Singletrack Showroom of the year.
Showroom of the year
Singletrack know their stuff, so we are delighted that they named our shop Showroom of the year. “we fell quite rightly head over heels, for the dark (F1-slick) and stealthy feel of the guys at Ubyk”.
SHOWROOM

The concept behind our award-winning store was to design a fun, relaxed and informative space that made bikes and their components the main focal point so, like an art gallery or jewellery shop, the space is a blank black canvas from floor to ceiling. Take a virtual tour.

Then, visitors are guided around the shop through the use of lighting and monitors, giving a totally new style of customer experience. The facility features a technology-driven bike fitting room with full motion capture, ubyk PRO-fit, and a bike fitness facility for ubyk’s PRO-formance programmes.

Enjoy a fresh coffee while you chat to

SUPER BIKES

Oxford maybe the Cycling City but thanks to ubyk it’s also the home of super bikes with brands such as Look, Parlee, Storck, Cinelli, Eddy Merckx, Ibis, Yeti, Santa Cruz and more.

Look - 695

The 695 Light Ultegra Di2 2015 is a bicycle in the ultra light category, coveted by regular and performing cyclists. It keeps the precise steering from the 695 Aerolight,with its Aerostem and HSC 7 fork, the ZED 2 crank set that enables optimal power transfer and the E-post for the comfort of the cyclist. The 695 Light Ultegra Di2 2015 is the bicycle of the range dedicated to demanding racers and cycling athletes. See bike.

Look - 695
Santa Cruz - Bronson

Two decades of evolution, an entirely new trail frame, new wheel size and new perspective on what 6” of travel can conquer.

The Bronson 650b Trail is not some rehashed 27.5" tribute act to anything else in our range. It stands alone as a testament to the years of refining at our old Bronson Street facility.

The Santa Cruz Bronson 650b breaks straight onto the scene as the race rig for their Enduro World Series campaign. See bike.

Santa Cruz - Bronson
Parlee - Z3

Honored as Race Bike of the Year by Cycling Weekly Magazine, the Parlee Z3 shares the same semi-custom architecture and pricing scale as the Parlee Z2, but in a sloping geometry format. Never before has a frame of this caliber been available with so many customisation and ride tune options.

The Parlee Z3 comes in seven Flex Fit semi-custom sizes, or you may choose full custom geometry in sizes up to 70cm. Riders can also choose tube set type, ranging from super light SL, to extra-strong XL, to compliant CL, to the visually appealing of X-woven finish. See bike.

Parlee - Z3
Eddy Merckx - 525

The EMX-525 is named after the total number of victories Eddy had during the course of his race career. Both ultra stiff and light, it uses a combination of shape design and a unique carbon fibre mix that barely distorts or twists at all. It means that virtually all of a rider’s power is converted into rapid forward motion, and there is little or no wastage. The 2015 version comes with full Ultegra Di2 groupset which is utterly smooth, fast, precise and dependable. The bike also comes fitted with Fulcrum Racing Wheels and the superb Vittoria Open Corsa CX tyres. See bike.

Eddy Merckx - 525
PRO-Fit

We’re passionate about making biking enjoyable. Being fitted to your bike correctly is the most important element to any serious cyclist. Get it wrong and you will end up with a cycle that is uncomfortable and does not handle correctly, generally making your riding experience more of a chore, and much less enjoyable - improper body positioning can result in a disappointing ride and, often, injury.

A PRO-fit consultation, using your existing bike or a model purchased from us, consists of:

Motion Capture

A majority of fittings done today are static. However as cycling is a continuous repetitive motion sport we use PRO-fit with motion analysis to provide us with a detailed capture of your riding style. We evaluate your movement while pedalling using C.A.D to gain an accurate measurement and then make fine adjustments to your saddle, shoes, and pedals to assure you use minimum effort to control the bike. This then allows you to achieve your maximum performance. The smallest changes in posture or position can show large improvements in overall performance and help reduce injuries.

Positioning

Correct positioning is key to successful cycling – even a slight misalignment can cause discomfort. As well as using motion capture to perfect your position, we also use classic tools including a Goniometer to measure your leg angle and a size 'O Matic stem for finding the right height and length of stem. Knee and foot alignment are crucial; if the knee isn’t bending correctly or your foot isn’t aligned this can cause stress, so we now offer cleat height spacing for Shimano, Speedplay, Look and Time pedals and pedal axel extenders.

Call 01865 596112 or email pro-fit@ubyk.co.uk to book a PRO-fit consultation.

ABOUT US

ubyk and ubyk Oxford have won a much deserved accolade in the world of high-end bikes. So how did it all start? Quite simply, it was the successful collaboration of two guys with an addiction to bikes, art and music.

James Heath
“Essentially, I’m a graphic designer who’s mad about quality bikes. I started getting into bikes in 1990, I was literally thrown into a Cyclo-Cross event by my uncle but didn’t enjoy it! Then the mountain bike arrived and, at the age of 12, I was hooked. As a kid, my hobbies were bikes, drawing and music and I chose to follow the drawing path, graduating as a graphic designer and eventually heading up a London design agency. After learning about web design, marketing and SEO, I decided to use these skills to set up a business that related to my passion for bikes.”

Neill Coventry
“I’m a chartered accountant who came to cycling late in life as a way of getting and staying fit whilst working in London. I found I had an aptitude for time trialling and began the quest for faster and faster times. I’ve raced at National Championship level from 10 miles up to 50 miles, competed in Open events of up to 100 miles, broken several club records and became Club Champion of High Wycombe CC. I still race at National Championship level for both Senior and Veteran events and have a wealth of experience in time trialling and on road training, more specifically on the turbo.”

Team
Avid road cyclist Richard Moir (‘magic Moir’) manages the web sales & dispatch team; Arthur Browne (our ‘hi-end bike’ guru) manages the web team; Josh is our chief mechanic who has the hard job building very sexy bikes all week; and racer Tony Ball is our inspirational fitness guru.

PRO-BUILD

Take one great graphic designer with brilliant technology skills who’s also an obsessive cyclist and keen to build his dream bike! James Heath designed the original PRO-build tool to meet his own needs – to enable him to create an online visual of the high-end bike he wanted to create.

He recognised that there must be other people out there who wanted to design their own bike and would it find it helpful and reassuring to see just how the product would look at each stage of construction.

Market research showed his hunch was correct and he setup an online bike store, ubyk Ltd, launching the custom bike tool PRO-build within the website www.ubyk.co.uk in 2012 for Parlee and Ritte brands. James also developed a comprehensive e-commerce facility for easy sourcing of bike components, both to be used alongside PRO-build and also to expand the general bike product range. PRO-build has made its mark in the industry and now people all over the UK are using ubyk’s website to produce really great designs. You can start building your dream bike by choosing your frame from some of the best high end Road Bike brands on offer - Look, Parlee, Eddy Merckx, Cinelli, Ritte, Olympia, Lynskey, Neilpryde and more - and then start adding from the available components.


Once you’re happy with your design, our expert workshop team will build the bike in the ubyk workshop, piece by piece. You’ll be involved in the whole experience by cataloguing every stage, with an option to fine tune and revise your design along the way.

Each of our team members has a genuine passion for biking and, while we might not like the term, we’re all definitely bike geeks! We design them, build them, ride them, write about them, fix them, share our expert knowledge about them – and love to do all of these! Our bike-build service is second to none and you’ll enjoy dealing with our friendly team.

PRO-Formance

Whatever level you aspire to, PRO-formance can help you achieve your sporting goals. PRO-formance comprises of a range of highly competitive tailored bike training plans created from a three part test. At ubyk, we do not believe in guess work so your tailored bike training programme will be based on fact derived from the results of a physiological check that accurately ascertains a rider’s outputs and capacities enabling us to maximize your training.


The Coach
Tony has been involved in cycling and multisport events since his early teens. He has competed successfully in road races, time trials, cyclosportives and various multisport events over the years. He now helps others to achieve their targets whilst continuing to race at a high level.

The PRO-formance cycle three-part test comprises of:

Aerobic ramp test
This test is recorded using power (watts) and usually lasts around 15-20 minutes (not including warm up), depending on how fit you are. It will accurately determine your maximum aerobic capacity and enable the ubyk team to assess your training zones.

Anaerobic sprint power
A maximal 10 second sprint, which can determine what type of rider you are.

Lactic test
Using the PRO-formance cycle test we can accurately assess your lactic capability and confirm other fundamental areas. Once we have this data, we can then formulate a detailed training schedule to enhance your output and set you on the road to achieve your goals.

Email: pro-formance@ubyk.co.uk or ring 01865 596112 to set up your PRO-formance appointment in-store and get on track with your individually devised and delivered professional bike training programme.

CUSTOM BUILDS

Custom building is something we pride ourselves on doing well, in fact one of our Santa Cruz builds got ‘Custom Build of the Year' by Singletrack in 2014. We have a wealth of experience and can offer you great advice on what works best for the type of riding you do.

Here are a few custom builds we have built for customer. If you are interested in a custom build, be it from the ground up, or from a frame and some of your existing parts, please contact us on tech@ubyk.co.uk
