Pedalsport becomes Giant Halifax – FAQ’s

In June 2017 the Pedalsport will become Giant Halifax. We will be completely refurbishing our shop and showrooms, before emerging as a Giant/Liv store. Here are a few FAQ’s to help our customers through the change:

Q: Will the shop be closing? And when?
A: Yes, over a 17 day period beginning on 5 June (last day of trading Sat June 3) and ending when we re-open on Thursday 22 June 2017, the shop will be temporarily closed for the final refurbishment to be completed.

Q: What if I need some work doing on my bike whilst you are closed?
A: We are going to keep our basement workshop open during the entire refurbishment period, so if you need some work doing on your bike, we can still help. However, work will only be accepted on a pre-booked basis. Please call us on 01422 361 460 to book your bike in with us and to arrange dropping it off.

Q: What brands will be available after you re-open
A: We will be come almost exclusively a Giant and Liv store. These brands have a huge range of bikes and e-bikes for all types of cyclists and we will have access to both the bikes and the clothing/accessory rnage of these brands

Q: What will happen to your other services, like the workshop and bike-fit?
A: These will continue after the refurbishment. We will offer all the main services, including bike repair and servicing.

A: The good news is that there are no staffing changes – only the look of the shop and the brands of products will change.

Q: Will I still be able to bring my Mavic wheels in to be serviced/repaired?
A: Yes, we will continue to repair and service all brands of bikes.



Giant Toughroad SLR2

The new Toughroad from Giant is hard to define using traditional bike categories. It’s essentially a fully rigid mountain bike with lots of carrying points/potential. It’s unofficially an “Adventure bike” aimed at the outdoor folk who will be in the Lake District one weekend, on a city break the next and tootling across a beach the next. It can handle mountain bike terrain but also a long road-based touring style adventure. Whatever the category, it’s a great all-rounder with the capacity to handle almost any form of riding.

Here’s what Giant say about it:

“From ripping fast gravel road riding to long-distance tours, ToughRoad SLR is all about big adventures on almost any terrain. Built on a superlight ALUXX SLR frame and fast-rolling 700c wheels, it has an agile chassis and tough, trail-worthy features. The D-Fuse seatpost adds compliance and the bike is fitted with wide tyres to smooth out rough terrain.”

Fork: Composite, ALUXX OverDrive Steerer
Drivetrain: Shimano Acera 27 speed
Brakes: Shimano M315 hydraulic disc brakes, 160mm rotors
Wheels: Giant S-X2 Disc Wheelset

New: Giant Fathom 2

The all new Fathom 2 from Giant blends the efficient ride quality of a classic hardtail with the can-do capabilities of an all-around trail bike. It’s built around a lightweight ALUXX SL aluminium frame that’s designed specifically for 27.5 wheels. The frame features more forgiving geometry, including a 67-degree head angle designed for a 120mm suspension fork – so it’s well-suited to modern mountain bike trails and trail centres. The Fathom series also offers a rugged component selection, giving aspiring trail riders the ability to climb technical terrain with less effort and have more fun on the descents.
