At Inspiral Cycles we've got a great range of hand-selected products in shop, and the knowledge to help you find exactly the right thing. Our small team are passionate about all things cycling, from commuting and leisure riding to racing both on and off road. We know what products provide the best riding experience, and we love sharing this knowledge with our customers.
We've got a sensible and no-nonsense approach to fixing and servicing bikes, with a good turnaround time.  Bring your bike in, we can have a chat about what it needs and what it is likely to cost, and if you're happy we can do the work for you.
We pride ourselves in looking after all our customers, but don't just take our word for it - check out our 5* reviews on Google and Facebook!
We look forward to seeing you in store, or speaking to you on the phone or via email!

    Shop owner Gary will be racing his mountain bike at the Tweedlove Scottish Open Enduro Series. This race series always features some of the most vicious and demanding terrain found anywhere in the UK - which is just what he likes!

    Gary has also been known to race road bike time trials, big mileage sportives, DH races, and even doesn't do too badly at the occasional cyclocross race either.

    When not riding a bike, Gary is easily found in shop stoking the fire, making coffee, eating flapjack, or sharing his enthusiasm for cycling with anyone and everyone.


    Our main-man-with-the-spanners is a massively experienced and very capable all-round cyclist. His attention to detail and desire to get things "just right" make him an excellent mechanic. Decades of experience on road, mountain and cyclocross means Rob knows his stuff, and he's fast too. He placed 6th in category for the very hotly contested CXNE 2016 series.


    Riding road, mixed terrain, mountain bike, DH, and commuting to work daily, Francis is the epitome of the do-everything, go-anywhere cyclist. Francis is also an incredibly knowledgeable bike shop professional with many years' experience. Francis manages our online shop and is especially good at sourcing the hardest-to-find spare parts!


    Fiona doesn't describe herself as 'a cyclist'"', she's a person who just happens to enjoy riding a bike. And with a new Diamondback e-bike, she's enjoying cycling more than ever before.
