Road Cycle Exchange is no ordinary bike shop. We specialise in pre–owned high performances bicycles and parts - Road, CycloCross and Triathlon. We buy the highest quality used and new bikes and parts from individual cyclists, professional race teams, shops, and suppliers. This allows us to offer amazing deals on top end bikes.
All bikes we buy go through a thorough service and safety check process carried out by our accredited onsite mechanics. Any damaged or faulty parts are replaced so that you can be sure you’re buying a bike that works properly. To back that up we give a warranty on everything we sell. If something goes wrong we’ll fix it or replace it. There are none of the worries you'd normally have buying used or second hand.
Many of our customers choose to part-exchange their current bike. It’s easy and hassle free - one transaction and you’re sorted with none of the uncertainty or bother of a private sale. Our customers love it.
If you don’t have a bike to trade in we’re just like any other bike shop (but better value). We always have a large selection of the world's best road bikes for sale at discount prices.
You can order online, by phone, or come to our shop in London - we have great coffee and cake and are close to Richmond Park for test rides. To take the worry out of buying remotely we've made our returns policy fair and flexible – 14 day no quibble returns, so long as it’s in the same condition. We also buy bikes for cash.
International customers are welcome - we ship to pretty much anywhere in the world and have great TrustPilot feedback from buyers in Europe, America and beyond.
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.
Trek are a huge company, both on the high street and in the peloton. Given the size of the company they naturally produce a huge and diverse collection of bicycles across almost all disciplines. In this blog we're going to take a quick look at the three main offerings they have for road cycling; the Madone, Domane, and Emonda.
