Carraro and Coluer also on board as retailer distributor ramps up 2012 push

Cycling Components adds Mendiz bike brand to catalogue

Cycling Components has ramped up its business for 2012 with the exclusive addition of Mendiz Bicycles, Carraro and Coluer.

Initially the firm will be an exclusive dealer for each of the brands, though owner David Darby told BikeBiz: "I’d be happy to hear from retailers interested in carrying the brands, it is part of our long-term plan to open the brand up to the UK trade."

Having established a strong domestic business, Spanish brand Mendiz are now branching further afield, with the UK a key territory. The range to be available in the UK, including top end Di2 specced carbon builds, is viewable here.

Darby added: "We also have two other brands on board; Coluer of Portugal and Carraro of Italy. Coluer are again, new to the UK and further details of this range will be available early February 2012. Carraro have previously been in the UK, but Cycling Components is now the exclusive UK dealer. We intend to roll with Carraro around January 2012."
