About Us

We're a British family who attracted by the conditions for cycling, and for living in general, now live in the Netherlands. Here we've been able to build on our passion for cycling.

The Netherlands has a higher rate of cycling than any other country, and the market for bicycles and bicycle components is huge. This has an almost Darwinian effect on the market for bicycle components. Those products which work well rapidly rise in popularity compared with those which do not.

We'd like to help practical everyday cycling spread to other countries. This is why the shop mainly is stocked with products which are popular in the Netherlands for everyday cycling, which are known to work well, and in particular those with which we have personal experience.

We ride bikes every day for work, for pleasure, for touring and racing and we need good components. The components that we sell come in two categories - they are either parts which we have on our own bicycles and through this we have them on our own long term test or they are parts with which we've experience elsewhere and know that they work well, or offer particularly good value.

Environmental policy

We take the environment seriously and use several techniques to reduce our impact:
