This post does exactly what it says on the tin:
For the bike trade, 2013 is well and truly upon us and that means we need to free up some showroom space from the last remaining 2012 bikes.
We have the following bikes available in the following sizes only:
Mondraker Dune R Large – was £2599 – Now £2199
Mondraker Foxy R Medium – was £2599 – Now £2199
Mondraker Factor Medium – was £2199 – Now £1849
Mondraker Tracker Large – was £1299 – Now £1099
Specialized Camber Comp FSR Large – was £1500 – Now £1249
Specialized Carve Comp 19″ – was £1000 – £799
And we also have a couple of Ex-Demo Models available too. These have been ridden but are in very good condition and come with full warranty:
Specialized Roubaix SL3 Ultegra 58cm, Ferrari Red – £3000 rrp. Now £1999
Mondraker Foxy RR Large custom build with E.13 wheels and chain device, Fox 32 RLC QR15 Kashima fork, Formula R1 Racing brakes, Rockshox Reverb and Raceface finishing kit, 2×10 XT. £5200 rrp. Now £2600 full bike or £900 frame only.
After a brief delay we’ve had some shiny new Merckx in to complete the lineup.
The award winning AMX-1 alloy bike at a more accessible £999 price point is in, as is the stunning EMX-3 Centaur at £2199 with Fulcrum racing wheels and campag Centaur carbon groupset.
Below is the new EMX-1 peleton. Now, this frameset doesn’t have the internal cable routing of the EMX-3 but it has the same CL+ full carbon layup, carbon fork, Shimano 105 shifting, Shimano wheels and FSA/Prologo finishing kit, and it’s £1599 (I know, we cant quite believe it either)
We now have an EMX Test Bike available that you can book to ride too!
A lot has happened in such a small space of time, so much so that we haven’t really had time to get stuff updated so there are a lot of updates coming at once!
First off, We’ve had our first delivery of Pashley. Pashley are synonymous with British quality, having been handbuilt in Stratford-upon-Avon since 1926. www.pashley.co.uk
As some of you might be aware we’ve really neglected the blog recently and we’ve found Facebook ( www.facebook.com/KineticCyclesWelwyn ) and Twitter ( @kineticbicycles ) an easier medium to quickly keep people up-to-date as oppsoed to long, rambling blog posts.
But enough of that….
So, it’s a week shy of 6 months since we opened the doors and a lot has changed. The stress and chaos of preparing a shop to open have been replace with the stress and chaos of a business that has grown far quicker than any of us anticipated. We have had a fully booked workshop since the 2nd month and we’ve doubled our staff. We’ve gone from an initial portfolio of 4 brands to a burgeoning portfolio that now includes Specialized, Ridgeback, Genesis, Pashley, Moda, Mondraker, Eddy Merckx, Yeti, Singular and Time, alongside clothing from Endura, Fox Racing and Pearl Izumi and quality accessories from the likes of GoPro, Brooks, Camelbak, Evoc to name but a very, very few. And that’s not to forget the BMX and scooter boys too!
So what’s next? Well, after a summer that lasted for about a fortnight we’ve got our first christmas to look forward to. Alongside the traditional christmas trade, we’re also going to be promoting a range of awesome stocking fillers, a christmas idea gift list and Emma is going to be putting together a cycling twist on the traditional Christmas Hamper.
On a non-festive note, we’ve got a swanky new website being built by our friends at www.lemongrassmedia.co.uk which will be going live in early October. This will have a groovy news feed as well as info on us, our brands and an online booking system for the workshop.
As much of a cliche as it is, by liking us on facebook it provides an easier access point for information on what we’ve got going on, events and rides we will be holding and a viewpoint into the murky world of running a bike shop. – www.facebook.com/KineticCyclesWelwyn or Twitter @KineticBicycles
ZipVit Sports Nutrition is used by some of the world’s top athletes, including Cervelo Test Team and Team BMC, to celebrate their new range of products, we’ve got a great in-store offer, spend £10 on any ZipVit Nutrition products and receive 3 free Blackcurrant Energy Gels, spend £20 and receive 6, it really is that easy!
The heavy downpours of the last 48 hours can tell us two things:
Firstly Veolia Water’s rain dance is clearly working and more importantly; Summer is almost here!
What better way to cheer one’s self up than with some lovely spring/summer clothing?
We’ve just taken delivery of even more clothing from those lovely people at Fox. It’s not just the usual raft of technical riding clothing, oh no! We’ve been asked by a number of people if we’re going to be offering any casual clothing, so we have obliged.
In addition to Riding Jerseys, Gloves and Shorts, this week we’ve had a raft of tees, hoodies, shorts and accessories arrive for both men and ladies. A small selection of which you can see below.
Well, despite the weather we’ve been run off our feet! However, we’ve made time in our busy schedule to get the shop in order. We’re still adding brands and as such it’ll constantly be evolving over time.
You can check out how things are looking at the moment on our facebook page http://on.fb.me/Jo277p
A Work in Progress on our Mondraker Foxy RR Demo Bike. Built with E.Thirteen XCX wheels – Custom Extruded Scandium Rims, 6 Pawl Engagement (instant Pickup), Through Axle Compatible, 1400g Trail Wheelset! also featuring the new RaceFace Turbine and SixC Components. This bike will be available to demo by appointment, as will the wheelset alone.
For anyone who has been a regular reader of the blog, you may well have noticed that we’ve been a bit slack on putting up posts over the last few days. Well, it’s not slackness, it’s just the fact that we’ve been run off our feet all day every day. However we’ve found some time in our days to take on some new brands. We’re pleased to announce that we’ve added Mondraker bikes to our portfolio of Mountain Bikes; Mondraker are one of the continent’s biggest brands and are developing a real following in the UK with their range of performance suspension bikes including the World Cup winning Summum and gravity-enduro winning Dune. The full range is available to view online at www.mondraker.com A range of bikes should be in stock with us this week and we are also planning on building a very special Foxy (140mm travel) demo bike.
Alongside Mondraker we’d also like to point our that we are also stockists on RaceFace – Canadian component specialists, E.Thirteen – Innovative chainguides, wheels, cranks and more! and Evoc – Sophisticated Luggage.
All will be instore soon so keep checking back for updates.
We’re really excited about this, Kinetic Cycles has just taken delivery of our first shipment of bikes from British brand Moda . Moda bikes have been receiving rave reviews and the ride quality, specification and value for money truly has to be seen to be believed.
More to follow really soon…..
