    Your chance to try the latest bikes from Orange and Kona and Santa Cruz!

    Join us at the Kielder Cycle Centre any time after lunch on Thursday 24th and test ride some great bikes from Orange and Kona. We will be organising guided rides from around 2pm through till dark, using parts of the Deadwater Trail.

    If you want to join us we need to know in advance, so please call on 01434 250457 to book your slot on the bike of your choice. There will be the chance to try out more than one bike during the day, but if we have your preferred time and bike booked in you get priority.

    If you have some favourite pedals, bring them along so we can fit them to your bike, and don't forget your helmet. We will need a driving licence or other proof of address, and a credit/debit card to hold while you are out riding.

    As well as a mixture of 2014 Orange and Kona bikes, our Santa Cruz Tallboy LT and 5010 carbon will also be available, as well as a Heckler, Bantam and Bronson!!!

    Don't miss out on this great opportunity, join us during the day or evening, and why not a drink after the rides?

     

  • China Light Boy

    Brilliant new lights just arrived !!

    We have formed a good working relationship with one of the better LED cycle light manufacturers in China, and now have in stock two of their latest lamps.

    SG-N2200Firstly, the SG-N2200. This twin bodied lamp uses two of the latest L2 U2 LED's and puts out an amazing 2200 lumens, with four power settings (10%, 40%, 70% and 100%). It features a separate handlebar switch for easy operation while cycling and the back of the lamp has 3 power indicators to show current battery power level (100%, 50%, 10%), so you will not suddenly be pitched into total darkness!. The lamp is the first to have a liquid coolant within the lamp body and is powered by a 6 cell 6600mAh 8.4V lithium ion battery enclosed in a waterproof shell. Included in the presentation box are handlebar mounts (two sizes), a helmet mount, battery pouch with straps, a UK charger and full instructions.  The lamp unit comes with a 12 month warranty and measures less than 6cm square.

    A lot of light for only £99.

    SG-ThumbThen we have the SG-Thumb, which as the name suggests is a tiny lamp weighing only 64grms!! Perfect for handlebar or helmet mounting this little baby still puts out 1000 lumens. This is undoubtedly the most powerful light for it's size I have ever seen! With four power modes (as above) and a 2 cell battery pack in a neoprene waterproof cover this lamp beats the traditional competition hands down. Included in a nice gift box are a battery pouch with straps, UK charger, two different size O rings for handlebar mounting, a helmet mount and full instructions. Again the lamp unit is covered by a 12 month warranty.

    Price for this little beauty is £55.

  • Haglöfs is here!!

    The Bike Place takes on this top end Swedish clothing brand.

    We have received our first delivery of this fabulous cycle apparel. Using the latest technical fabrics coupled with really well thought out design ideas results in some amazing pieces of clothing. Really lightweight and built to last brings meaning to the phrase "buy right, buy once".

    See our initial stock at our Kielder Cycle Centre - more arriving for the Spring.

  • New Brands Coming to Kielder

    Latest 5 Ten shoes now in stock!

    Five Ten Freerider VXi Elements have arrived!!

    I test rode a pair on a couple of wet rides recently and can safely say I was impressed. The new sole (VXi) works really well making it easier to re-adjust your position on flats. They are really comfy and much lighter, and with the "winterized" finish (Elements) did not take in as much water, and actually did dry out overnight (unlike my original Freeriders). I'm afraid they are relegated to Summer riding only!

    Also we have the Dirtbag shoe in stock.

    A nice little street/BMX shoe (still with Stealth sole), but also perfect for chilling after a ride. A do anything casual shoe, but very Five Ten and a cut above the average deck shoe. You need these!!

    urge-helmet-clearUrge Helmets now in stock!!!

    Having tried one of these from a riding buddy, I just knew we had to have some of these in the new shop. They are UNBELIEVABLY comfortable - forget what went before and get an Urge!!

    We have the Endur-O-Matic and All-Mountain in stock in various colours and sizes. Just arrived, the all new Supacross and the full face Archi-Enduro (with free goggles!!) Any other models can be ordered in. 

    New Demo Bikes available include Kona Process 134DL, Orange Gyro Pro, Orange 5 (27.5") and Santa Cruz 5010 Carbon!!

  • Kielder Trail News

    Listing the latest trail information for riders.

    The whole of the Up and Over Black section off the Deadwater trail is now open! A massive restructuring of the lower section down to the Forest Drive has now started. The machines are on site and the boys from NDH are constructing new features to make this section into our signature downhill Black run. The downside of this work in progress is that this section is closed till further notice..

    Kersey Cleugh through to 3 Dog Climb on Deadwater is closed. Tree felling is now finished and the remake of this trail has begun. A new climb is being built to join 3 Dog climb, then via Saved by the Bell the Kersey Cleugh section will run in the reverse direction giving this trail a whole new feel. There is lots of hand work to do, putting down a new surface and adding features and we need a lot more volunteers to speed this work along.  Anyone who fancies helping with this project should register their interest on the Forum at www.kieldertrailreavers.co.uk or call 01434 250457.

    Osprey Chick trail now open!! A nice extra section of flowing singletrack has been added to the Osprey Short (now Chick) trail. This is also signed from the Lakeside Way, so can be added as a nice finish to the Osprey (Long) trail.

    Lonesome Pine - the second section of hand built trail at Capon Hassock is now connected to CH 1 - to get involved in further building visit the trail build section on www.kieldertrailreavers.co.uk

    Woodstock - IS NOW SAVED!!! 180 gripper plates have been installed by the KTR team, one on each board. It now rides like a dream - wet or dry. Apart from a small contribution from FC, this improvement was funded by KTR from monies raised from our Marathon Series. Thanks to all who have contributed over the years.

  • New brands coming to Bellingham

  • Santa Cruz Nuze.....

    The all new Santa Cruz 5010 - how good does that look?

    Introducing the new Santa Cruz 5010!! Probably the ultimate trail bike with 130mm travel and on 27.5" wheels. Our funky Orange carbon one has now arrived and having been out on it a few times, I have to say I am very impressed.

    Interested in trying one? Please call Ian to book your ride.

    Our Tallboy LT demo is riding really well. Those bigger wheels make all types of going so much easier. If you want to see for yourself give us a call on 01434 250457 to book a demo.

    27.5" or 29"?  Well that is the question. You might need to try both before deciding!

    Don't forget, our hardly used Superlight demo (Black large) is still looking for a good home. Anyone?
