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!

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!
