Hub Velo opened in April 2014 and have been busy making friends, fixing and selling bikes to the good people of East London. They say;
“We love all bikes, and whether you’re using yours to commute, shop, get fit, race or just explore, we are happy to help. We do all of those things on our bikes too! Between our friendly team we have significant experience in road, track, time trial, MTB and Cyclocross racing. We also enjoy helping young people to get on bikes.”
“We are proud to be the exclusive UK retailer of Stevens bikes. Made in Germany and ridden by World Cyclocross Champion 2015, Mathieu van der Poel, you can now ride the best in the UK.”
“STEVENS Bikes are exclusive to Hub Velo. You may know Stevens for making some of the very best cyclocross bikes in the world. Indeed at a recent CX World cup event, 7 of the top 10 riders were riding Stevens Super Prestige including rising superstar and 2015 world champion Mathieu van der Poel. Based in Hamburg, Stevens makes road, hybrid, mountain and e-bikes as well as its cyclocross range such as the beautiful Super Prestige Cyclocross Ultegra Disc Mechanical, now available through Hub Velo in the UK.”
“We have a range of Stevens Bikes in stock in our East London store, (and can order from the entire range) so if you’re interested in a test ride,or finding out more please do give us a call on 0203 490 2110, or drop us an email. We’re happy to arrange a test ride, or if you can’t visit us in London, we also ship bikes nationwide. Give us a call and we’ll be happy to discuss your needs and advise on size and spec.”
The bike should be the future for us all – simple. We like riding ours, fixing ours and yours too. We’ll always give you solid advice based on our experience and ensure you get the right bike for your needs and budget.
I still race unsuccessfully but with some enthusiasm, although it has to be said I am a brilliant Line Judge! Time trialling, track racing and touring are my main loves but over the last few years I have had the cyclo-cross bug. Certainly worked for me going over the Himalayas, if not week in, week out in the Eastern Cross League. Qualified coach and Cytech mechanic. Riding a Raleigh CX machine this season with SRAM CX1 – I know first time ever it hasn’t been Italian. May God have mercy on my soul.
I’ve always ridden bikes from the first taste of freedom on my solid tired bike at 4 years old, I’ve had many steads. I started riding a bike ‘properly’ at the age of 11. I just wanted to get out of my town and explore, this led on to my first bike race a couple of years later After some success on the road racing I was chosen to ride for The Great Britain team and selected to ride the World Championships (only managed first reserve..) I raced in Belgium and France for a season and ended up on the scrap heap in my early twenties… It was an amazing life affirming experience. After some years off the bike I am now firmly back in the saddle all the pleasure I remember from the early years are back. Now a qualified coach and lover of all things bike, Hub Velo feels like the natural place to be. Always up for a chat on routes, bikes, training and anything in between.
