// THE SHOP
Martyn, Jon & Adam look after Rockets & Rascals in Poole, 6 days a week. They’ve been riding and racing bikes all their lives around the world and the local area. Our philosophy at Rockets is to use our experience - and that of our customers - to hand pick the best products for you, so everything we offer is personally tried and tested by our team and sometimes by our customers first. We value your opinion and we make it count. Our bikes and apparel are targeted at key price points so we can make your budget work for you.
From Santa Cruz to Scott, Whyte to ibis, Colnago to Cervelo, Open & Vielo too, we’ve got a bike to suit you. We can also keep the next Wiggin's or Peaty in your family happy, with Frog Bikes and all the kit to go with it (they'll be looking more pro than you). For the grown ups we have clothing from Endura and Sportful from Italy covers you for all riding conditions whilst putting in those miles out on the Road Bike. We stock only brands that we will ride, wear and use ourselves, some local and some from further afield. Take a look at our Brands page to find out more.
