Welcome to 2019, the Year Of Adventure!

We are just getting back into the swing of things after the festive break an it’s looking like Jan is going to be all about drop bar adventure machines! Finally got a couple of Brother Cycles offer bikes built up – a lovely Kepler Disc 650b and a BigBro Hydro Dropbar. BUT ALSO….

The 2019 Rondo Ruut bikes are finally arriving – we have kept these a bit quieter this year as we couldn’t get solid delivery dates but they are now in the UK and filtering through to us over the next week or so.


The new steel ST is the first to be sent out to us but the AL is expected to follow in a few days!

2019 Rondo HVRT UK In Stock!

It has been a little time coming but the new Rondo HVRT bikes have started to arrive, and they look stunning. Pronounced ‘Hurt’ (just like the ‘V’ in our home town Edinbvrgh!)

The result of blending fast and focused road geometry with clearance for large tyres, you no longer have to choose between speed and comfort. We have been asked a few times what exactly they are for, and to be honest that’s up to you! Especially on the carbon versions you can mix with the fastest bunch on a Sunday run, smash crit races, or just pack the miles in. However they are equally at home on rough back roads or ‘true gravel’ – like they do in the States – or mudguarded up for the commuting grind.

First ones to arrive in the UK are the aluminium (£1599) and steel (£1999) with the carbons to follow shortly. Click through for full details. – Please note we are currently updating our site and have a couple of legacy HTTP images to get rid of – you may get a security warning. If this happens to you please get in touch if you want to know more about the bikes.

2018 Rocky Mountain UK Sale – Bikes Added!

We managed to sneak a few more seconds to update our sale bikes, now the Element has been added and the Powerplay C50 removed (sold out!)

The Element is a great bike, in fact it was our most popular Rocky last year! But who wants an XC bike? Well, it’s not really just an XC bike. It can be, sure. We have built them sub 24lbs, but where this really excels is light weight long rides with fun downhills. Welcome to #downcountry! Silly hashtags aside this is a style of riding really popular in Scotland and throughout the UK, lightweight trail bikes can be a lot of fun. Also makes a great bikepacking machine.

This one takes two bottles, one 500ml and one 750ml, a dropper post (standard on the C70) and is a whole lot of fun to ride. We have a medium demo bike available, get in touch if you want to test it.

2018 Rocky Mountain Element C70 RRP £5199 Sale £4250 

2018 Rocky Mountain Element C50 RRP £3699 Sale £2999

Second focus is the 2018 Altitude C50 – Carbon front end Alu rear end.

Limited time offer on this – we need to clear some space for 2019 colours and are feeling a little silly so for a limited time only all remaining C50 stock can be yours for only £2999!

2018 Rocky Mountain Altitude C50 RRP £3999 Offer Price £2999

Finance price £3199.


Last up, SLAYERS! No changes since last week, prices remain the same and with only three bikes left they are running out fast. We also just like posting pictures of SLAYERS. These bikes rock hard. If they don’t all go soon. I might buy one. Or a 2019. Honestly, SLAYERS! Are you still reading? Go and look at SLAYERS.

Rondo Ruut ST Sale / Special Offer

The days are getting longer, the nights brighter, and while in Scotland we have yet to see any real rise in temperature thoughts are still turning to long gravel adventures on drop bar bikes. What better way to celebrate than with a limited time sale on Rondo Ruut steel bikes – all sizes of steel ST bikes are now the same price as the aluminium AL bikes – £1699 so if you have been watching these for a while it’s time to make your move!

Rondo Ruut ST Bikes – Was £1999 Now £1699


2018 Rondo Ruut UK Stock Update – We have bikes!

After the Rondo bikes landed here back in November feedback has been amazing, with fine examples of all four versions flying out the door!  Great to see everyone enjoying these new bikes, and we love ours too, spending a lot of time on the new CF2 and our old faithful ‘NS RAG+’ bikes (the Rondo AL, minus the nice paint and improved fork).

Reviews are also coming in a bit faster as well, with the new Ruuts getting great press left right and centre. And we are one of the only places to still have the CF2 in stock.

We have a medium CF2 available for off road demos, and currently one AL, one ST, and one CF2 on display in store.

Now the dust has settled and our pre-orders fulfilled what are we left with? Well, very low stock to be honest! As expected, the CF2 has been very popular with all sizes in the UK sold out until the next delivery except 59cm, HOWEVER – we stored what we could and have one 53cm and one 56cm left in stock, ready to ship now from our basement of glory. See here – Rondo CF2 – for up to date stock. Other models are a little better, we still have a mix of STs and ALs in stock and ready to ship, with more available to order from Rondo UK including the CF1, although numbers are getting low so make contact if you are keen and want one before summer!

We don’t currently have a date for the next delivery of Ruuts, or the new Hvrt all-road bike, happy to place pre-orders to secure bikes if you are OK to wait! And after leaving myself adventure-bike-less for three months while waiting for my CF2, I can tell you it was worth it. Honestly one of the most comfortable carbon adventure bikes around.
