UK delivery

If your item is in stock and ordered before 12pm, we will do our best to despatch your order the day you place it. In busy times we tell you how long it will take us to process it.

The above does not apply to bikes, which we have to assemble and inspect before repacking for dispatch. Typically we try to have bike orders dispatched within 3-5 days, but in busier times it may take longer. In those cases we'll let you know of longer than expected delivery times.

Please bear in mind that we are closed on Wednesdays, so no items will be dispatched then.

Free postage over £40

For small items we use Royal Mail's 48 service which has a delivery time of typically 2-3 days from dispatch; though you do have the option to upgrade to 24 which is generally next-day from dispatch if you require your order sooner. Please note in some cases the item will need to be signed for, so please provide an address where someone will be in.

Orders of over £40 will qualify for free standard postage with Royal Mail 48. This may exclude certain bulky or awkward items which will be calculated automatically at the basket screen.

Bike shipping

When we send out a larger parcel such as a bike or trailer we use a next-day courier - usually either DPD or Parcelforce.

For these reasons please supply us with a delivery address where there will be someone in to sign for your parcel. If there is nobody in when the couriers call, they will leave a card. You can then phone them to arrange delivery for another day or collect your goods from your local depot (a photo ID with proof of address will be required).

How will my bike be delivered?

We fully assemble, safety check and inspect every bike as though you were going to ride it away from our showroom.

However, to get it back into a box suitable for a courier to handle, we have to remove the pedals, handlebar and usually the front wheel - so some minor reassembly is required when the bike is delivered to you.

Please bear in mind that you might need a 15mm spanner for the pedals (adult's bikes generally do not come with pedals included, so you may not need to worry about this), and 4mm, 5mm and 6mm allen/hex keys for the reassembly.

Outside the UK

Since Brexit it is no longer feasible for our website to have permanent shipping prices for international delivery. Instead, if there is an item you are interested in, please Contact Us with a full delivery address and we will quote for delivery.

All the prices on our website and catalogue are in pounds sterling and are inclusive of VAT, but VAT will be removed for international orders. Please bear in mind that you will likely have to pay your country's taxes, import duties and associated courier handling fees for any items.

Cycle to Work

×

The Cycle to Work scheme is a government scheme designed to provide a more affordable way for you to purchase a new bike & equipment for cycling to work.

Depending on your tax bracket and the scheme provider used, you can save 25%-47% on the price of a new bike and accessories as well as spreading the cost over a period of 6-48 months without paying any interest.

The bike purchased on the scheme can be any kind of bike - hybrid bike, road bike, mountain bike, electric bike, cargo bike - as long as the primary user of the bike is the person who took out the scheme. So... no children's bikes, sorry.

It sounds too good to be true, but rest assured it really is that much of a no-brainer.

  2. Head to the checkout and select Collect in Store as your delivery region under the Delivery Region/Country header.
  3. Proceed through the online checkout and pay for your items as usual.
  4. We'll be in touch as soon as your order is ready to collect! In cases where an item is out of stock or might take a while to arrive we'll let you know. Payment is not actually processed against your card until we've accepted the order.
  5. Come to the store and collect your items whenever is convenient. Please bring valid photo ID just in case!

Giant Defy Advanced SL 0 2024

Giant Defy Advanced SL 0

Go long. Go fast. Superlight and silky smooth, the flagship series of the new Defy range is back to reclaim its title as the pinnacle of endurance road. It's the perfect choice for the sportive or gran fondo that's circled on your calendar.


Key Performance Features





Giant Defy SL 0


Functional simplicity


Free of cumbersome gimmickry, the frameset is one of the lightest in its category. With a perfect balance of high-performance reactivity and all-day comfort, it offers a "less is more" experience for modern endurance road riding.








Giant Defy SL 0 Bike


Engineered compliance


Advanced SL-grade composite frame and fork are specifically engineered for endurance road riding, delivering a smooth and efficient ride quality that minimises fatigue on long rides. The new D-Fuse components work together to further absorb road shocks and vibrations.








Giant Defy Advanced SL 0 2024


Total control


A new Contact D-Fuse handlebar features ergonomic shaping and an 8-degree flare for comfort and control on all-day rides. Wide, hookless carbon rims (22.4mm inner width) are optimised for high-volume tubeless tyres (up to 38mm), and a 36mm rim depth offers stable, predictable handling in crosswinds.






Ultralight carbon endurance road bike

With greater lateral stiffness and a superlight frame weight of 785g, this is the most efficient Defy ever. The composite frame layup targets smooth-riding performance for long, hard rides. The new D-Fuse SLR seatpost is now lighter and engineered with 40 percent added compliance. The Contact SLR D-Fuse handlebar, also new, features similar D-shaped tubing as the seatpost to absorb shocks and vibrations, plus an 8-degree flare for improved ergonomics and control. Component highlights include the new Contact SLR AeroLight stem with integrated cable routing. A CADEX 36 WheelSystem with superlight hookless carbon rims delivers snappy yet stable handling and superior tubeless tyre performance.
