On a scale of one to ten, sitting in traffic is approximately zero fun. And no amount of great music or embarrassingly loud singing can change that. No, there’s only one fix for this kind of daily commuting boredom. And it comes with a saddle. (Hint: it’s not a horse. They require way too much food.)
Introducing the Strada: the urban cyclist’s dream bike.
Whether it’s livening up your daily commute or taking a slow ride along the river, the Strada is your key to conquering the urban jungle. With a fast, agile frame and an ultra-sporty riding position, this lightweight bike lets you slip through traffic with ease – no gridlock necessary. The 650b wheels have been painstakingly selected for their comfort and cushioning, giving you a ride so smooth you’ll barely be able to believe it. And when you’re ready to swap the tarmac for the trail, the 47c-wide tyres are perfect for tackling looser ground, with full mudguards to keep you clean and dry while you’re off-roading.
The 21-speed Shimano gear system helps you maximise your pedal power – perfect for defeating those lung-busting hills. And when it’s time to race back down them, the Strada’s powerful V-brakes give you plenty of stopping power. This exquisite design is topped off with a Selle Royal Essenza saddle, offering exceptional comfort on longer rides.
It’s time to take back the city. It’s time for the Strada.
Full Fitted Mudguards
Because the British weather is less than predictable, full length mudguards protect you no matter what the weather throws your way.
Stylish Tan Wall 650B Tyres
Roll over obstacles in style with the 47c-wide tan wall tyres, perfect for tackling city streets or looser ground.
Smooth Weld Frame Design
Smooth welds give the Strada a sleek premium finish to complete the stylish look of the Strada range.

Customer Reviews of Les's Cycles
Les’s Cycles has to be the best cycle shop in Essex. All the staff are friendly and helpful.
A small store from the outside but an Aladdin’s cave on the inside.
Not at all pushy like big chains.
Will not be going anywhere else from now on
Thank you Les’s CyclesGoogle Reviews
Just got my e bike sorted by Les Cycles. They were brilliant. My bike is under warranty and the manufacturer wasn’t very helpful at all. Despite this Les Cycles persisted and managed to eventually get the part needed. They fixed it all up and now I’m happily cycling again. Would definitely recommend them. The after care they give is truly first class.Google Reviews
The best bike shop by far.
Order a bike late on a Saturday (11:30pm) and by 11am the next day it was built and ready for me to collect.
The staff were more than happy to spend time explaining all about my new ebike, never had one so I had alot of questions.
Very knowledgeable and helpful.Google Reviews
