A FEW OF THE AWESOME BIKE BRANDS WE STOCK
Quality products that are backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
GT was first started in 1972 by Gary Turner, one of his first designs was the BMX race bikes that he welded himself. From the offset the frame was a great success and went on to great success with great wins to prove the frame. The first GT mountain bike was released in 1987 this was the first time we saw the well-known triple triangle design which is still used today, following the newly designed Independent Drivetrain frames the Atherton’s have capitalised on this to pull out some outstanding results in the 2013 season. For us at Adventure Cycles GT has always been the favoured mountain bike to own due to the unique triple triangle design.
Simple frame and design yet very versatile; starting life in the hills of North Somerset by a group of passionate engineers and designers the Charge brand is very British and produces some very innovative designs for both the commuter and enthusiasts. With the benefit of a simple design the brand make purchasing a bike easy and enjoyable. From the beginning in 2006 Charge bikes have been a firm favourite of ours due to the strong steel frames and building a single speed specific mountain bike which is ideal for Guernsey winter riding.
Along with the revamp of the store we have also re-enlisted the Scott dealership. We needed a strong road and mountain bike brand and for this Scott ticks all the right boxes. Scott started back in 1958 producing ski equipment then eventually releasing the first mountain bike in 1986, shortly after they produced the first aero bar for road bikes which allowed American Greg Lemond to win the Tour de France in 1989. Then in 1998 Scott again pushed the boundaries of frame design to release a full carbon soft tail mountain bike, today both of us still have this frame which we still love to ride. We are very happy to have the Scott range as the road and mountain bike options available are very competitive not only in alloy but also carbon.

Having celebrated their 25th anniversary they still push the boundaries to found the perfect balance of price with design. The child’s range of bikes are very competitive and cater for all abilities, with the recent release of the balance bike range the bike is designed to teach balance from the very start so as to bypass the stabiliser option.
