Mountain bikes can be split into two sections, hardtail and full-suspension. Hardtails only have suspension at the front, in the forks, whereas full-suspension also have a rear shock, for more technical riding. We stock two brands of hardtail, Trek and Genesis, and Trek full-suspension.
Trek’s hardtails have three frame ranges - Marlin, X-Caliber and Superfly. Trek hardtails use the Smart Wheel Size system, so the wheel size changes with frame size. For the smaller sizes (13.5” and 15.5”) that’s a 27.5” wheel, and for 17.5” and above, a 29” wheel. This gives you the fastest, most efficient bike for each size, without compromising the handling.
We also have two hardtail options with the new plus-sized tyres - the Trek Stache 29er and the 'steel is real' Genesis Tarn 27+. WIth maximum grip and minimal maintainance, these offer a real alternative to full-suspension for riding technical terrain.
Progressing to full-suspension, the Trek Fuel EX is a good all-round trail bike option. It comes in two tyre sizes, the bigger-wheeled 29" version with 130mm travel front and back, and for ultimate grip, the new 27.5" Plus-sized (2.8") wide tyre model, with 140mm front travel, 130mm rear. For something a bit more nimble there's the 100mm travel Trek Top Fuel, and if you’re looking to push your riding a bit further, then try the Remedy, with a full 160mm travel up front, 150mm rear in our Race Shop Limited version. It’s really important to try before you buy with full-suspension, so we run all these bikes as demo bikes.
And if you’re after something a little more bespoke, check out our made-to-order frames from Nicolai, to custom build into your perfect bike.
Don't forget, with every new bike (excluding sale bikes), we give you a free new bike gift voucher for 10% of the cost of the bike (maximum voucher value £200), and we also have a Loyalty Card so you can carry on saving, with up to 10% off clothing and accessories.
We think it’s really important to be able to try bikes before you buy. Any of our bikes in the shop are available for a short test ride around the block, but we also run demo bikes that you can take out for a full day’s ride, to really test them out.
This year we’re running the Trek Stache 7, Remedy 9, the Fuel EX 8 27.5 Plus, the Fuel EX 9 29 and Top Fuel 8, all in 18.5”. If you’d like to book one of these, please give us a call or email to check availability and for more details.
The bikes shown below are the models and sizes we have on the shop floor, built up and ready to ride away. If you need a different size, or are interested in another model from Trek and Genesis, these are available to order with 1-2 days delivery time. Give us a call or an email and we'll be happy to help.
