What sets Behind the Bikeshed apart?
Behind The Bikeshed is more than just a shop, it's the centre of a cycling community. As well as selling bikes and equipment, we also have a thriving workshop with Cytech qualified staff, we promote races in conjunction with British Cycling and we organise rides for our community.
We also have something quite unique in the bike trade, with two women amongst our five staff. To support this we have a dedicated area within the store for Women specific bikes and equipment, showcasing products from Specialized and Liv.
We also have two staff qualified to carry out Specialized Body Geometry bike fitting in our dedicated studio, including one of only a few women in the UK able to undertake this work. Why do we mention both male and female bike fitters? It's simple, both genders have specific requirements when it comes to riding, so it is important that we have staff that also understand a Woman's perspective of cycling and can provide a comfortable environment for Women riders to get the benefit of a professional bike fit.
