Do have any brands? They sell lots of regular brand bikes but I'm not sure they have an own brand that they might want to corrupt like you know who.

Known Wheelbase for years, it was always a highlight of trips to the Lakes. We’d walk along the Dales way from Bowness to Staveley, have a browse in the store & stock up on bits & bobs, then pop into Wilf’s cafe next door for a late lunch and then next door again to the brewery for a few beers before catching the train back!
I think they contributed a lot to the local cycling scene & the shop seemed to be a bit of a hub for MTB rides.
