We are giving you the chance to take 5% off any Rohloff bike from the Shand range until the end of this month (see below for details).
After four busy and exciting days spent in Birmingham at the Cycle Show, our team is now back in the workshop unpacking the bikes we took with us – the Stoater, the Stooshie, the Bahookie and the new Leveret – and resuming our daily duties of sizing, welding, painting and assembling bikes for our customers. We are all still buzzing a little bit from meeting so many fellow cyclists! It was great to chat to them all on our stand and answer questions, technical or not – so thank you to everyone that came to see us and said Hi!
We were especially delighted to have our two brand ambassadors and inspirational endurance cyclists – the Guinness World record holder, Jenny Graham, who caused many jaws to drop when she recounted her 124 days of unsupported riding around the world last year; and adventurer, world traveller and first woman to complete the Silk Road Mountain Race legendary Jenny Tough who spoke candidly about what it takes to win when not all goes your way!
It was also great to meet our two lucky winners of the pairs of tickets we offered in August – John Lindsey from Ayr and Callum James from Preston. Once again congratulations to both – hope you and your guests enjoyed the show!
To celebrate the end of this fantastic event, we are offering everyone who places a new order with us between 13th September and 30th September 2019 the opportunity to save 5% off any of our Rohloff bikes. Simply enter the code ROHLOFF19 in the Promotional code section in the Order form on each page, and our team will apply the discount for you. If you have any questions please let us know and by all means check out the Terms and Conditions below!

The UK’s biggest cycling event is fast approaching!
Held at the NEC Birmingham from 13-15th September, The Cycle Show is a key date in the calendar of everyone with a passion for cycling in the UK and abroad.
A selection of our popular Shand models have been updated and will be debuting at the show, we have two guest speakers in attendance to offer an insight into their exciting Shand driven adventures and we’ll be launching the NEW Shand Leveret.
Shand Cycles are looking to add two workshop assistants to our small dynamic team based at our manufacturing HQ in Livingston. The successful candidate(s) will perform number of duties spread across the three main areas of the business; Fabrication, Paint and Assembly.
The new team members will provide assistance to the existing workshop staff working across all disciplines in creating a complete bicycle from raw frame tubes, through paint and final component assembly. This will be a very varied role with a significant amount of potential for learning the many skills involved in making bespoke and production bicycles. These skills will include working with machine tools (milling machines, lathes etc), preparing tubes for welding, welding/brazing, preparing frames for paint, painting and finishing frames, final bicycle assembly (including hydraulic systems, suspension, beltdrive and internal gear hubs).
The ideal candidate will be used to working with their hands and have a basic working knowledge of metal working hand-tools. Bicycle assembly would be highly desirable. Knowledge and experience of paint systems would be advantageous but not expected. Full training will be giving across all areas but a self-starting, enthusiastic, fast learner will be preferred.
These roles would be perfect for those already in the bicycle industry, perhaps as a mechanic, but wishing to move to the next level. Also perfect for someone currently in a manufacturing role but wishing to get into the bicycle industry,

On Sunday 28 April 2019 our team will be heading out to the iconic Loch Ness for this years’ 66 mile closed-road route around the famous Scottish landmark.
The race starts and finishes in the Highland capital of Inverness, and there is a timed King of the Mountain stage, with a 4.8 mile climb gaining 380m in height with a gradient reaching 12% at times. Should be fun – more information visit their website www.etapelochness.com.
We are delighted that a team of cyclists from our parent company, the GFG Alliance, will be using our own bikes to race – so watch out for the Shand bikes along the route!
In addition, we would like to invite anyone needing mechanical assistance or technical help to come and see us. Our two CyTech qualified members of staff will be on hand to assist everyone – just look out for the Shand stand in the Event Village and one of our team will be waiting with a smile!
If there are any urgent parts that are needed they can be purchased on the day at the Cycle Republic stand.
Having taken part in the first ever Silk Road Mountain Race last year (and sponsoring the podcast), it was a delight to see the PEdALED documentary now available to view online. Watching it has brought back so many memories and emotions of such a tough race in a wonderful and dramatic place.
You can watch the film below and it does give a real feel for the race, country and people.
