Just a few of the bikes that have been part of the cartel
Here at The VBC we are passionate about all kinds of cycling, but vintage bikes and custom builds run through our blood.
We stock around 40 vintage and retro bikes at any one time, including classic lightweights and even retro ATB and Mountain Bikes.
Our ethos is to make these bikes accessible to even those on a modest budget.
We believe that a bike is only original once and try to work with a frame as it is rather than respray - unless that is what the customer requires.
Recycling is one of our core values and we often use refurbished vintage parts on our builds.
We use numerous cutting, polishing and buffing techniques to bring things back to their former glory.
With a huge stock of old and vintage parts you will be surprised what we can create on a tighter budget.
But if you want to go all out, we can supply and fit new parts too.
Unlike some stores, we love to talk bikes, and you are welcome to visit us for a coffee and a chat.
