We are really pleased to announce a new partnership with FACTOR bikes. We have agreed to retail all their outlet stock, so they can focus on direct sales of the 2020 models. We have access to a stock of over 100 framesets in all different colours and sizes, predominantly from 2019 and also some 2018 and 2017 models.
Factor have hit the cycling world with a storm in recent years, with their supremely engineered Factor One and O2 Models. FACTOR bikes have now grown into one of the most esteemed manufacturers of carbon framesets and are lauded universally as a premier brand.
They began in 2007 as part of bf1systems, an engineering firm involved with brands like Ferrari, Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Maserati and many F1, Moto GP, and WRC teams. They’ve also helped build bikes for other brands that have gone on to win the world’s biggest races, including the Tour de France. In recent years, as a stand alone brand, they have been using their expertise in high-end carbon manufacturing to build some of the highest quality frames available. With two years of success as bike provider to world tour team AG2R they are globally recognised for their cutting edge designs and manufacturing.
We now have available over 100 frames and some bikes from Factors key lines including, the ONE, ONE V2, 02 and 02 Disc. These models are available in a variety of colours and sizes, find out more HERE.
Here’s how Factor describe the ONE and O2
The Factor ONE goes beyond aerodynamics to be the fastest aero road bike ever, not on paper or in the wind tunnel, but on the road. With the Twin Vane Evo downtube at its core, the ONE has been designed for aerodynamic efficiency and maximum frame stiffness. Leading the peloton against the headwind, an all-out criterium or at a fast paceline through the rolling countryside, the ONE is sure to deliver an exhilarating, fast ride.
Designed and built with no compromises, the FACTOR O2 delivers a high-performance ride capable of satisfying the demands of the fastest riders in the ProTour peloton. This is the weapon of choice of Romain Bardet and the AG2R team. To dance up the mountains, and storm down the descents.

We just got this lovingly restored and resprayed 1980's Woodrup road bike in store and couldn't help but write up a little blog on the bike itself and the brand.
When it comes to buying your new bike there are so many different options when it comes to spec choice that it can be quite the minefield. Bicycle gearing is perhaps the biggest and most complicated one of those mines with different brands, all with different groupsets, all at different speeds,mechanical or electronic, etc - if you don't already know the key differences between groupsets then it's easy to get lost. In this blog we strip back those complexities and offer a simple and basic guide to modern bicycle gearing.
