"Best in Portsmouth- The only 'proper' bike shop in Portsmouth that I am aware of, Velocity is where I go for any serious workshop jobs, like headset installation and wheel tension & truing. Very knowledgeable, enthusiastic staff."

Charity cycle ride from John O'Groats to Lands End in aid of help for Heroes
"On behalf of our team, may I thank you for providing superb support to our JOGLE ride. Your unselfish style sets the standard in the area and we really do appreciate the ends you went to on our behalf to ensure that we would be capable of maintaining our bikes en route. Fortunately we only suffered one puncture and the perfect weather ensured that bike cleaning was kept relatively simple!!

Many thanks also for the loan of the bike bar which ensured that transporting the bicycles was a safe and secure evolution; with hindsight we now recognise how vital this simple piece of kit was to our ride!

To date we have raised somewhere in the region of £5000 for H4H! Renewed thanks from a very grateful team."

Phil Burton
"Please pass on my thanks to Viner for producing a fantastic frame for me. I believe the service provided was on par with that only a pro cyclist would expect.

I requested a specific frame with non standard dimensions and to take into account my riding style statistics. What they have produced meets all those requirements at a surprising low weight and a very competitive cost.

It is extremely rigid giving an excellent response both on the climbs and in sprints and is superbly finished with a striking paint job. I have to admit I intended to use it as a training bike that would do the frame an injustice and I now look forward to using it to race with.

My complements must go to the bike build and set by Mike and Steve at Velocity Bikes, they have got the new position I was looking for spot on. Thanks again, all the best."

Richard Millard
"I recently had new Bontrager wheels fitted to my Cannondale, an upgrade which you suggested some time ago. The bike is a revelation. Much quicker uphill and down hill and the ride is better too (deeper rims?) as well as feeling a lot more secure. The new brakes are a great improvement on the standard Cannondale rubbish originally fitted.

Following your advice I also sanded off the bubbles to find some powdery aluminium underneath and I have painted this over in a blue that doesn't match at all, but does the job so perhaps a re-spray is the next treat for this bike.

One happy rider!"

Mike Fair
"After only three weeks from ordering the bike, it was now complete and ready for collection. To my joy not only did the bike look better than imagined, but it weight in at a mere 7kg which was an unexpected bonus at this price.

My first impression when riding was how the bike fitted me and my riding style, there was no need for any adjustments or fine tuning. That combined with the superb build quality, gave me complete confidence to put the bike through its paces. The Shimano Dura Ace groupset was smooth and precise and the Viner Epicus carbon frame felt stiff and competent but not twitchy, whilst still able to absorb the roads potholes.

My one criticism of the bike was that it did not excite or involve the rider, that is until I got onto the winding country roads then the bike took on a new dynamic. You could feel that the frame and components were all well matched making the bike rapidly respond to the road and your needs, acceleration and braking was immediate and reassuring making the riding experience exciting and professional.

To sum this bike has exceeded my expectations and this is testament to the time and effort put into each bike produced by Velocity Bikes. Their knowledge and experience produce bikes that not only perform well but look good too. My deepest thanks to Steve and all the Velocity Bikes, who made me, feel very welcome.

May I wish you all every success for the future. Many thanks."

"I've been able to spend some time on my bike over the weekend and this morning and I wanted to let you know how pleased I am. It is like riding a completely new bike - you have done a fantastic job.
Thanks very much"
