WHO ARE CLOUD 9 CYCLES AND WHERE DID WE COME FROM?
Cloud 9 Cycles was started in 2009 with the aim of custom building bespoke bikes with no compromises.
In the last 9 years we have grown from a small workshop in Camden town to our flagship store just off Tottenham Court Rd in Central London.
In the shop we have a selection of the best frames, wheels and components available as well as some pre-built bikes as examples of what we can do.
We have a full workshop that services all bikes, wheel building facilities, bike fitting and frame building.
In the digital age we live, the general consensus is that buying online is easier – BUT we are here to prove that wrong, we are people who can talk to you face to face, understand your needs and get you the exact product you want.
If you’ve got questions about a new bike or would like to chew the fat about which groupset is better please get in touch and we will make sure a member of staff is available to give you all the time you need.
Kris has dreamed, lived and ridden bikes for the last 30 years! Originally from the mountainous area of Krynica in Poland he grew up mountain biking and has not looked back since.
A perfectionist Kris can often be found tinkering on his new Yeti or dreaming up new frames to build!
He has been known to come across as grumpy (or direct as he likes to justify) but he will always have your best interests at heart!
