to one of our stores this Christmas and see how the Bicycle Chain team can help you.
