With industrial action on rail services planned for next week, now’s the perfect time to switch a different kind of tube. At Pearson, we’re well-stocked to get you rolling on two wheels, the ideal way to get across – even out of – town. 

Here are our suggestions to help make your life easier this summer.

Take Flat Iron, a versatile all rounder with a commanding riding position, courtesy of a double-butted, tig-welded chromoly frame for strength on city streets.

Adaptable to receive mudguards, rear pannier rack and clearance for broad tyres to combat the city roads, this bike now in its third iteration is a popular choice of the commuter.


Alternatively, Pearson’s Allmodcons will help you navigate the metropolis and the hills beyond. Minimum weight, maximum comfort, this rack-ready bike doubles as a perfect fast tourer, thanks to triple-butted aluminium and excellent vibration-dampening with the help of a carbon fork. 


In the event your train does run, or you have to run for your train, Pearson has expanded its range of Brompton folding bikes. Available in two, three, or six-speed and with various saddle, bar and luggage options, these practical pedallers represent superlative British engineering. 

Payment plans available please contact us for any help and advice when it comes to choosing the best solution for you.
