New & refurbished bikes for sale

As second-hand bike specialists, we have a wide range of bikes to show you - From vintage racers to hybrids and mountain bikes. All second hand bikes are fully serviced and safety checked. This guarantees that they are safe and in good working condition.


Parts, clothing and accessories

We stock full range of new parts, along with a collection of second hand bike parts spanning decades. We also carry all the accessories, clothing and protective gear to keep you riding in safety and comfort.


Maintenance courses

We believe that bike experts should illuminate, not intimidate. So we offer a warm welcome and a supportive, no-pressure environment where you can ask questions and learn more.

In fact, we even offer training workshops to get you more comfortable with the ins and outs of basic cycle maintenance.


Volunteering

You can get involved in running the workshop, learn about mechanics and help support excluded people in the community. We have mechanical roles, if you like getting your hands dirty, and business/admin roles too, if that's more your style.

Details of the roles available and information on how to apply can be found on the Julian House website. This is one of the charities that runs Exeter Bike Workshop.
