An Introduction

Sherwood Pines Cycles would like you to meet Mr David Fletcher our professional cyclist.
The teams name: Sherwood Pines Cycles Felt, Enve.

As well as having a full programme of races himself this year he will be helping with the development of the junior team we have at the pines, David is currently training very hard for the upcoming season with the long term focus being the Olympics August 2016.

We wish him and all the team riders the best of luck for the upcoming season.

OK now the bike

The frame is a FELT FRD full carbon provided by Felt it’s a fast riding 29er frame but with a 71.5 degree head angle means it turns fast and tight.
The Wheels are Enve M60, light and super strong together with the Chris King hubs 72 tooth engagement means instant, positive pick up, the bars, stem and seatpost are taken care of by Enve are carbon, again super light and strong.

The front forks are Rockshox Sid XX light strong and silky smooth, these will have no problem taking whatever David can throw at them.
The brakes are Shimano XTR M9000 again light, powerful but very progressive.
The Drivetrain is the all new Shimarno XTR 11 speed. David has chosen a single ring set up at the front with a11-40 tooth rear cassette topped of with some XTR M9000 SPD’S.

Two of the Three contact points are taken care of by a Fizi:k Aliante seat and Enve wheels wrapped in Vredestein black panther xtrac tyres. David hasn’t chosen his grips and no front chainring yet, but the bike is looking stunning in its monochrome colours.

We would like to thank Felt for the frame, Enve components for wheels,bars,stem and seatpost, Shimarno for the brakes and drivetrain, Vredestein for the tyres, Fizi:k for the seat, Smith Optics for glasses and all other sponsors for their help and support.

All the components on David’s bike are available from Sherwood Pines Cycles.

Super Frame Offer – Felt Nine 1 (limited amount available)

We have a very special offer…

And at this point we are probably the first people in the UK to offer this frame for sale!

Felt Nine 1 2015

RRP £1200




Our Price is only £950

The race season is fast approaching, so we are expecting these frames to sell as fast as they ride, that means quickly!

Stiff yet compliant, lightweight yet durable, this is the all new Felt Nine 1. The UHC Advanced carbon fibre frame of the Nine 1 provides all the characteristics you dream of in a fast, race-ready hardtail frameset. Factor in the smooth, surefooted ride of its 29-inch wheels and the efficiency of a hardtail- you have a bike that makes riding singletrack more fun than ever before.

We currently have:

2x 20″ frames and 2x 18″ frames for sale.

One has already sold, so please call before you come to see us in case they have all gone.

Something for the cyclist in your life?!

Are you struggling to find something for that “awkward” cyclist?

Is the lycra you buy for them too tight? are the baggy shorts too baggy?!

If so, you can purchase a gift voucher from us, in any denomination you would like. So they can buy what they’d like and be happy cyclists all through Christmas and in to the New Year…


They are available in store, so come in to see us. Or you can phone up and we can take a payment and send them out (Royal Mail Signed For).

(Redeemable against everything we sell in store, as well as hire bikes and service work)

Premier Rally – 23rd November 2014



On Sunday 23rd November the Premier Rally is taking place in Sherwood Pines Forest Park.

This is an excellent day and an opportunity for you to get to see some great cars and fantastic driving.

However, it means that the cycle trails will BE SHUT.

It also means we WON’T be hiring bikes out for the day.

But, the shop will still be OPEN, so you can still come shopping, drop your bikes off for service, or just come and say hello! Although, we may be out taking it in turns to watch the cars!!
