About Us

Biketart is an online and retail bike shop based in Canterbury, Kent. We focus on mountain bikes and road bikes, stocking brands including Santa Cruz, Evil, Genesis, Saracen, Banshee, Ridley and more. 

Formed in 2008 we have gained a reputation for stocking high-end MTB bikes, components, accessories and clothing and for our fast delivery. We are an independent rider-owned company. Our online store is complemented with a large showroom and an additional retail store in the centre of Canterbury. We offer a full range of bike servicing and repairs at both our locations in Kent.

 

Company History

The Biketart story all began with Biketape, a clear protective tape used to protect bikes from chips and scratches. Frustrated with damage to his bikes, Adam set out to find the best quality tape possible and Biketape was born over 10 years ago. Continuing the theme of tarting up bikes, new products were then launched including titanium bolts. With a growing product collection Biketart was born in the summer of 2008.

We kept a pretty exclusive selection of brands, cherry-picking the quality products that really stood out. At the beginning it was possible to take all the orders to our local sorting office by bike! With several thousand orders going out a week we now have several Royal Mail and courier collections each day to cope.

With a growing business we moved to larger warehouse premises in 2010 to be able to stock more products and process orders more efficiently. We opened our showroom there and took on leading bike brands such as Santa Cruz. In 2014 we opened a second retail-specific store in the centre of Canterbury which has more focus on commuting.
