SLAM69 | About

Welcome to Slam69, a family run Bicycle Shop and Professional Workshop based in Gloucester, UK.

Graham Foot, his wife Sheila, Granddaughter Amelia (Millie), Creative Laura and Spanner man Luke make up the Slam69 team. Together we bring you a retail store, a workshop with over 30 years’ experience and online shop.


Our workshop can cater to all your bicycle needs from fixing a puncture to suspension servicing, from indexing your gears to custom wheel building, and everything in between.

Here at Slam we pride ourselves in providing excellent, high quality service that you can trust.

Both in store and online you will find a broad range of products. We have everything you need to maintain your bike, both on and off the trails, trustworthy kit, and of course awesome bikes!

We work with a range of brands covering all styles of riding such as BMX, Jump Bikes, Mountain Bikes, Fat Bikes, Gravel and Road Bikes. If it’s on two wheels we’re interested. You name a discipline, we do it! We are stoked to be stocking a range of bikes from Identiti - bikes designed by riders, for riders.

Alongside all this Graham also designs his own bespoke bike brand here at Slam69, it’s called  Smokestone Bikes, it’s predominantly fat bike and expanding as we type!

We could talk bikes all day so feel free to pop in for a cuppa, meet the team and have a browse!

Slam 69 – More than just a bicycle shop.

Slam69 | History - The garage where it all began.

For years Graham would be spending his evening's building up and tweaking bikes in his garage at home. He'd then fix up bikes for family and friends, which quickly became their friends, and then their friends. He started getting in spares, special tools and parts for all the repairs and servicing.

One day he took a look around and realised all of these spares and parts had built up an entire shop into the garage. He had tonnes of regular visitors and for all the local kids this was the meet up and hang out spot.

Custom Dartmoor Two6Player Builds - 2010

Graham's speciality was building up custom wheelbuilds and custom built bikes with components and colour scheme's that would make you drool. All of this attention and not to mention lack of space left in the garage, led to the start of Slam69 in 2010.

The new home of Slam69 - Gloucester Business Park, Gloucester

We moved out of the garage into a unit in Quedgeley Gloucester,
this lasted for 1 month as we quickly realised we were much bigger than the unit itself. After a search we found the perfect place to grow into, which is still our current location today in Gloucester Business Park Gloucester. 

Slam69 Shop - Growing into the new unit 2014

We continue to update and change the shop to adapt to fit in all of the stock we hold. Along with the workshop growing to manage all of the repairs, servicing and builds coming through.

With all of Graham's knowledge and experience, he's busy passing it onto to the whole Slam69 team as we grow bigger and better.

Now it's all about supplying a great friendly service to our customers.
Hope to see you soon, from all the team at Slam69 :-)
