Get on your bike with Nicholson’s Cycles

E-bikes are ideal for those who want to cycle but are not as fit as they used to be. E-bikes also mean that the whole family can cycle together regardless of their individual fitness levels.

The shop also stocks an excellent range of quality cycling products.

When you buy a bike at Nicholson’s, you’re not just buying a bike. You’re buying peace of mind from a business that’s truly passionate about cycling. No one in Dundee knows more or cares more about bikes. Your bike will be appropriately set up and tested before you take it away to ensure you get maximum enjoyment and many miles on your bike.

Oh, and if your bike needs a service, then they’re on hand to cover that as well.
