"I bought my Merida Cyclocross 3 from Loch Leven Cycles towards the end of last year. Very very nice bike, miles better than the Boardman Team Cx it replaced. I am very glad I chose to go to John when I returned the Boardman because of a serious fault it developed after only a week of use. The Merida is far more reliable, lighter, much more comfortable and just a better bike all round. In terms of service John is second to none, and the best value for money of any of the bike shops I've used in the past. We've got a great local bike shop in Kinross long may it continue."

5 stars:
"Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable with some of the best customer service I have ever come across. Ran by a very skilled bike mechanic with clearly years of experience, who will not just go out of his way to keep customers leaving with a smile on there face but might even inadvertently teach you a thing or two. The shop itself is well stocked, well laid out and best of all very reasonably priced. 5 stars all day long and I will undoubtedly be shopping there regularly."

"Highly recommend this friendly, supportive service..."


I bought a Merida One-Forty 7.700 (2015) from Loch Leven Cycles. I cannot fault the bike, I've ridden a combination of hardtails and full sus bikes from lots of different brands over the years, and this bike is by far the best mountain bike I've ever had. It climbs beautifully, it takes difficult technical sections brilliantly. It's nimble and speedy on downhill sections (I've beaten every single PR I've had on Strava with this bike) It's the most comfortable bike I own. I can spend hours in the saddle and it's still as comfortable at the end of the ride as it was at the start. Merida bikes deserve a lot more recognition. The service from Loch Leven Cycles is second to none, full support for my bike, and a longstanding interest in how it is running. They look after the bike, and customer better than any shop I have used in the past. Any work I've had done on my other bikes has been excellent, and the price undercuts any other bike shop I've used.

"Excellent bike shop, well equipped and great service. Always worth a visit."

"Amazing stock and expert advice on bikes of all sorts! Great business ethics. You won't get better service anywhere."

"Was helped out by a lovely member of staff who was happy to fit us with our bikes and helmets and offer lots of information on the best cycle routes. Was even kind enough to let us swap our bikes the next morning to do some mountain biking."

"the new shop is a huge step up from the last one. Now a bigger selection of bikes and much more display space. same expert friendly advice as before."

"Friendly local expertise. I have popped in a couple of times rather than driving to Perth or Dunfermline to Halfords (where you have to book a week in advance to get a service) and the problems have been resolved on the spot. I agree with Zarbio, just what we need in the area."

"If you live in Kinross or are passing through Kinross and need bike advice, bike repairs, spare parts, a new bike or a second hand bike this shop is always worth a visit. Personal service and a willingness to assist are the hallmarks of this business"
