Brilliant Bikes

We are creating a better place ... where we help you get to work or to the shops or just get out for a ride in a fun, healthy and environmentally responsible way - and with the right equipment so that you are pretty sure it's not going to be a one way trip. We started vittually in 2009, selling bicycle tools, spare parts and accessories using the Internet. In 2013 we opened our first shop in Chobham, Surrey, England so we now provide full mechanical service on all types of bikes (service, repair, upgrades and custom builds) as well as sales of new bikes from Brompton, Frog (children's bikes), Orbea (mountain, road and hybrid / comfort) and Pashley (British built classic bicycles). To us, cycling doesn't mean you have to race at elite level (though is there any reason not to?) - why not just take your bike next time you go to the Post Office or local shops? But maybe you need to do something, to make your bike better for that ride - repairing something or adding lights to keep you safer - for example? We hope you will find what you need here to help you keep cycling or re-kindle the love affair with your bike.
