Founded back in 1992, Apex Cycles is a well established and trusted cycle shop located in Clapham, London.
Since we opened our doors in February of that year, members of the cycling community around us have relied on our honest and expert approach to selling and repairing bicycles. You will still find those same founders of Apex Cycles working in store to this day, to the same high standards that both our customers old and new have come to expect.

With our friendly and expert advice, we look forward to seeing you soon.

Easter Bank Holiday

Apex Cycles will be taking a break for the Easter Holidays and so we will be closed from Good Friday until Easter Monday (14th - 17th April). We will be back open as usual on Tuesday 15th April!

New 2017 Bikes!

It's that time of the year again when all of Apex's favourite bike brands release their new models. They've been creeping into our store slowly over the last few weeks and there's more to come!

This includes road bikes from Giant, Specialized and Liv, with prices starting at a fantastic £524.99 in both men's and women's models.

We have a great range of hybrid / city bikes also from all of the brands we stock. New models include the Alibi from Specialized which uniquely have airless tyres and a rustless chain. No more punctures! Perfect as a lower maintenance bicycle.

Those looking for a faster / slicker / sportier hybrid should come and look at our range of bikes from Giant & Whyte. The Rapid & R7 models are just what you need for a quicker and easier cycle to work or out for a longer ride on the weekend.

'Innovate Or Die'

The slogan used by this American brand sums it all up. They produce a huge range of bikes. We particularly like the Sirrus and Secteur lines for our customer base. The Sirrus being brilliant as a commuter, whilst the Secteur is a comfortable, all day road bike.

Now in their 30th year of producing British designed bicycles, Ridgeback have been a brand we've been happy to sell here at Apex for many years.

The Rapide range make excellent, comfortable commuters and have been very popular with our customers.

A UK brand that makes some fantastic mountainbikes, though here at Apex being in the heart of London, we are much more interested in their quick and stylish urban bikes. The R7 range is a particular favourite of ours.
Perfect for a fast and fun commute!

British designed. Built with British Reynolds Steel. A great fleet of steeds to choose from, ranging from race to road to trail.

The ever popular Croix de Fer and Equilibrium ranges look great again this year!

The largest bicycle manafacturer in the world. Great models and a lot of 'bike for your buck'.

The range of Defy and Avail road bikes for men and women have always been fantastic starting points for those looking to take their first steps into the world of road cycling.

Saracen bicycles are a new addition to the Apex range this year. We've chosen from their range of entry level mountain and cross terrain bikes.

The TuffTrax series is a great starting point for any young mountain bikers out there!

Brompton are quite simply the leaders in folding bikes! Not only do they fold cleverly into a nice neat cube, but they also ride extremely well as a proper bike! No compromises of having one without the other.
