Try before you Buy

Today's market place for a pair of road wheels is very confusing, we sell Bontrager, Mavic, Easton, Zipp, Shimano, to name a few.

We are delighted to offer our customers a chance to 'try before you buy ' on selecting a new pair of road wheels.
Bontrager have several platforms of wheel to suit various types or rider, conditions and price level, they are the latest off the production line, so as such are right up there with research and development and latest components required to make wheels fast, comfortable and true.

Bike Chain Ricci are happy to discuss your individual requirements, broadly speaking wheels fall into three categories, sport/all day riding upgrade, sportive/race, performance /race.


All we need from you is your credit card details, (you will not be charged unless you have them for longer than 2 days), along with photographic identity and we will let you ride away a pair. This service is free for two days. If you require a longer test period then we charge £75 for two weeks which, is refundable should you purchase a new set of wheels. We currently have the following wheels available to test.
