About us

Summertown Cycles has one of the best bike selections of any Oxfordshire bike shop. There are usually over 100 bikes on display at any one time, with hundreds more available as back-up stock (alternative sizes, colours, etc.).


We are agents for many of the UK’s best-selling bike brands (currently Trek, Ridgeback, Cannondale, Charge, Genesis, Saracen, Raleigh, Surly, Pashley and others). Every year we try to pick the stand-out bikes from these ranges to have as our core stock bikes. As well as these we also buy in reduced price “close-out” models from previous years and usually have three or four “student specials” in the £150 to £250 price range.IMG_2203

We stock everything from traditional town bikes to lightweight road bikes, mountain bikes, sporty hybrid bikes, and have Oxford’s best selection of decent quality childrens’ bikes.

  • Although we don’t sell boxed bikes online, we make every effort to ensure that our bikes are competitively priced- even against discount on-line sellers prices (and sometimes we can beat them for price !)
  • We hold many of these bikes in stock so that you can see them, pick them up and try them and don’t have to wait for them to be ordered in for you.
  • We have friendly, experienced staff who can give you expert help on bike selection and sizing
  • Our prices include free personalised bike set-up and accessory fitting
  • Most new bikes have teething problems in the first few weeks (even pre-stretched cables stretch some more and throw the gears out of adjustment !). Our prices include the first year’s servicing F.O.C.

We participate in most of the local employers’ CYCLE TO WORK SCHEMES (Cyclescheme, Bikes for the NHS, CyclePlus, etc). We also offer a PART EXCHANGE facility – bring your old bike in for a quote. TEST-RIDES are available (as long as the weather is not too bad and the roads are dry).


PLEASE NOTE: We do not sell boxed bikes online. We try to spend the time required with our customers to make sure that they get the best bike available for their needs and their budget. We will set up the bike so that it fits properly (including swapping parts where necessary) and will fit any accessories required. All new bikes have teething problems (even pre-stretched cables stretch some more and cause the gears to go out of adjustment and other parts bed in or work loose). Unlike online bike sellers, our prices include fitting, customising and after-sales servicing and even with that we can often match or better the prices of the online sellers.
