Buyer's Guides

Here at AW Cycles we realise just how hard it is to find what you are looking for as the range of bikes, frames, components, accessories and clothing can be somewhat daunting. This is why when we put together this site we gathered all our experts from the different departments in the shop and captured the advice, knowledge and experience that they give out everyday to customers in the shop.


Answering Your Questions

We have put together some really useful guides to help decipher the terminology, technology, compatibility and specific measurements to help you find the product that you are looking for. In these detailed buying guides you will find information on road cycles, MTB bikes, hybrid / commuting bicycles, BMX models, children's bikes, accessories and clothing. We have tried to explain everything clearly and not get bogged down in anything too technical. We will try and clear up any questions you might have rather than raise new ones! As with everything on this site, if we still haven't been able to answer your question or if you require any further advice, don't hesitate to contact our team of experienced bicycle experts.
