What We Sell
At Blazing Saddles our main objective is to help you find the right bike for your needs. We’re all keen riders in one discipline or more and with many years of experience under our belts of riding the wrong bikes as well as the right ones, we know how important it is that you get a bike which suits you and your riding.
We’ve chosen to stock the brands that we do because we feel they offer you the best possible choice, whether you’re a road rider, commuter or mountain biker (or even a mix of all three!)
Brands We Sell
Orange Mountain Bikes are amongst a rare breed of British designed products, and have been fabricated in their factory near Halifax since 1988. The O-range started out as line of bikes designed to suit all riders and over time Orange Bikes have produced some of the most revered and renowned bicycles in the world; including the Clockwork, the Five, 224 (now the 322), Patriot and the recent 29er, the Gyro. Riders like Steve Peat, Greg Minnaar, Tracey Hannah and Joe Barnes have all raced and won on-board the 224, which is also the most successful privateer downhill race bike of all time. Our very own Hebden Bridge Up The Buttress race was won by two riders on Orange bikes…now there’s a recommendation!
