Shops selling good quality bicycles are hard to find in many parts of Ireland – especially if you live away from the main cities. One option is to buy bikes online and have them delivered to your door. Some minor assembly is usually required – but it’s normaly just a matter of putting on pedals, saddles or straightening the handlebars.
Bicycle prices are usually cheaper online than in “normal” bike shops and the choices available are much better.
Delivery is sometimes free and if it isn’t it probably costs less than the price of the petrol you might use driving round to see several shops – and you won’t have to try and squeeze a bike in your boot or buy a bike carrier.
