Fatbirds Don't Fly

Fatbirds lives and breathes bikes and cycling accessories. We've been in business for 20 years - 9 of which have been online - and have built a reputation for the best brands, excellent prices, fantastic cycling knowledge and great customer service.

Over the last 7 years we've developed an addiction to all things Titanium and work with companies such as Van Nicholas, Kinesis, J Guillem and Lynskey. We understand that we’re now Europe's biggest dealer in Titanium road bikes – and have between 15 and 20 bikes built up for customers to test at any one time.   

We help customers build bikes from frame. We provide a full fitting service and work with customers to specify all the required items for their new bike - frame type and size, groupset, crank length, cassette size, stem size, bar width - and so on, so that they get the perfect bike for them.

We offer a highly secure shopping environment (via sagepay) and next day delivery service on all orders over £20 across the UK (mainland). We also deliver around the world. So, happy shopping! If you've any queries or questions please call us on 01485 535 875 and all comments are gratefully received through info@fatbirds.co.uk

Workshop & Bike Servicing

6 week free service

Keep your new bike in top condition.

Once you've bought your bike, feel free to give us a call if you have any questions. We will have set up your bike so there was very little to do once you received it but you may still want to tweak it to fit your riding style.

After 6 weeks, call us to arrange a free check-up. We'll give it a very brief service but it's important to make sure that your new bike is running as it should be.
