Welcome to our website, bikes4families.co.uk. We are an independent cycle shop which has been trading for over 80 years in Farnborough, Hampshire called Silvester Brothers. We have released our website bikes4families.co.uk to offer you our quality cycles and components. We stock bikes for all ages from children’s, BMX, mountain bikes and traditional hybrid bicycles. We also stock a wide selection of parts and accessories for bicycles.
We stock bikes from recognised makes such as: Raleigh, Diamondback, Triumph, Bumper and Barrocuda and our range of parts and accessories includes bike repair stands, bike turbo trainers, car racks by Avenir, Schwalbe tyres, child carriers, helmets and pumps to list but a few.
Most of the bikes on our online store can be delivered to your door by the next working day using TNT and Parcelforce, and we accept all major credit and debit cards. If you’re finding it hard to make a decision on what bike to choose we will be happy to help; just send us an e-mail by clicking on the ‘contact us’ tab at the top of the page.
Choosing your cycle
Children’s bikes: These come in 12”, 14”, 16”, 18” 20” and 24” wheel sizes. Please see our manufacturers recommended list of inside leg measurements.
BMX: We stock the Diamondback and Burner range with alloy, steel or cr-moly frames. 48 spoke wheels and pegs are included on some of the models; see our selection for specification.
Mountain Bikes: We stock Raleigh, Diamondback and Triumph. They mainly come with aluminium frames, but some models come with steel frames. Most are fitted with front suspension forks, and some models have rear suspension, or seat-post suspension. Brakes are V-type or disc, and they come with alloy wheels. Gears fitted are 6, 18, 21, 24 and 27 speed.
Hybrid cycles: We stock the Raleigh Pioneer and Urban range. Hybrid bikes have larger wheels than a mountain bike and narrower tyres. The majority come with alloy frames; they are ideally suited for road use and commuting. Traditional hybrid bikes are supplied with mudguards, carrier and a prop-stand.
