SWIFTCARBON OFFICIAL DEALERS
Creating a network of dealers is no easy task. While it’s fairly straightforward opening accounts and moving boxes, forming bonds and building relations are what maintain momentum – and for us it’s all about the long game. People trust people, and buy from people – that’s what we remind ourselves as we approach all new prospective. When there’s a connection, that’s the first sign that our relationship, both personal and business, will be a success. Here is a list of bike shops that we trust implicitly, to take the greatest of care with our bikes as well as they do with their customers.
Formerly named Stewart Wilson Cycles, Velocity 44 Ltd is one of Scotland longest running cycle stores, established in 1977.

Add up all their years in the business and you have over 60 years of experience, and like all good bike shops, it’s run and owned by cyclists for cyclists.

SWIFTCARBON PARTNER SHOPS
We all love bike shops. We also like the internet and using it to buy cycling stuff. With these two facts, we felt a need to develop what we today call our Partner Shop Program - proof that your local bike shop and ecommerce can be friends. It is next-generation retail - embracing the local bike shop as an essential part of the cycling community as a ‘safe place’ for advice, servicing, fitting, meeting like-minded people, gawking at the latest trick stuff and for good vibes. Our partner sho program combines online value and efficiency with the priceless face-to-face experience at your local bike shop. Our Partner Shops help you select the right SwiftCarbon model, pick the correct size, order it and set it all up when it arrives. Best of all there is no extra fee for the customer, (over what you’d normally pay online). A win-win!
