New Brands for 2016

2016 is a time of big changes in Moonglu. We have shifted focus and all those that have visited the store recently will have seen the beginnings of these changes. We have partnered with class leading brands such as Park Tool, Continental, Shimano, Lazer, Pro, Garmin, Quad Lock and Pearl Izumi to transform the shop and offer a much broader range of product. Over the early part of 2016 this will continue as we change the interior of the shop and display to allow us to include even more products. Our stock of Shimano components will be un-rivalled in North Yorkshire and this stock will cover road and mountain, gear and brake components and a huge range of common spares. 


It's certainly exciting times and to add to our growing range of components we are now a dealer for Genesis Bikes, Ridley Bikes, Ridgeback and Saracen Bikes.

We have already started taking stock of these brands and so far have the Core range of Genesis hardtail mountain bikes on display, together with the CdA, Croix de Fer and Equilibrium Disc. We're truly excited about the Datum, their brand new carbon gravel and multisport bike. This bike is destined for great things and we can't wait to get one out on the road/track.

Ridley are the market leader in cyclo cross bikes and they have a fantastic range of bikes, particularly in cross but also gravel and multisport road. We look forward to working with this brand and expanding our range of their bikes in the near future. 

Our first Ridgeback and Saracen Bikes arrived before Christmas and they've already proved to be popular. We don't see ourselves stocking the whole range of these two brands but they both have strength, particularly Ridgeback children's bikes and Saracen entry level mountain bikes. 

We will continue to update our website in the coming weeks to include our stock bikes.

Our wheel building will not fall by the wayside, together with the arrival of the new Hope Pro 4 hubs, we also have a new working relationship DT Swiss and we'll be offering wheel builds with their hubs, spokes and rims both road and mountain. From February will also be stocking DT Swiss factory wheelsets. Details of these new handbuilt wheels are available in our wheel shop

These brands will be in addition to Giant Bikes. Moonglu have a long standing relationship with Giant and their bikes continue to dominate the market, particularly their road bikes. 2016 is another great year for Giant road bikes and their 3 well defined ranges, Propel aero bikes, TCR compact road bikes and Defy disc equipped endurance bikes continue to lead the market with innovation, technology, specification, looks and reviews.
