High-end cycling retailer and bike fit company Bespoke has opened its new flagship store in Canary Wharf's Crossrail Mall in London, with over 5,000 square feet available to show off the store's finest products.
With three bike fit studios, featuring Bespoke's 4D fit system and 3D motion sensoring equipment, and a mechanic's workshop, the new shop provides pre- and after-sale support.
And if you're keen on adding to your fleet of bikes, Bespoke offers a range of quality machines, wheels and accessories as well as being the world's largest dealer of Parlee custom bikes.
Bike displays, wheel displays and walls of clothing should be enough to whet your appetite, even if you're not in the market to buy anything.
Based on Level Minus Two of the new Crossrail Mall, designed by architect Norman Foster, Bespoke's new flagship store is designed to compliment its original location in Farringdon, which opened in 2007, as well as its Jermyn Street store in Central London.
