Started in 1980 by renowned international Scottish cyclist Billy Bilsland, we have been selling quality bikes from our Glasgow store since 1980. Billy now keeps a low profile and the shop is run by his son Neil along with Ross, Gordon and our mechanics Ally and Thomas. We are all regular cyclists-commuting every day and hit the roads and trails at the weekends. We are home to a podium worn Polka Dot jersey won by Robert Millar in the 1984 Tour de France.
A true piece of Scottish sporting history. Robert was taken under Billy's wing when he was a junior and was there as he developed into the best climber of his day and the greatest Britain has ever produced. We support the Glasgow Riderz, the cycling club for kids in Glasgow, by servicing all their bikes for free.
We also sponsor the Glasgow Green Cycling Club, a new club with a friendly ethos that was grown to over 70 members in the six months since it started.

Company description
We try to offer the best service in Glasgow and stock the best road bikes in the city. Cannondale, Focus, Custom built Cervelo's and access to many other top brands. We love top end road bikes and offer free servicing for life on many of these bikes- thats right, no labour ever Whether it is a cable fitted, gear adjusted, wheel trued or bike stripped and rebuilt you never pay a penny in labour. You never have to book ahead and as we also stock the vast majority of replacment parts for all the brands we sell the turn around is usually very quick. Quite often we will do it on the spot, especially when you cycle down and have a cup of tea in your lycra while you wait. We offer one years free servicing with every new commuting bike-it's our way of telling you that our bikes are all of a quality that can stand up to regular use.
For those of you who cycle through the city every day we can offer a courtesy bike while yours is in being fixed. We don't require booking in ahead for repairs although it can be best to phone ahead as we know that you can't predict the tweaks, mishaps and general maintenance that a bike can need. We always try for a same day service of repairs and when it's not possible you can take home a courtesy bike. For kid's bikes we only sell real bikes, not toys. From ages 2 up our bikes are light, have good brakes and will last.
We will trade in kid's bikes bought from ourselves when they are grown out of. Once again we offer free servicing for as long as you own the bike. Pop them down whenever you need to. You can follow what riding we are doing on Facebook We plan to be adding pictures and videos to it on a regular basis.
