We love second hand bicycles at Going Going Bike . Used bikes offer something a bit different to a bike straight out of the factory.  They can also provide great value and are sustainable. Our guest blogger, Andrew from Going Going Bike put together a used bicycle guide for you to enter the world of […]

This month’s customer review was written by Michael Whitelegge on the Specialized Hardrock Sport Disc 2011, and as usual, he is entitled to the £250 voucher. Bought this after completing an introductory course on mountain biking riding a Hardrock hire bike. The frame geometry really suits me. I had to choose between the Sport Disc […]

He did so by not producing anything particularly special, but […]

At 55 miles the London to Brighton’s hardly a sportive, but you still need to be prepared. Simon Handby talks us through what to expect. I’ve a feeling, as the bike crashes down off the log, the suspension compresses and I hear the chain smacking off the chainstay, that chucking myself around this particular bit of singletrack […]
