Shop - Cyclopaedia, Cardiff

>> Saturday, 7 March 2009

I popped into Cyclopaedia in Cardiff today to get some bar tape for a singlespeed I am building for my lady. I wasn't in there long but it seems like a really nice little shop, it's well stocked with all the usual gear and the staff seemed to be very knowledgeable to me, I don't know why but they just did.

There was a fairly sizeable workshop area out the back and their website says that "Cyclopaedia is run by Cyclists for Cyclists - every member of staff is a Cyclist, some are triathletes as well!" which I can believe and I think we'll all agree that this is essential when looking for any kind of specialist shop. They deal with over 50 different suppliers and stock 200 brands so they should have what you need, if they don't they will try and order it for you.

I haven't been to any other bike shops in Cardiff yet but I'll happily recommend this one for now cause it was well stocked and had the kind of feeling you get when you go to a skater owned skate shop or an independent record store, know what I mean?

When you pop in there tell them that Fixed Gear Wales sent you, happy riding! :-)
