All our bikes are washed and maintained between each hire and have been thoroughly checked over prior to sale. This preventative maintenance ensures that the bikes are in excellent condition mechanically. They have been used though so there will be some scratches here and there, particularly on luggage racks. Our bikes are never used in winter so are never subject to the damage that salt can cause. To arrange a viewing please get in touch.
We are happy to arrange shipping to any UK address for an extra £50. Currently we can't send eBikes though.
Call 01463 419160 or email us to find out more or arrange a test ride.
The Trek Powerfly 4 is a really versatile eBike or eMTB. At its core is a hardtail mountain eBike but it is sold with a touring set-up including mudguards, luggage rack, touring tyres and kickstand. We also include a set of off-road tyres so you can have the best of both worlds. They are not all blue, depending on size we have eBikes in red and black too. It is a 1x10 Shimano Deore drivetrain and an SR Suntour suspension fork with lockout.
We have added luggage rack, mudguards, kickstand and two bottle cages and these are included with the sale. It's a hardtail electric mountain bike underneath and if you take the mudguards off and fit the included mountain bike tyres it becomes an outright eMTB.
The power comes from a Bosch Performance CX (250 W, 85 Nm) motor that assists up to 15 mph (25 km/h) paired with a Bosch Purion controller and a 500Wh integrated but removable battery.
The Bosch Purion controller on these eBikes is really simple to use. There's a really great short video on how it works here: How To Use Bosch Purion
Range depends on a multitude of factors but we have had customers reporting up to 50 miles / 80km even with panniers. The charging cable can be attached directly to the bike or the battery can be unlocked and removed from the bike easily if you don't have a socket nearby.
Please email us if you'd like to try one for size. We've got small, medium and XL available. Price is £2200.
Finding the right terminology for bikes these days can be a struggle. These bikes could reasonably be describe as road, sportive, touring or gravel bikes. They are the ideal road bike for most leisure cyclists and popular with riders in the Etape Loch Ness.
They can be fitted with a luggage rack (not included) to carry panniers for longer tours like the North Coast 500 and can even take gravel tyres (35mm rear, 40mm front) for some gravel riding. In fact it was one of our Trek Domane AL4s that Markus Stitz used to make his film "Where Roads End", an exploration of gravel alternatives around the North Coast 500.
We have a few sizes of 2022 Trek Domane AL4. They are all aluminium frames with carbon forks and Shimano Tiagra groupset. The Shimano Tiagra drivetrain is 2 by 10 speed, 11-32T cassette teamed with a compact, 50/34 chainset provides a wide range of gears. They've got Shimano Tiagra hydraulic disc brakes for reliability and assured stopping in all weather. These bikes have been a great success and are often bought by customers who have previously hired one. There is always a lot of interest in our ex-hire road bikes so please email us if you'd like to arrange a viewing. Price is £900.
The Trek FX 3 Disc has a lightweight aluminium frame, wide ratio gears - (46/30T chainrings / 11-36T cassette), hydraulic disc brakes, mudguards and a luggage rack suitable for panniers. Without the rack and mudguards the FX 3 Disc could be termed a "fitness" bike, meaning a fast tarmac bike with straight handlebars.
We have added luggage rack, mudguards and two bottle cages and these are included with the sale. It's a really versatile platform though and if you took the mudguards off and fitted nobbly cyclocross tyres it becomes a very capable "gravel" or "adventure" bike...
...or add panniers and you've got a touring bike ready for the North Coast 500 or even Lands End to John O'Groats!
These bikes are very practical, versatile and reliable. We have had similar bikes in the fleet every year since 2007 and I still see bikes we sold ages ago in use around the town. Please email us if you'd like to try one for size. We've got one or two bikes in sizes to suit most riders up to about 185cm / 6'1". Price is £440.
Our 2023 mountain bikes have nearly sold out already - sorry! Do get in touch now though if you might be interested in an XS Trek Marlin 6 suitable for riders roughly 4'9"-5'1" (145-155cm). This bike is in near showroom condition. We have fitted bottle cages and front mudflap all included with sale. Please email us if you'd like to come and see. Price is £450.
