The Wheelies brand has evolved significantly since our humble beginnings as a cycle shop in the Swansea Uplands back in 1982, when Mike Jones and Keith Jones wanted to share their passion for the latest craze in sports – mountain biking. We are incredibly fortunate to be surrounded by the glorious South Wales landscape with some of the best cycling locations in the world, from mountain biking in the forest parks, to road cycling through the Brecon Beacons and the relaxing routes of the Welsh National Cycling Network.
Throughout the 90’s Wheelies grew rapidly as a mail order catalogue business with our product ranges expanding to cover all cycling disciplines, from road bikes to mountain bikes, cyclocross to BMX. Our online retail outlet stocks one of the largest ranges of cycling products of any retailer in the UK, with almost 20,000 makes and models available from the biggest and best brands in cycling, including Specialized, Giant, Scott, Bianchi, Altura, Endura, Polaris and many many more.
Our commitment to providing our customers the best possible shopping experience at the lowest prices has always been the same, right from the start as an over-the-counter bike shop. We recognise the importance of familiarity and long-standing service. That’s why not only do we offer to match our competitors prices, it’s why our original Wheelies Uplands shop in Swansea continues to thrive alongside Wheelies.co.uk over a quarter of a century later.
