- New bike shop opening in Sth Manchester
Bikehaus are opening up in Gatley, Sth Manchester at the end of April by the looks of it.
Currently still fitting out the shop and the website isn’t up despite the sticker on the shop window advertising it. They are on Twitter and Facebook though.
Looks like it’ll be an expensive roadie shop from what I can work out.Posted 5 years agoD0NKSubscriber
with ‘haus’ in the title I can’t see it being a lbs more of a spendy lifestyle shop run by people who have moved up from London?
with mtbs starting at £265 possibly not
more decathlon than thebikerooms

Thanks for some of the positive comments! I’ll brew up for you Hora, although you can bring the biscuits as way of apology.
I’ll address a few of the naysayers points:
It’s not going to be an expensive roadie shop, it will be a nice shop with road bikes, kids bikes, hybrids etc. MTBs probably not so much as Andy at NWMTB is only round the corner. That’s not to say we won’t in the future. We’ve been offered Rocky Mountain but aren’t sure that we are ready for it yet.
Website isn’t up but it is almost done. It’s taken a back seat at my friend who I own the shop with has been racing in Mexico. This has meant that all of the renovation and day to day stuff has fallen to me.
I’m not from London. I’m from Fallowfield. I live in Sale now though so it’s not too bad. Quite a few of you know me and have ridden with me. Hora, Bunnyhop, Solarpowered, NBT, Portlyone etc
We aren’t selling kitchen units and we are definitely not Dave Hinde.
AlexSimon – You don’t like the font? You don’t have to. I like it. I like green too. You don’t have to like green though. We’re all different, that’s what makes it fun.
No decaff mochas. Or selling of coffee. Coffee Fix already do that really well. You should go there, we do.
We aren’t connected to Coffee Fix with anything other than a love of their coffee. Gareth and Claira are ace though. They do attract GB riders but also a lot of other cyclists too. That’s got to be a good thing for us?!
Any other questions or criticisms fire away.Posted 5 years ago

Yep – and you’d genuinely go out of your way for someone. So from now on I’m going to do alternate rides that take in Gatley/coffee shop and your place for stuff.Posted 5 years agocyclepathologistMember
Wow! That’s a spectacular example of sycophancy right above!
Best wishes for the new shop. There used to be a bike / concept shop just up the road from you in Cheadle. It didn’t do so well. I keep thinking it was called Sigma but that could be because they were my old bike shop down south.Posted 5 years ago
Good luck then Andy. I work in the building opposite so had been wondering what the renovations were going to produce. Apologies for the conclusions drawn…but hey, think of the thread as free advertising!
There’s a few cycle commuters and bikers in the office. We do have a bike to work scheme but I don’t think we’ve had many up-takers so far and can’t see many more.Posted 5 years agosolarpoweredMember
Andy! The shop looks amaaaazing! I’m so so pleased for you and we really will pop in as soon as possible to have a look around!Posted 5 years ago
I’ll never forget you telling me when I started to ride….” Trust your bike, it can do more than you think it can!”…. I’ve never forgotten that & I’m sure you’ll teach more like me – it gave me a Huuuge amount of confidence!
I wish you all the best…. You deserve to go far in my book 😀murthybruitMember
This thread has really made me chuckle, I’m gutted I didn’t discover it last week, I would have loved to have made it to the opening and have another blast on the rollers.
I drop my children with my folks in Gatley on Mondays and commute from there, but haven’t done for the last six weeks, so yesterday was the first time I noticed the new shop, hence Googling the name and landing here!
All the best of luck with it, I personally like the font and colour scheme! I also didn’t now about the coffee shop, so this thread has been a bit of a revelation for me! Next time I need something I’ll drop in, I have linked your site from my website.
As it happens, I grew up in Gatley, and if my memory serves me correctly, a bike shop once resided in exactly the same premises coincidentally.
Also nice to see another Martyn on here!!Posted 5 years ago
