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!

  • Fast rolling low profile central knobs with bulkier side knobs for cornering grip
  • RaceRiposte Compound
  • 26x2.10 or 29x2.25
Race Riposte Compound
Used in moto GP, moto-cross and Formula 1, this technology is now available for MTB. Race Riposte (RR) offers the perfect balance of performance, grip and puncture resistance allowing you to ride in total confidence.
  • A higher rebound for increased efficiency
  • Measured at 50 Shore, Race Riposte is one of the softest compounds available.

Tubeless Technology
MTB tyres with reinforced sidewalls and tubeless ready beads offer less weight, higher performance and increased safety.
Tested by the Orbea team and Julien Absalon. Tubeless Ready technology has been proven to offer all the advantages of Tubeless tyres but also reduces weight with an average saving of 160gms over standard Tubeless tyres.
  • A Fast'Air cartridge must be used to inflate the tyre to provide the latex seal which makes the tyre and rim air tight.
  • Tubeless Ready tyres can also be used with a standard inner tube.Cobra
