Buying from VO2 Cycling

The VO2 Experience

We’re not a regular bike shop;  we make our own custom range of bikes  to order for each individual customer that we work with.  We’re proud of our bikes, and put our name on each one that rolls out the door of our workshop.  But we’re just as proud of how easy it is to buy a custom built bike from us. 

We work in partnership with you, getting to know you and your cycling and using our expert knowledge to help you make the right choices for your new bike.  Before you know it, you’ll be riding away on your brand new VO2 bike; a bike as unique as you are!

We believe in building your bike around you, rather than making you fit your bike.  If you’ve ever suffered from pain on your bike or wanted to be more comfortable on a long ride, you’ll feel the difference the moment you sit in the saddle of your VO2 bike. 

Building the bike up around your unique physiology means we can eliminate unnecessary strain on your body, allowing you to ride further than you ever dreamt possible.  Being comfortable on your bike not only feels great, but with better control and handling you’ll see your performance improve too. 

Buying a personalised bike doesn’t need to be daunting and after visiting us you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner!

Your VO2 journey


Get to know VO2 Cycling

Our website shows our range of bikes, and the options available to customise your bike.  Start dreaming of the places your new VO2 bike could take you! You can also pop into the workshop for a chat and take a look at our demo bikes. Why not take one for a test ride?


Like what you see?

Arrange a consultation with us.
This is a 1:1 discussion to help us learn a bit more about you.  We want to know about your cycling experience so far, what you’re looking to achieve, and anything else that might help us create the best bike for you.  We’ll also take a few of your measurements which will guide our suggestions.


Make it your own

Core range specification
If you’ve fallen in love with a bike from our core line-up we’ll recommend the right frame size, gear ratios, stem length, bar width and crank length to suit your style of riding.

To take the personal touch one step further, you can add an optional custom paint to your frame.

Custom bike
For the ultimate custom build you can choose each of the components that make up your new bike. We’ll help you select your groupset, wheels, bars, stem and saddle that you prefer.

To finish off, you can add an optional paint finish to really make it your own.


Ready to roll?

At the end of the consultation, once you’re happy with the spec of your bike, we’ll provide you with a formal quote which is valid for 30 days.  When you’re ready to commit, we’ll ask for a 50% deposit to order your new bike.  Alternatively, we can arrange 0% finance through V12 to help you spread the cost over 12 months.  

Once your order is submitted, if you’ve added a custom paint finish we’ll arrange a proof of your design for you to approve.

As each frame is made to order there is a lead time of around 4-8 weeks for delivery of your new bike. The timescale for each order may vary, especially at busy times of the year but we’ll confirm the timescale with you when you place your order and keep you posted on its progress.

 We know you’ll want to get out and ride your bike as soon as possible, but when you see your new bike for the first time, you’ll know it was worth waiting for. 


New bike day!

When your bike is ready, we’ll arrange for you to come to the workshop.  You’ll get to see your new bike in the flesh, before we take you through a complimentary bike fit where we’ll make any final adjustments so your bike fits you perfectly. The final balance of your bike is due before it leaves the workshop.  

If you can’t pick up your bike in person we’ll use the details from your consultation to set your bike up, and we’ll arrange safe and secure shipping using a trackable courier. 


Get out and ride

We hope you’ll enjoy riding your bike, and you become the envy of your cycling buddies!  We love to see our bikes and their riders in action so make sure you send us your photos, tag us on social media and let us know how you’re getting on.  Then, after 6 weeks, pop back to the workshop and we’ll give your bike its first service absolutely free. 

It really is that simple to buy a custom bike from VO2 Cycling.  So what are you waiting for?

Don't just take our word for it

It's really good to have a personal experience in V02. The head mechanic Chris is friendly, really knows his stuff and is always happy to recommend what work or parts I need based on my style of riding and budget.
