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.'
Consistent innovators since they were founded in 1974, it's little wonder Specialized have been the Bike Co-op’s best selling brand for more than three decades. What makes Specialized truly exceptional is their ability to continually develop their race-proven technologies, whilst always striving to make their innovations available at more accessible prices. This is true whether it's a Specialized road bike, a Specialized mountain bike or a Specialized hybrid bike. A Specialized Allez entry level road bike is difficult to distinguish from a 2 grand Specialized Tarmac from 10 paces. Same goes for the Specialized Stumpjumper hardtail-derived Hardrock. This philosophy is carried through Specialized's extensive range of cycling accessories and equipment. That's why if you are looking for a best buy at any price point, more often than not, you'll find yourself opting for the Specialized helmet, the Specialized tyre, the Specialized pump, the Specialized shoe....
