Bike Swanky demo fleet lets you try before you buy or lease

Wide range of bikes and wheels available to use before you commit

Bike Swanky now has an extensive range of bikes and wheelsets, covering all cycling disciplines and a range of prices, that you can try out before you buy.

Effectively, the demo fleet allows you to have an extended test ride. The fleet includes road bikes, triathlon/time trial bikes, Audax and touring bikes, commuter/city bikes, cyclocross bikes and mountain bikes.

The road bike fleet, for example, includes models from DeRosa – the SuperKing, Idol, Merak and R848 – Argon 18, Airstreeem and Roux while cyclocross bikes are available from BH, Kinesis and Roux.

Wheelsets include options from Fulcrum – Racing Zeros, among others – 3T and Token.

Bike Swanky offers riders three different ways to get hold of bikes, components and accessories. You can buy outright, get the bike on two-year 0% finance (on items from £150), or go for a two-year lease.

To try out the bikes and wheels, you need to contact Bike Swanky on 020 8133 6432 or use the contact page on

That warning light you can see is your humour detector requiring a servicing.
