Bikes from the Iron Horse Bicycle Company USA are now available via Pearce Cycles of Ludlow, famous for its support for Midlands and National MTB events, a race team and the building of downhill tracks in Shropshire. Iron Horse sales manager Thomas Trentanove was in the UK a fortnight ago and is hoping to confirm a UK distribution deal soon. It won't be with Thundersport of Stourbridge.

Pearce Cycles to retail Iron Horse bikes; UK distributor to be appointed soon

The Pearce Cycles race team will ride Iron Horse bikes and become the Ironhorse/Pearce Cycles/Fox Racing team.

Iron Horse’s sales manager Thomas Trentanove said:

"Iron Horse Bicycle Company USA is extremely proud to have Pearce Cycles retailing our bicycles. Pearce Cycles’ rich racing history and dedication to the sport of cycling is second to none and is a prefect fit for Iron Horse Bicycles.

"With the help of shops like Pearce Cycles, Iron Horse Bicycles intends to bring some of the finest bikes at affordable prices to the United Kingdom. We are currently in negotiations with a few prominent UK bicycle distributors and hope to be able to announce total availability of Iron Horse Bikes in the UK in the very near future."
