A Friendly Bike Shop in the North of Cambridge City (Girton)

Chris's Bikes is on Thornton Way, 5 minutes from Cambridge City centre. We have great deals on new bikes by Fahrrad Manufaktur, Giant, Dawes and Dahon as well as on accessories and clothing. We've been in business since September 1992 and are known for excellent quality service and repair work. We also hire bikes to individuals and to organisations.

We now offer bikes and equipment TAX FREE with the Cycle to Work (C2W) Scheme

Please note, though, that some of our special offers may not be available through this scheme due to extra costs involved but with the tax free element you will probably significantly beat the special offer price anyway!

Opening hours currently.

I am recovering from the broken hip and now on one crutch so spending more time working in the shop. This week starting 16/05/16 open Tuesday, Weds and Thursday p.m and Friday and Saturday.
Many thanks. Chris.

Update on  17/05/2016. Just a quick note to say thank you so much to you customers who have been supporting my business through what must be an irritating time for you !! The many people who have waited until Saturdays to come and view ,ride and buy the VSF bicycles has renewed my faith in the human state !!

Once again thanks so much. I will try and open more in the coming weeks and will update on this page .

Update on  17/05/16. Planning to be in the shop more this week especially on sunny days ! Call before you come to check that I am in  as I will be picking and choosing my days.......but I can always arrange to meet you here if you want to try bikes or need advice about the many and varied VSF stable of bicycles !.Still open every Saturday of course !

Update 29/05/16 I will only be in the shop on Saturday this coming week  and Friday and Saturday the week after. Thanks.

Fahrrad Manufaktur

If you need a really good quality commuter or touring bike then look at my article on Fahrrad Manufaktur bikes under bike reviews.You cannot beat these bikes for quality and value.I have many bikes in stock with many different configurations-------some hub geared 7 or 8 speed sachs or shimano.Some have coaster brake as well as v brakes,some do not.Some have fully enclosed chainglider chainguards,some do not.Others are multigeared with many different specs.Some have Magura hydraulic brakes.If you are 7' tall they will make a bike that fits you. I could go on and on.Just remember you can not buy a bike of this quality from major manufacturers at anything like as good a price.

I have quite a few pics and reports on these bikes throughout the site---take a look at another model here----T300 8 speed with magura hydraulic brakes.A mouthwatering ride fantastic quality!
