“We are delighted to be working with Quella Bikes, distributing a brand which brings a unique offering to the market whilst also complementing our portfolio of bikes. This partnership supports our wider strategy and the imminent opening of our new purpose-built, state-of-the-art warehouse”.

Quella Bikes is a British single-speed bike brand, established in 2012. Its values are built upon
bringing the joy of a single-speed, fixed-gear bicycle to bike lovers everywhere.
