Bicycles are what the Bike Co-op is all about. Quite simply we look on bicycles as an all-round good thing. That's why we don't restrict our range to any specific niche or brand. That's why our bicycle range includes road bikes, cross bikes, touring bikes, mountain bikes, women's bikes, unisex bikes, kids' bikes, balance bikes, pro-quality bikes and beginners' bikes. We also cover the whole sector that comes under the rainbow banner, 'hybrid bikes' including flat bar commuter/hybrid bikes, high-bar comfort bikes, Pashley bikes (a group unto themselves), folding bikes and electric bikes.
Why? Because as Pulitzer Prize-winning Californian novelist William Saroyan famously wrote, 'The bicycle is the noblest invention of mankind. I love the bicycle. I always have. I can think of no sincere, decent human being, male or female, young or old, saint or sinner, who can resist the bicycle.'
Giant bikes are the only bicycle company that builds every frame from scratch. This makes Giant bikes the Michelin 5 star chefs of the cycle industry. From raw aluminium ore to the final hard lacquered finish, Giant control every aspect of the production of every one of their trademark Aluxx alloy frames. Same with their incredible carbon creations. From weaving the fine Toray filament to the final finished frame, every Giant composite frame is the result of a painstaking 13-day process. Matching this level of quality control with the unique economies of scale that accrue from building 6 million bicycles a year ensures the premium quality that Giant bikes consistently achieve at competitive down-to-earth prices.
