How it all started...

It all started in Arnhem (The Netherlands) in 1938. Those who do not know Arnhem are perhaps familiar with Operation Market Garden(WWII), which took place in our backyard. We were your typical local bike shop at that time. Mantel was founded by Dick Mantel, the grandfather of our current CEO.

We opened up a second store in a small village called Elst In the 80s, and have grown rapidly ever since. With the upcoming internet we became one of the first Dutch web-shops in bicycle parts.


In 2013 we have opened the doors of our new store in Arnhem. With 5000 m2 of store space and our unique 'Pick & Ride' concept , we have set the benchmark for bike shops in the Netherlands. We have a 500 m2 clothing department, where we offer high-end brands such as Assos, Castelli, Sportful, Oakley and many more, and a specific Parts department, where all our highly specialized bicycle parts are displayed where you get a good idea of what we have to offer.

Last but not least our bike selection Road bikes and mountain bikes as far as the eye can see. We are the official dealer of Trek, Giant, BMC, Scott, Cube and Bulls and your typical Dutch brands like Gazelle, Batavus, Sparta and Cortina.

International Growth

Since 2014 our web-shop expanded into more countries. At this moment we are not only selling in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, but also in Belgium, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Denmark and many more countries. As cyclist ourselves who sell to other cyclist our principles are simple. Besides fast shipping, great prices and no fuss during your ordering process, we believe in great service and advice.

Why us?

Fast shipping

We like transparency in our shipping methods. We are not the company that tells you: ‘your parcel will be shipped today’, but we tell you: ‘your parcel will arrive on Friday'. Of course you can expect your parcel to arrive the latest on Friday.

In stock means it is in our own warehouse

Our own warehouse in Arnhem is stacked with cycling products. Since we cannot rely on our suppliers stock and their speed of delivery we stock everything ourselves. That is why we are able to ship fast. So you can get out riding as soon as possible.
