We only stock the biggest brand names in triathlon bikes. If you're new to triathlon or looking to upgrade to a more competitive bike, we offer higher end bicycles at entry level prices.
Many of our triathlon bikes are ex demo models that have never been ridden. We also stock the best preloved triathlon bikes from professional athletes; all our bicycles are quality checked and serviced before being made available to purchase and all come with a 3 month warranty.
We offer 48 hour delivery anywhere in the UK for a fixed price of £35 or alternatively you can collect your bike from our York based Triathlon Bikes workshop.
We also deliver internationally and export bikes to Japan, South East Asia, USA, South America, all across Europe and the Middle East. So please send us your international postcode and we will give you a specific shipping cost and timeframe.
All our bikes are fully built, checked, tuned and tested by our mechanics and then securely packaged, ready for delivery. All you have to do is follow a few simple steps which can be found on our Assembly page.
We pride ourselves on our customer service and minimal turnaround times, from regular gear and brake services to comprehensive strip down, repair and rebuild, we offer a cycle service to suit you. Choose from our service packages or contact us for any specific work that your bike requires. More information can be found on our Servicing page.
"I'm just getting into triathlon and didn't really know where to start, big thanks to the guys at Triathlon Bikes who helped me source a fantastic Cervelo bike for a fraction of the price I was going to pay. Also sorted me out with a wetsuit. Top service and great coffee as well"

Inspired by the Ironman Kona World Championships, our amazing in house bistro serves up the very best in specialist coffee, delicious cakes, healthy smoothy bowls and hearty bagels. Ideal for any pre or post ride fuelling, our menu is over 50% vegan devoted. Whether you are just popping in to have a browse, getting your bike serviced, shopping for that new ride or getting some quiet time for study or even just to get away from it all. We invite you to relax and enjoy our chilled out environment at Kona Coffee.
Originally founded by triathlete couple, Simon & Helena, who were both desperate for the perfect start to their training, as well as the challenges that everyday working life throws at us, True Start was born; offering ethical, vibrant, feel good coffee for whenever you need a positive lift, without the caffeine crash. Kona Coffee are proud to partner with True Start to serve the very best, award winning coffee that York has to offer. If the bikes aren't worth the trip, then the coffee certainly is!
We are located at the top end of Walmgate in the centre of York. Just a 10 minute stroll from York train station. We have ample bike stands outside the shop and provide complementary bike locks for our customers.
So feel free to visit during normal business hours to view any of our current stock, ensure you have the correct fit and take our bikes out for a test ride.
Please drop us a line or give us a call before your visit or to book your bike in for a service!
"I spoke to one of the mechanics on the phone who gave me a detailed explanation about some of the bikes I was interested in, I then drove up from London the next day to have a bike fitting and test rode a few bikes. Well worth the 7 hour round trip as I left with my dream bike. Amazing service!"
