A Picarock bike is designed to be practical, but with a strong sense of timeless style and classic features. Our bikes are versatile because of the many configurations possible. For example, our frames can be built into a lightweight and simple single speed bike for urban riding, but maintain all the features required to upgrade to have gears, fatter tyres, mudguards and pannier racks in case you need to take it on a touring adventure! We like to try out new ideas, and are always creating interesting custom bikes such as vintage style path racers, or elegant ladies town. Take a look at our 'Custom Gallery' to see the sort of things we have made.
With all the noise currently being made about electric bikes, you might be thinking, ‘That’s all very well, but I want to keep my existing bike’. Well good news – ol’ faithful can be rigged up with an e-bike conversion kit.
There are a number of ways to electrify your existing bike and start zooming up those hills: you can fit a powered wheel, either front or rear; you can attach a drive unit to the bottom bracket; you can fit a motor above the rear wheel and drive it via friction; or, most sneakily, you can conceal a motor in the seatpost.
Over 90% of non-electric pedal cycles and tricycles can be converted with one system or another, so a bike you already own, the one that has been sitting at the back of a shed for years or one that you use regularly, can in most cases be the basis for electrically assisted cycling. And something really important to point out about kits is that if at some time in the future you decide to change your bike, it can be removed and fitted to another bike. Alternatively, you may be thinking of buying a new or used bike with the intention of converting it yourself or having it converted for you.
I have recently bought an electric bike from here and I love it. Service is second to none. Highly recommend.
Had a great time! Totally recommend trying an electric bike if you haven't before.
Richard and Andy who run the shop could not have been more helpful guiding me through the excellent range of bikes that they stock.
