Born in the Torthorwald hills near Dumfries but refined on the roads surrounding Glasgow, Torvelo offers appointment based bicycle mechanical support in Glasgow’s west end.
Having moved to new premises in April 2019, Torvelo Bike Repair is Glasgow’s high end bicycle outfitter. Next level custom builds, repairs and servicing coupled with all the parts and accessories any rouleur, puncheur or grimpeur could ask for. We are a hub for Moriarty bikes and have hooked up with Orbis Lab as bike fit partner to offer the most comprehensive extended bike build and servicing process.
In 2019 Torvelo Bike Repair became title sponsor of Torvelo Racing was. A club at heart but a team in mind, Torvelo Racing was founded to provide a new platform to give the strong, motivated, hard-working amateur bike racing dreamers and outliers, who maybe don’t see a long-term future in the sport, some of the support, tools, teamwork and ultimately the incentive they need to hang around a little bit longer.
Torvelo Bike Repair is Cytech and Velotech qualified. Available for servicing, repairs, custom builds and consultations.
