Specialized Tyre Amnesty
Take advantage of the Specialized Tyre Amnesty to get some new rubber for your road pride and joy!
Customers will be able to purchase a pair of S-Works Turbo Tyres at a very attractive price of £50 per pair or £25 singly, in return for their old tyres (single or pair, from any brand) until we sell out.
Bring in your old tyres and save £30 on a pair of brand new Specialized S-Works tyres in either 24 or 26mm widths just in time for the new race season.
Tyres on offer are the S-Works Turbo or S-Works Tour of Britain which normally retail at £80 per pair. Tyres are paramount to a great performance and even if your riding is confined to the Saturday morning chain gang you will notice the difference as you speed around Shrewsbury Town Centre.

Please see below for some very special prices from Shrewsbury's premier bike shop.
These bikes are new, old stock. Some we consider old friends as we've coveted their sleek lines and shiny paint as we've dusted them each week. But the time has come to say goodbye, we don't want a messy divorce just a smooth transition to someone who'll take as much care as we did but rather than just look, actually go ride.
Grab a bargain and discover the Shropshire Lanes before they get too messy or get messy with a Cyclo Cross model.
Straight sales only. Please ask about Finance or Cyclecheme - Bike2Work prices.

Zdenek Stybar Is 2014 Uci World Champ
From deciding to race Cyclocross Worlds a little more than a week ago, to kissing his Specialized Crux at the finish line as the new 2014 UCI Cyclocross World Champion. Just another day at the races for Zdenek Stybar.
What started out as a decision to race for fun quickly turned into one of the more exciting cyclocross battles in recent memory. Starting from the fourth row behind the juggernauts of the sport, Zdenek fought tooth and nail to quickly make his way through the mid-pack traffic. The race came down to an exhilarating last-lap duel between Zdenek, and defending World Champion Sven Nys of Trek. The two men traded attacks, and spills, as they battled for supremacy in the grueling mud, whilst in the Women's race, Marianne Vos simply rode her Giant Advanced 'cross bike away from the competition.
Watch the race on the UCI You Tube Channel.
Ride a Specialized or Giant cycle from our store, Frankwell, Shrewsbury, Shropshire.

Ellie Russell National Championship Bronze
It was great to see one of the Mid Shropshire Wheelers Junior Team get onto the podium at the 2014 British Cycling National Cyclo Cross Championships at Derby.
Shrewsburys Ellie Russell has made giant leaps this season and led out at the start only to come unstuck on a technical section but on her Specialized bike she showed the grit of a champion to chase back through the field before taking bronze on the final lap.
Watch this girl go in 2014 as well as the rest of our Junior Team sponsored riders.

Podium In Australia For Luke Grivell-mellor
A blatant plug for our son Luke who took off from Shrewsbury and travelled to Australia in early November to train and race in the Victoria university town of Bendigo.
Luke who rides professionally for the Rapha - Condor - JLT cycling team joined an advance party of team mates to begin their 2014 season early with some solid training and then racing the Mitchelton Bay Criterium series over the New Year.
Team mate Ed Laverack took overall honours with Luke in third place overall and Felix English taking the King of the Sprints Crown. Next stop for Luke is the New Zealand Cycle Classic stage race which starts on the 29th January.
Not bad for a Shropshire lad who started racing at the Mid Shropshire Wheelers kids club on his Giant bike at the Shrewsbury Sports Village. Luke has taken part in all aspects of cycling but is now Specialized as a road racer.
