New Stif Store Opens This Weekend

by Chipps 7

To celebrate the relocation of Stif Cyles to its new home in Summerbridge, (nr Harrogate) North Yorkshire we are holding a grand opening event on Saturday the 6th of February.

Yep, I'll take it. Don't bother to wrap it...

Representatives from all the major brands will be on hand to talk through their products and show their brand new 2010 ranges – including Pace, Orange, Santa Cruz, Yeti, Scott, Niner, Mojo, Hope, Fox and SIS.

Over 20 demo bikes will be available, along with guided rides throughout the day.

2009 UCI DH World MTB Champ Steve Peat will also be there throughout the day – so come along to congratulate him!

After 25 years of trading in Headingley, Leeds – Stif, originally started as a windsurfing shop, recently moved up to a brand new site in Nidderdale right on some of the best natural riding in the north of England as well as being only a 10 minute drive from the trails at Stainburn forest.

A trend leader in many areas, Stif was the original importer for many of the first high end US custom brands – the likes of Paul Components, Grafton, Camelbak, Nuke Proof (original!) and of course Santa Cruz were all seen first in Stif’s shop

Carrying on this tradition the new showroom has allowed Stif to expand both its range of bikes and clothing. They now carry an extensive range of Endura and Swobo including the largest Fox clothing display in the UK – as well as bikes from Genesis, NS Bikes and Go Cycle including commuter and electric bikes.

Hot food, coffee and cake will also be available.

Further schedules for the day including riding times and locations will be put up on the Stif web site over the next week so please check back for details.

All this plus special offers, give-aways and generally a good time – look forward to seeing you there!

  1. Please come back to headingley. Thanks

  2. I agree – Stif was about the only decent thing left in Headingley (apart from the hot student girls!).

  3. The move to Summerbridge is saving me a lot of money – no more lunchtime trips and associated impulse purchasing.

  4. IanMmmmm – have to go to one of those millions of pubs instead…!

  5. Looks like every other boring bike shop inside. Headingly ooooooozed character! Made me want to buy stuff as I wandered around banging my head into frames dangling from the ceiling!

  6. i miss em too.

    still the concept seems cool up there, might have to have a ride out one day….
