About Mosquito Bikes
Some bike shops just exude quality and make a trip to visit them a fun experience. Mosquito Bikes on the Essex Road is one such shop.
It is a name that is synonymous with quality cycling kit. A visit to their expertly laid out store is bound to involve ogling the stunning bikes that they sell from specialist brands – many of which you are unlikely to find in other shops in the city. A list of bike brands on their website for example includes Mooks, Zullo, Demon Frameworks and Salsa, along with more common but still high quality bike manufacturers like Genesis, Look and Brompton. You can trust that the team at Mosquito only want to deal with the best bike manufacturers and provide Londoners with the best bikes on the market.
As well as stocking such a fine range of bikes, Mosquito is also an excellent place to find some of the best cycling clothing in London. They have brands including Café du Cycliste, Morvelo, Quoc Pham (excellent hand made leather cycling shoes), Swrve and Salice. All these companies are known for using top quality materials that last for a long time, are high performance and look good too. There has been a huge growth recently in the number of stylish and well made cycling clothes manufacturers. Mosquito allows the customer to actually try them on and feel the difference, rather than take a punt on a website. Access to such brands makes cycle clothing shopping a joy rather than a chore.
But it’s not just somewhere to buy stuff. They offer an excellent professional bike fitting service and also have a workshop for services and repairs. So should your custom build Zullo develop any teething problems, you know you can take it back to the people at Mosquito to have it nursed back to rude health.
