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!

    Love this quote from Albert!! If these dark nights and cold days are making that settee too appealing, why not hire a bike from us. If a lack of apparel or appropriate lighting is the excuse then pop in to see us as yet more stock has arrived (and is arriving) this week! #endura #lezyne

    We now have a selection of CRUD products in stock, designed, manufactured and tested here in the UK (and even more locally than you may think) so we know these work well....!

    Big thanks to us @drsprockets please for this warm sunny weather; it's because we received our ENDURA 2018 winter gloves etc yesterday 🙄 So not only do we have some existing summer accessories still in stock, we now have a great 2018 winter selection in too (because it's bound to turn chilly soon!) Enjoy your weekend 🚴‍♀️🚴☀️

    Not everyone stays in love with their bike 🙁, that’s why we are slowly starting to stock second hand bikes, we like to think of them as ‘pre-loved’!

    Great turnout and weather today for Round Four of the CXNE hosted by Whitby Wheelers CC, with a podium finish for local riders Jasmine Kent and Will Brown and great effort from you 'older boys in the vets'!! Good job the mechanics were on hand post race to attend to the squashed worm issue covering the bike!!
