In 1983 Antonio Colombo invented an entirely new feeling in the history of cycling bartape: Cinelli Original Cork Ribbon. Upon its release this grippy, spongy but durable and ultralight mix of EVA and natural cork immediately rendered other bar tapes of the day (made from cotton or vinyl) technologically null. Within the space of a few short years the tape became an industry standard, spontaneously adopted by professional and amateur riders across the globe and copied (poorly) by every major cycling brand in the world. Cinelli were imitated so much, by everybody in the industry, who didnt just make bartape from EVA (Ethylene-Vinyl-Acetate) but also shamelessly sprinkled cork into their mix, making it seem almost identical. So Cinelli started writing Original Cork Ribbon on their boxes for those who couldnt remember! If it's not Cinelli, it's not original cork ribbon. Winner of the 2000 Consumer Choice Award.
If you require expedited/next day shipping, give us a call on 0141 552 0841 or drop us an email on email@example.com and we'll do our best to accommodate.
Every bike we sell is fully assembled and tested for safety by our trained mechanics. We then partly disassemble the bike and carefully re-pack to prepare for shipping.
Depending on the model, upon receipt you may be required to straighten and tighten the handlebars, reattach front wheel and attach the pedals. Please ensure that the pedals are greased and fitted correctly - the pedals will be marked L and R and have to be fitted to the left and right cranks respectively. Pedal do not come with every bike and need to be bough separately, especially on more high-end models. Please check when you are ordering.
There is a guide in the box telling you which tools you will need and the steps to follow. This will require some degree of mechanical skill to put together and can need some minor adjustments. The less confident you are in this field the more we'd recommend having it checked over by a professional mechanic.
We offer a standard 48Hr Service for courier shipping via Royal Mail for accessories, and APC Next Day for bike deliveries.
