With small business Saturday coming up this weekend, we thought we would highlight some of the best local cycling businesses here in Northern Ireland. The popularity of Amazon and online shopping means it can be easy to overlook local business, but often some of the most innovative and exciting products are being created right at your doorstep. If you’re on the lookout for cycling gear, be sure to check out these businesses and support local! 


Victory Chimp


Up first we’ve got a favourite of ours - Victory Chimp. Victory Chimp creates cycling art, apparel and accessories in their own unique style. All their products are designed here in Northern Ireland, with their designs strongly influenced by rides around the Sperrin Mountains. They’ve even got an entire clothing collection dedicated to the Sperrins! Their sienna and blue colour schemes are instantly recognisable. 


Featured Item:  Stampen Stripes Mens Jersey

Fustle


Fustle is a relatively new Northern Irish cycling company, specialising in making custom off-road bikes. All Fustle bikes are built by hand, and you can choose from ready made spec bikes, or opt to have your own custom bike made and tuned exactly to your specifications. I think you'll agree that the Causeway BACKROAD featured here is a beauty of a bike!


Featured Item:  Causeway BACKROAD

Galibier


Galibier specialise in cycling jerseys, gilets and accessories. Based in Northern Ireland but inspired by the Galibier Pass, they produce sleek, comfortable and stylish gear, with a strong focus on performance. You simply can't go wrong with Galibier gear. 


Featured Item:  Route Winter Jacket

 

Big Loop Bikes

Big Loop Bikes is a bike refurbishment social enterprise that has been running since 2017. Big Loop collects unused and unwanted bikes from the local community, and then recycles and refurbishes them for sale at pop up shops. They are now operating out of Queen’s University from Tuesday to Friday, and offer an extensive list of bike repairs and services. Truly a brilliant idea and well worth checking out. 


Featured item: Service Deal 01

The Yard Cafe

Another See.Sense favourite, The Yard is an impressive cycle-themed cafe located in Rathfriland. Here you can get your classic coffee and treats, yet with the added bonus of cycle gear and plenty of cycling knowledge and advice. A must visit cafe if you’re nearby!


Featured Item:  Anything freshly baked from their oven!

Donard Bikes


Based in Strangford Lough, Donard Bikes make handmade custom bikes. They produce a wide variety of custom bikes -  ranging from road bikes to gravel bikes - all of which are designed, manufactured, painted and assembled by hand out of their workshop. A serious amount of craft, engineering and know-how goes into each one of these handmade bikes. 


Featured Item:  Donard Elite 


Scribe Cycling


Scribe is another recently founded company, specialising in producing high-quality wheel-sets. Their wheels exclusively use a single disc Ratchet Drive System - aresponsive high torque system that's durable and easy to service. These are undoubtably some of the top wheels on the market right now. 


Featured Item:  Core Range - Aero Wide 38


Mango Bikes

Mango Bikes is an online bike store, primarily focused on selling their unique range of signature, pre-made bikes. However, each bike can be personally customised, or made entirely to custom request. Every bike is made and sprayed in their warehouse in Ballyclare. These bikes are particularly great if you’re just starting out cycling. 


Featured Item:  Original Single Speed - Classic Cream



See.Sense


Lastly, it’s us!  We create award-winning cycling technology including our intelligent bike lights that react to their environment, improving your visibility.  With our free companion app, they also connect you to crash and theft alerts to make cycling safer and smarter.
