Why Johns Bikes?

Simple: When you shop at John’s Bikes, you’ll get good old fashioned customer service.

We live and breathe bicycles and we want a bit of that enthusiasm to rub off on everyone who comes into the shop.
And there is something that coming into the shop that no website can deliver. We believe you need to get hold of a bike, sit on its saddle, fondle the handlebars, click those gear levers, squeeeeeeeeze the brakes, stroke it, even sniff it.  Most importantly, ride it. Get to know it in all its lovely shiny gorgeousness. Fall in love …things you can’t do sitting in front of a computer screen.

It’s about choice too. Our very experienced staff will take their time to fit you on a bike that’s right for your riding style and budget, whether it’s for leisure or commuting, for an adult or child or girl or guy, high or low tech or a particular brand. In fact they love nothing more than to match the right saddle to the right bum and make sure that when you sit on it your toes contact the ground comfortably and that the handlebar height is just right. They will also help you select all the bits, pieces and kit that will give you the best bicycling comfort. They will also tell you about fantastic places to ride, let you know what the latest bicycling invention is etc. All so that you too can experience the joy of bicycling.

Thirty six years of experience has built us a peerless reputation for truthful advice and stocking the best bikes in each range, the right tyres and the strongest luggage racks for our customers. And if we haven’t got what you need, we will do our best to get it.

We will also talk to you in a language you can understand. Though we can rattle off the very latest in bicycle technology and invention, because our staff are among the most knowledgeable people on the subject in the South West.

And while we hope you have a great time exploring our website, there is no doubt about it, you can have loads more fun in our shop… And while you are there, enjoy our Walcot Street. It’s minutes from the heart of Bath and it’s one of the best shopping streets the city has to offer, full of creative, independent shops and eateries. Bring the whole family. Make a day of it!
