EPIC CYCLES

OUR BIKES

Our Bike Brands

At Epic Cycles we take a different approach to most other bike stores – rather than list a huge number of brands, but actually have little knowledge or in-depth expertise in any of them, our approach is to work closely with a smaller number of carefully selected manufacturing partners and get to know their products inside out – to the point that a number of them come to us directly for input and knowledge sharing.

As a result we are proud to have become the UK's centre of excellence for every one of our bike brands.

We can of course supply a wide range of “off-the-peg” bikes, catering for all types of rider and all budgets, but if you see something you like and want to change or upgrade anything at all we are only too happy to customise bikes to meet your requirements.  In fact, very few bikes leave us in a standard specification!  Alternatively, we can start with a bare frameset and build you a bespoke bike from the ground up.

Every Basso frame is still hand-made to the most exacting standards in Italy from raw materials upwards. It’s not just an Italian name slapped onto a frame that has been outsourced to a third party manufacturer in a far off land – a Basso is 100% authentically Italian, but without an arm-and-a-leg price tag. It’s one of the few products available that represents something more, something real. An Italian frame, made in Italy, made by Basso.

Salsa view the bike as “a path to new places, new people, and amazing experiences”. And who are we to argue! Salsa Cycles has flourished by developing pioneering bikes considered too niche by the big players – and they have stayed at the forefront when those niches have caught on and moved into mainstream.
