The shop is located in the heart of some of the best singletrack in the South of England. We can advise you on some potential routes that include some fantastic trails and if for any reason you require assistance, we can always come and fetch you in the shop Van! Please note, bikes are not allowed to be kept overnight due to insurance.
No, we just do Santa cruz! We can order things on a next day delivery or get them sent direct to your house.
VPP (Virtual Pivot Point) suspension designs balance different forces to eliminate unwanted compression without limiting bump absorption. The downward force on your pedals pushes most full suspension bikes down, resulting in unwanted suspension compression. VPP bikes use a patented link configuration and axle path to apply some of the pulling force from the chain to counteract that motion caused by pedaling. Because the forces are balanced, VPP bikes remain able to absorb bumps when pedaling, unlike other designs that effectively lock out the rear suspension by applying too much chain pulling force. What you end up with is plush travel with no pedal-induced compression or lockout and no need for manual lockouts or other compromises.(Answer courtesy of Santa Cruz Uk).

If you would like to order a Santa Cruz complete bike or frame, we are able to accept payments via card, cash, bank transfer or cheque. We require that at least a 20% NON REFUNDABLE deposit (or £500) is placed at the time of ordering on any bike/frame that we do not have in stock, and the remaining balance is paid on the collection of the bike/frame.
