Easter Friday 29th March and Easter Monday 1st April are both bank holidays in the UK and as Royal Mail is closed there are no collections or deliveries on these days. VeloSolo will be open as normal however, any orders placed after 1.30 pm on Thursday 28th March will not be shipped until Tuesday 2nd April.
Royal Mail has now resumed business collections today and all orders from yesterday and today will enter the mail system this evening. Inevitably there will be delays due to the backlog but we hope these will be minimal.
UPDATE: 12pm: We regret to inform our customers that due to the severe weather in the SE of the UK and subsequent impact on road, rail and air transport, we have just been informed by Royal Mail and Parcelforce that no regional collections or deliveries will be taking place in this area today. Consequently no mail will enter the system until tomorrow (Wednesday) evening at the earliest. We are hopeful that the situation will improve tomorrow and we will post further updates here.
9am: Once again due to heavy snow across the UK this week and forecast for the coming days we are unfortunately expecting significant delays to postal deliveries. We will continue to ensure all orders get to the local postal sorting office daily however Royal Mail's national distribution and collection is severely affected by the current heavy snow. In addition a large percentage of UK flights both national and international are likely to be cancelled. We apologise for the inconvenience beyond our control but we must advise that while this situation continues severe delays will be possible to current orders, both UK and international.

Back in stock this week are Miche brakes and chains. Unfortunately due to changes with MKS distribution in Japan more MKS products have been discontinued for the foreseeable future but we have secured some MKS Road pedals with black cages as well as the regular polished.
We have just had a delivery of our first batch of silver anodized road/track chainrings - now in stock in 130mm and 144mm BCD and 44t, 46t, 47t and 48t.
Now in stock are a limited number of warehouse find NOS Royce and Sugino track chainrings, also back in stock are VeloSolo chainrings in black anodized all sizes including the large logo type. Andel SS cogs are all available again as are Kalin stems and Tange Passage satin headsets. New in are Zenith 'Gran Compe' stems in a 60mm length.
Unfortunately we regret we will be discontinuing our chainrings in the polished option. Over the years it has grown increasingly difficult to obtain a consistent and high quality polishing service at an economically viable cost. The latest batch in production has been rejected following polishing and therfore the existing stock will be the last we have available.
To replace the polished chainrings and to run alongside black and gold anodized we will be introducing a bright silver anodized option in the coming weeks.
A large delivery from Token has just arrived; back in stock are polished pedals, track lockrings, singlespeed lockrings and chainrings. Also new in this week is Exus Pro blue grease. Expected very soon is a shipment of NOS 1980's Royce chainrings.
Nothing to do with bikes but worth a shout to our many UK and EU customers - we are looking to purchase a classic French Football Table. Ideally a Bonzini B90 or B60, the lesser known 3 bar Eurobut would be even better. We are also interested in a Rene Pierre or Sulpie too. Willing to travel across London, SE England and across to Northern France and Belgium. If anyone can help please get in touch!
