Nicholson’s Cycles is an independent, family-owned retail cycle shop located in Dundee, Scotland.
The original business was opened in 1949 by Jack and Irene Nicholson. Jack was a member of the Dundee Thistle Cycling Club and a good amateur rider.
The site of the original shop was No. 15 Arbroath Road, Dundee. The shop was a magnet for all level of cyclists during the 1950s and 1960s. Brands such as The Flying Scot, Holdsworth, Bob Jackson, Falcon, and Raleigh were much sought-after bikes.
Into the 1970s, the business relocated to the current site at No. 2 Forfar Road, Dundee. Jack and Irene retired.
The Nicholson name continued to flourish throughout the 1980s under the guidance of Jack’s son-in-law Bryn Williams and Jack’s daughter Margaret.
The brand names have changed, but the family tradition continues. As the shop moves into its 70th year of trading, Bryn and Margaret have made way for their son-in-law Colin. Colin is ably assisted by Mark, over 30 years’ service, Billy, 28 years’ service. Our new members are Tracy (sales) and Pawel our new junior Tech.
The latest team member is Tracy who assists in the sales department.
Our technicians are Cytec trained to level 2 & 3. We are a Shimano Service Centre which means that you can be confident that your bike is correctly serviced, set up and safe to ride. We are E-Bike trained and can offer advice and servicing on Shimano Steps, Bosch and Fazua motor systems.
Electric bikes (e-Bikes) have become one of our specialities. With so many people getting into cycling and choosing to commute via cycling, the popularity of the electric bike is snowballing. E-bikes are ideal for those who want to cycle but are not as fit as they used to be. E-bikes also mean that the whole family can cycle together regardless of their individual fitness levels.
The shop also stocks an excellent range of quality cycling products and clothing.
When you buy a bike at Nicholson’s, you’re not just buying a bike. You’re buying peace of mind from a business that’s truly passionate about cycling. No one in Dundee knows more or cares more about bikes. Your bike will be appropriately set up and tested before you take it away to ensure you get maximum enjoyment and many miles on your bike.
Oh, and if your bike needs a service, then we’re on hand to cover that as well.
Why not pop in and have a look around?
