Our priority is to get anyone and everyone bike riding whether through sales, repairs, hire or advice. We're not a formal, pristine, non-approachable type of business that is solely interested in making money.

  • Pre 2016

    Our Humble Beginnings

    Lance's obsession and love of riding and racing bikes has never faded since the first time he jumped on a bike. All friends generally link Lance to some form of biking whether pedal bikes or motorbikes.

    Our honeymoon was even a road trip in a tranny van around the mountains of France, Switzerland and Italy downhilling.

    Kids came along and the riding (especially racing and roadtrips) had to take a bit of a back seat.

    A bike shop is Born

    Karl (Dr. Crank) happened to mention he was thinking of selling the Whitby bike shop, after a few days of do we don't we, the timing was far from ideal for us as a family with two young boys but these opportunities don't come up that often! Excitement set in then panic, then excitement then panic......! Business heads on, sleepless nights.

    Transition to Full Service

    Shop takeover, bit off more than we could chew trying to get organised and open a week after getting the keys. Hopeful that we will continue to provide a local friendly bike shop and evolve as Doctor Sprockets Bike Shack as time goes on.

    The Future

    Still. In the saddle at the top of a black run. Heart pounding. Scared. Excited. What's next? Who knows!?! Let's go!

    Spring is here and so are our 'CUDA PERFORMANCE' kids bikes, ranking well alongside other reputable brands with all the spec but a little cheaper! We also stock the standard 'CUDA' kids bikes and the blox version makes the transition from balance bike to pedal bike a breeze.

    With 'Mothering Sunday' fast approaching, some of you may have noticed our little display of gift ideas because MUMS RIDE BIKES TOO! Do something a little different and treat your mum, wife, other half to some biking bits and bobs instead 🚴

    Now that the rain has passed and the sun is shining, we hope everyone is happy BUT we still have a window display that is in desperate need of cheering up! So, what we thought is we would use it to display a collage of photos and this is where we need your help........please can anyone and everyone email us any snaps of riding, racing, fixing or even 'wrecking' your bikes in the beautiful area we live. This may be a photo from 30 years ago or even today, a family ride out, a group shot at a much needed coffee stop........the list is endless. Email us the photo, let us know who you are, a contact number and where it is and our three favourite photos will receive a £10 voucher! (obviously the photos will be on view to the public so by sending these in you consent to them being used for our display)

    Can't believe we have been trading for nearly a month and what a month January was.......head colds and poorly kids were just what we needed when trying to get our heads round our new business venture!! Anyway, think we are slowly finding our feet, thanks for your support so far everyone and thanks for your patience!
