My daughter loves it!

She loves it, so comfortavle and basket is super, she says there could be a few more gears and the chain guard often hits against the hub/bike

Hi there. Delighted to hear she loves the bike! Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. Rory

Hi Rory,
Lovely to hear from you.

I was fond of Martello while I had her and recognise that I bought her without prior planning on a complete whim, though I recognised fairly quickly that she was a bike completely ill-suited to my needs. My 8km daily commute to work quickly involved tube and tyre replacements, along with significant maintenance.
The nuts, especially on the handlebars, came loose quite quickly (even though the threads weren't worn), something which, asides from the inconvenience, was actually quite dangerous. As the chain was prone to falling off - despite being oiled - I removed the chainguard as it was so difficult to get the chain on once it off. This bike is not definitely not designed for uphill cycles - it's very heavy and the peddles are particularly slippy in the rain.

I would describe the Martello as a bike designed for 5-10 minute cycles, ideal, as she is quite solid, for carrying some grocery shopping.
She is a pretty bike, and indeed got a lot of attention on this basis.

In retrospect, I would much rather have spent more money on a lighter, older Dutch-style bike with more endurance. I definitely wouldn't buy a steel bike again.
Being interested in sustainability etc, I regret the fact that she is not easily repairable and will probably be unusable within some time. I have subsequently been given a new bike and have yet to find a new owner for Martello.

Well done on creating your own branded bike - no easy feat, I'm sure! The design, aesthetically is really good, however I would encourage you to consider designing more sustainable bikes, which you could sell at a higher price - I believe the Bike to Work scheme would play in your favour here. Also, there are far better quality second hand bikes available cheaper or at a similiar price to Martello, and I think be

more and more people are interested in reusing, upcycling etc.
All the best in the future.

Hi there. Thanks very much for your detailed review. We do aim to make the bikes as sustainable as possible for the price point offered. We appreciate the feedback and are always expanding our Martello range, so will be sure to look into other options for customers! Rory

Martello Sutton

Myself and my sister bought a Martello Bicycle from your shop for our mother for her birthday. She was absolutely thrilled with her bike. It's a very well made sturdy practical yet very retro design. She gets complemented every where she goes on it. We were delighted to find out that The Martello range of bikes are an Irish brand made by BikesorBicyles.com. That makes it even more special. The service we received in the shop on Clambrasil Street was excellent and the after sales service was was also amazing. They are a lovely bunch of lads who know their stuff. The range of bikes is very competitively priced and I would highly recommend them if you are in the market for a new bicycle. My mother returned to the shop and purchased accessories for her bike and the lads were only to happy to advise her on the best options for her Martello. I wish them all the continued success they deserve and I'm sure I will be a returning customer.

Hi Antoinette. Thanks so much for such a detailed and positive review. We really appreciate it. If you ever pop in again we'll be sure to look after you! Thanks, Rory
