Your Experience

When you order your bike through Vires Velo, you can expect a first-class journey from start to finish. Find your perfect position, build your ideal specification, meet our expert team and leave ready to take your cycling to new levels.

The Vires Velo Experience

We understand how important your new bike is and we have curated an optimum experience to help guide you through the journey

A typical experience day with us would involve:

  • A bike fit on our idmatch system to ascertain the optimum size and set up for your new bike
  • A test ride on one of our demo bikes, taking in a 17km loop around our Centre, giving you an opportunity to get a feel for the bike at your own pace
  • Sit down with our expert team to discuss your ideal build spec, choose your groupset, gear ratios, wheels as well as any custom options and upgrades
  • Fresh coffee is readily available throughout your visit
  • You will have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you wish and will leave with your customised specification and delivery date for your new bike

Based on current stock levels, we are able to turn new build around very quickly and can even facilitate a bike fit and delivery service in one day.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT BIKE

Our experts will be happy to talk you through our range of bikes and componentry to determine the optimum bike for you and your riding goals. This can be done in person in our showroom or virtually by booking an online appointment at a time convenient to you to chat.

We have a fleet of bikes that can be test ridden from our Experience Centre in Norfolk if you wish to experience that unique feeling of riding a Factor. Test rides must be booked in advance. Contact our team to organise your test ride now.

Choosing the right specification

Every bike built at Vires Velo can be tailored to you.

We don’t do a stock build. We work with each customer to choose the most suitable groupset, gearing and components to help you achieve your riding goals on your new bike. Use our online bike builder to see the current options available, delivery timeline and receive a quotation. Our build team will work with you closely to refine your choices once your order is confirmed.

Build Your Bike

Building your bike

Your new bike will be assembled by hand in our Experience Centre in Norfolk. If you visit us, you can meet the mechanics who will build your bike and see our workshop and the dream builds in progress.

Our build team will work with your chosen components to create a bike as unique as you. They will work with you and use the data from your bike fit to refine your set-up.

Once built your bike is handed over to our fitting team who will make the final adjustments and dial in your fit.

Before any bike leaves our Experience Centre it is put through a rigorous quality control check to make sure the bike and components are working in perfect harmony ready for your maiden voyage.
